    Facebook bots to enable Messenger commerce

    News in brief

    Facebook has given some developers access to an as yet unannounced Chat SDK that allows them to build interactive experiences and “bots” in Messenger for shopping, booking travel and more, according to TechCrunch. “The Chat SDK allows developers to create bots that users can send text messages to directly and that automatically respond with information, images, location services, product prices, buy buttons and more,” the publication reports. “The Chat SDK can also tap into Messenger’s built-in payments system to let users make purchases via bots.”
