Description & Details


Enables blind to receive live assistance from sighted volunteers.

Lend your eyes to a blind person in need through a live video connection or be assisted by the network of sighted users.

Be My Eyes is all about contributing and benefiting from small acts of kindness, so hop on board and get involved!

Blind or visually impaired users can request help from a sighted volunteer, who will be notified on their phone. As soon as the first sighted user accepts the request for help, a live audio-video connection will be set up between the two parts. The sighted helper can now assist the blind or visually impaired, through the video connection from the blind or visually impaired user’s rear-facing camera.

As a sighted user, you are part of the big Be My Eyes volunteer-network, so don’t worry about leaving a blind person hanging, if you are not able to answer a request. We will simply forward the request and find the next available volunteer.

The blind or visually impaired person can need help with anything from knowing the expiry date on the milk, to making sure that their clothes match.

Note: We encourage blind or visually impaired users to be patient, when making a request, because we rely on real people to help you. Most calls are answered within 60 seconds.

- Live audio-video connection between blind or visually impaired and sighted users
- Add the languages you speak in settings
- An easy way to make a difference for blind or visually impaired people

  • Small acts of kindness: Android users can now assist blind people worldwide via Be My Eyes

    (17 days ago)

    A couple of years ago, a small app called Be My Eyes launched on iOS. A great tool with that “change the world” attitude behind it. Basically, you register in the app as either a blind person or a sighter user. The former can request assistance whenever they need something to be read or described to them. Then, the app queues up a list of sighted users and starts pinging them for assistance. When a helper is found, the blind person points their phone at whatever they need “seen” — an expiry date ...

The bad video quality makes it really difficult to help when someone asks what color the object is. If a call gets disconnected, you cannot tell if the other person did it or it was network issues. You cannot return to the call if it was network issues. The idea is great, execution is lacking.

Let me start by saying, thank you to be my eyes Developers for giving Android users the ability to see too. And, thank you to the be my eyes volunteers both new and old, for giving us your eyes to see with. When this app came out for the beta version I was extremely ecstatic. And extremely excited.

I really want to do this, but I'm uncomfortable talking on the phone to strangers. I wish there was a photo(s) + text chat option. This would probably also be helpful for people with connectivity or data limit issues.
