2016 - Telegram released Bot Platform 2.0 - a new advantage over Wickr


Messaging platform Telegram announced a 2.0 update to its bot platform  - the biggest update since launch last year.  The update brings the ability for devs to build bots that can send any type of content supported on Telegram, such as documents, MP3s, videos, stickers, animations and contacts; support for location-based services; and the ability to deeply integrate with other services based on users’ phone numbers. It’s also adding inline keyboards that can be structured to mesh with a particular bot’s messages — so users can tap on pre-determined buttons to respond to the bot, rather than needing to type out specific instructions. Telegram has built four sample bots to show off the new features: @music, a bot for searching for and sharing classical music; @youtube, a bot for searching and sharing YouTube videos; @foursquare, a bot for finding nearby restaurants and places to share addresses with friends; and @sticker, a bot for finding stickers using — you guessed it — emoji as the start point for a sticker search.
