Telegram It is one of the most powerful alternatives to WhatsApp that we can find today. Not only in terms of privacy (much safer than the Facebook app), but also due to the large number of advantages it offers compared to WhatsApp.
One of its most outstanding characteristics is the use of bots, thanks to which we can obtain functionalities that escape from what we usually find in an instant messaging app "to use".
What is a bot and what is it for?
Basically, a bot (derived from the term "robot") is a computer application designed to carry out a certain task automatically. This makes it widely used in the field of online chat, since it is really practical to offer quick answers to frequently asked questions.
Thus, when we use the chat offered by some stores, websites or portals, many times we are communicating with a bot, which has been programmed to satisfy all the doubts that we may have as customers of their service. For companies it is a more than ideal solution, since this way they avoid having a "real" person in charge of the chat 24 hours a day, which (once the initial development cost has been paid) is much more profitable in the long term.
The bots that we can find in Telegram also fall into the category of conversational chats, although their functions they are the most diverse. To use a bot on Telegram, just type your username in the search bar and open a chat. Once we have started the conversation, we can start it up simply by typing the command "/ start”.
