Facebook Launches Messenger Platform with Chat Bots

During F8 Developer Conference, Facebook launches a messenger platform with chatbots. Facebook’s CEO, Zuckerberg showed off how the bots can provide anything from automated subscription content like weather and traffic updates, to customized communications like receipts, shipping notifications, and live automated messages all by interacting directly with the people who want to get them.

During F8 Developer Conference, Facebook launches a messenger platform with chatbots.

Three Main Capabilities Within Bots for Messenger
  • Send/Receive API. This new capability includes the ability to send and receive text, images, and rich bubbles with CTAs.
  • Generic Message Templates. We think people prefer to tap buttons and see beautiful images, rather than learn a new programming language to interact with your bot. That's why we've built structured messages with call to actions, horizontal scroll, urls, and postbacks.
  • Welcome screen + Null state CTAs. Our first principle was giving developers space to own the experience. Think of the message thread as your app. We're giving you the real estate and the tools to customize your experience. This starts with the welcome screen. People discover our featured bots and enter the conversation. Then, they see your brand, your Messenger greeting, and a call to action to “Get Started”.

Starting today, all developers and businesses will be able to build bots for Messenger, and then submit them for review b y which Facebook will gradually accept and approve submissions to ensure the best experiences for everyone on Messenger.


In addition to that, the company has built discovery tools  like Web plugins, Messenger Codes, Messenger Links, or Messenger Usernames.
