Launched in December 2015, the uber bot pioneered in the chatbot industry. They were one of the first ones out there to leverage this new random thing Facebook Messenger just allowed us to do, and to do it well.
The uber chatbot allows you to create a new account and, of course, book your rides. Fire it up from your conversation, send a quick message (or a GIF) and off you go!
Another oldie but goodie, Sephora launched their Kik chatbot back in 2016. The bot is there to help us find the right beauty product, the one that suits our needs and style.
Early insight from Marriott show two out of three guests talk with the chatbot and getting an answer within five seconds.
'The chatbot will see you now', a sentence that has been used over and over in 2017. A team of Stanford psychologist built Woebot, a therapy chatbot.
Woebot checks in on your every day. It asks you questions about your mood, your day, and if there is anything you'd like to talk about.
Woebot is a paid service. It will cost you $39 a month to get the precious help from this tiny chat robot.
In the summer of 2017, Visabot pivoted to offer a full-on green card service. For the modest sum of $150, Visabot will help you through the complex green card process and schedule appointments for you.
So far, Visabot has helped over 70,000 applications.
The TripAdvisor chatbot is recommendation only. Ever been to a new area and wondered where the best organic tofu restaurant is? Yeah, me neither.
But if you did, you could ask TripAdvisor's bot!
The TripAdvisor chatbot is a window to the user-generated content that makes TripAdvisor so useful. You cannot book anything straight through the chatbot, but you will find all the information you are looking for in a conversational way.
