Messaging platform Line ups its chatbot game
With over 200M Active Users and a recent IPO under its belt, Southeast Asian Messaging powerhouse, LINE, has just seriously upped it’s Chatbot game. Sure it launched its bot platform a week before Facebook, but with new features like visual message types (very similar to Messenger’s generic carousels), an SDK, and the ability to let external services send user notifications (called Line Notify), Line is all in for Bots. They even have a bot competition with a $98K prize! We are actually migrating our current LINE integration to the new Messaging API this week.
