Facebook Brings Music Sharing, Bot Discovery to Messenger

The Chatbot Revolution Is on Hold

The Chatbot Revolution Is on Hold

"Our goal was always to enable meaningful and useful conversations between people and businesses". "Millions of people entrust messaging apps to keep their relationships healthy, but they all cram our messages into the same fonts and colored bubbles".

Available today, ScribbleChat for Messenger enhances messaging with a personal touch, and empowers people to never message each other via plain text in the digital era.

The key piece of that is a discover tab for users to browse and find bot experiences.

Charlotte earns title match against Naomi on SmackDown Live next week
The horrific saga between Wyatt and Orton is still continuing and will culminate with the House of Horrors match for the title. Yes, it was Jinder Mahal who ended up winning the match and leaving fans in attendance at SmackDown Live in complete shock.

The new bot, however, brings the search and discovery features into Messenger itself, instead of being an external experience. The more you use M, the more it will make relevant suggestions to you. It wants Messenger to be a one-stop-shop for everything you do.

But that doesn't mean Facebook has given up on bots. At this point in time, Apple did not detail any method for how its chat extensions will work. The links will play the 30 second preview of the song, while tapping on it will open the full song. This is available in the United States where delivery.com serves. A new window pops up, overlaid on the chat, where you can find the music you want to share. And then you can do just that - all the way from picking what you want (maybe a pizza with pepperoni?) to paying for your meal. You've got the Alexas, the Messenger bots.

"Well, I think it all depends on our unbelievable 100,000 developer community we have, and what they're going to build", Marcus added.

"Western Union's global money movement platform-trusted by millions of customers worldwide-can now be accessed through the world's largest social network platform by users in the USA, enabling convenience, access and simplicity to further connect individuals and communities all over the world", said Odilon Almeida, President, Global Money Transfer at Western Union. It effectively grabs information from a restaurant's page and automatically answers customer questions."Automation is going to be a critical part of our joint success", Marcus said.

There are already about 100,000 monthly active Facebook Messenger bots out there right now, but a new suite of tools released at Facebook's F8 conference this week could lead to a lot more. It was likely posted ahead of Facebook's big announcement at its developer conference F8, where it's expected to unveil new features for Messenger, including "chat extensions", which will expand the default Messenger experience with new functionality. It's also introducing a games tab, which makes it easier to discover new titles. That's up from just 33,000 in September, and none last April, when the bot integration was announced.

Let's quickly dive into what is now possible with Messenger 2.0.
