Today we are introducing a quicker way to contact bots.
With the new inline mode, bots become omnipresent and can be used as a tool in any of your chats, groups or channels – it doesn't matter, whether the bot is a member or not.
Hundreds of new inline bots are sure to arrive once developers start supporting the new mode.
If you are a developer, take a look at our Introduction to Inline Bots.
A chatbot is a computer programme that uses artificial intelligence to interact with users through a messaging service in a way that is designed to seem like a conversation.
Inline bots can help you with dozens of different tasks, like quickly sending relevant GIFs, pictures from the Web, You Tube videos, Wikipedia articles, etc. This way you can share stuff from bots without any hassle.Inline bots don't see any messages in your chats – they only receive what you type after their username in the input field. Like pretty much everything else at Telegram, inline bots are part of an open platform, available for free to every developer in the world starting today.Bots became an integral part of Telegram for many users, but communication with them wasn't always easy.You had to send them messages in separate chats or add them to your groups.Also, feel free to subscribe to our official @Bot News channel to stay up to date on platform news.
An important part of our job at m VAM is to stay tuned into the developments in the rapidly evolving mobile technology sector.
