“Messengers are already bigger than social networks” and now, it becomes more popular with chatbots. Connecting with Chatbots, TechCrunch comes with its new weapon to increase user retention. TechCrunch has launched bots for cross-platform and personalized news recommendations on Facebook Messenger.
Revealed at F8, Facebook has opened Messenger to third-party bots and TechCrunch bot allows readers to get the news that they want from TechCrunch in a more conversational way.
What Can TechCrunch’s New Weapon Do?
The goal of TechCrunch’s New Weapon is to stay on the top of the topics and stories the users care about the most. Users can subscribe to different topics, sections of the site, authors. After that, the bot will send users a news article from TechCrunch to your Facebook Messenger.
For example –
When you are subscribing news about Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and Facebook, the bot will send a digest of trending stories about the topics twice a day, however, it will send the popular stories one in a day. Users can also ask a question about anything to the bot. Like I asked a question that “Who is Mark Zuckerberg?” and it replied.

You will see start screen that gives information on TechCrunch bot and a digest stories that bot will send twice in a day. If you want to ask anything else, you can click on ‘OK, what else?’ otherwise ‘No, thanks.’
