The Facebook Messenger Bot is Facebook's official bot application. Users can integrate bots to conversations in Messenger to improve interactions. However, Facebook did not create this application.
A web app that focuses on only Messenger. The bot only responds to pre-programmed triggers, making it compatible with most, if not all, platforms. This app was designed for users who want to integrate a chat bot into their conversations and take control of the conversation. It allows users to quickly change the mood of the chat so that the bot feels like it is being spoken to and responds accordingly.
For instance, bot developers can program the bot to engage in a private conversation with one person. The bot will start out as a "high-energy" conversation with a user. As time passes, the bot will grow in confidence. If the bot has found something significant about the conversation, it will ask the user if it should send a message. If the user says yes, the bot will contact the user with the information.
This type of bot is useful for users who use this type of application regularly. Users are less likely to be frustrated by the constant interruptions in the chats with this type of bot. Once the bot has found the key information, it will send the message to the user at the time the user asked.
There are no restrictions on how many bots can be programmed to chat on a single conversation. However, Facebook restricts bots that take up too much memory. Because Facebook wants to encourage bot developers to develop cool applications that do not take up too much memory, there are several limits on the number of bots.
BOT developers can add their own chat functionality to the bot by creating add-ons. These add-ons allow users to program the bot to send additional messages. Bots can also install more advanced chat features with add-ons that allow it to send and receive WebRTC calls.
This is great news for developers because WebRTC calls enable the bot to connect to the chat room through a headset or other computer-to-computer device. This enables a high degree of interactivity between the bot and the user. WebRTC allows the user to share videos, audio, documents, and other data by instant messaging.
Bots can be scheduled to run at specific times of day. The bot can be given specific commands such as setting timers or carrying out specific tasks. The commands can be set up and managed using the Messenger apps. It is really convenient for users who want to schedule their Bot tasks.
If users have a lot of Bot tasks, the bot will become extremely valuable. Users should be able to schedule the Bot to respond to messages at certain times. When this happens, users will be able to speak to the bot in the same manner they speak to other users.
WebRTC makes it possible for the Bot to communicate with the user in real time. This makes it possible for users to make changes to the content of the conversation without going through the Messenger app. For example, the bot can post a new status to announce a message from the user.
With Messenger Bot extensions, users can easily build chat bots. Users can install add-ons on their browser that allows them to program the bot to perform a task or process new data as well. This means that any feature the user wants the bot to have can be programmed.
When building a Bot extension, developers should consider the different ways the user wants the bot to work. The information that the user desires should be stored in a shared database so that the information is available when the user needs it. Also, communication with the user should be kept quick and efficient. The web app should be designed to work like a native Messenger app so that users will get what they expect from the application.
