Google's Chatbot-Filled Messaging Service

Google’s Working on a Chatbot-Filled Messaging Service

Nathaniel Mott | December 23, 2015

Google isn’t content to let Facebook dominate the messaging market in the West. The Wall Street Journal reports that the company is working on a platform that will allow consumers to message assistive “chatbots” as well as real-live humans.
Details about the service are scarce. A name wasn’t revealed, for instance, nor was a timeframe for when consumers might expect to be able to use the app. But the report did reveal that Google’s been working on the product for about a year.

A report in the Wall Street Journal claims that Google is working on yet another mobile messaging service, this one with a heavy focus on artificial intelligence. The platform would include a number of so-called “chatbots” for responding to user queries, according to the report — sort of an “OK Google” for in-chat assistance.
