During this year’s TechCrunch Disrupt conference held in the city of San Francisco in California, David Marcus, the head of Facebook’s Messenger, revealed that the social media giant’s messaging platform now has support for native payments without having to direct mobile users to an external website.
For a while now, people speculated that Facebook could be doing something to improve its Messenger app. Today, the speculation was finally put to a rest since the team behind Facebook confirmed news that they were adding chatbot support to Messenger. Along with its announcement, they have given the name "Bots for Messenger" for the service.
On stage, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg demonstrated how the new update could revolutionize the way people use Messenger. With just a few messages to the chatbot, Zuckerberg was able to order flowers from 1-800-Flowers. Shortly after the request was sent, a CNN bot offered breaking news of the demo.
