Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google To Compete With Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) With The Launch of Chatbots

Reports have proved that Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google is preparing a chatbot-related announcement of its own during Google I/O.

Google has joined the likes of Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) with the announcement of its chatbot.

Many have claimed that chatbots are going to be the next big thing in software, and this might be the reason why tech companies are aggressively investing in this platform.

Google relies on AI for the search function and features like Google Now but now the AI might be used for an entirely different function in terms of chatbots. The theory concerning Google’s chatbot is that even if the company chatbot messaging app fails to take off it will still be part of the system, getting access to users’ data.

Reports from The Information, notes that Google has missed when it comes to a new wave of popular chat app. Google’s Messenger and Hangout don’t come close to the likes of Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and WeChat.

Despite the fact that Hangouts does not compare with Facebook Messenger, its Android users have a lot to gain from including getting access to chatbots.

The concept of chatbots is relatively new, and many might not understand what it is. Chatbots in plain language are artificially intelligent micro-assistant that answers questions and information within the chat app. What makes them so useful is the fact that they don’t require extra apps to function. They can also be accessed within a central app – a chat app eliminating the need to change apps when performing different tasks.

This is not the first time that reports on Google integrating chatbots in its service have emerged. Back in December, the Wall Street Journal reported that Google was considering integrating chatbots into a messaging app.

Chatbots have received mixed review proving how early they are in the development phase. One thing that will be interesting to see is whether Google will bring something to the table as opposed to just implementing chatbots in a chat app like how Facebook and Microsoft have done.
