SMS has become and remains the most widely distributed service in the world – even the boom in social media boom has not eclipsed the popularity of text messaging. While SMS messaging has become central to our everyday life, it’s currently only used in the narrow context of personal communications. What if we could extend messaging beyond this? What if messaging could transform the way we interact with computers the same way it transformed the way we interact with each other?

Chat Bot conversation messaging is the “next big thing” no longer do you need to learn an app-specific user interface.  Nor does it require users to change apps for every service and requirement.
