Report: Google Is Jumping Into The Chat Bot Business (Forbes)

Forbes: Report: Google Is Jumping Into The Chat Bot Business. “Both Microsoft and Facebook have already announced a series of bot-making tools for developers at similar conferences this past year. But Google’s approach looks set to be more like Microsoft’s than Facebook’s, whose chatbot engine and software development kits will only work on Facebook’s Messenger Platform. Facebook can afford to limit its software, since Messenger boasts upwards of 900 million monthly active users. Google and Microsoft appear to be taking the cross platform approach as they don’t benefit from anywhere near as wide a user base on any of their respective chat solutions.”
