How to Use Facebook’s Automated Messenger BOTS

Facebook just unveiled some new and crazy for people seeking results immediately. Its like searching results in Google but way faster then it too. You can actually chat with the BOT instead of typing a specific command you can chat freely whatever you can and results would be given instantly. I liked the Poncho BOT (a weather CAT) that given results related to weather from all over the world.

I just made a search for “Weather in Chandigarh” and result was given instantly as “75 Degree Fahrenheit” then I replied again “In Celsius” it replied again “25 Degree Celsius” so its not just picking up a single command but it remind what you asked it earlier and replies you back with whatever refinement you require in your results.

There was a similar BOT in Whatsapp I posted earlier about the “DUTA WhatsApp BOT” that provides pretty much everything from weather to results and anything. Its a good option too as majority of you are using WhatsApp more then Facebook Messenger.
