2016 Messenger Line introduced bots

Line has enabled developers to create bots for its messaging up. Line is initially capping things with just 10,000 ‘trial’ bots open on a first come, first serve basis. Bots will be limited to 50 friends — or 50 accounts that they serve — which is further proof that this is a very much a test before a wider rollout. There’s nothing much to speak of right now for end users, but with the tech now in the hands of developers, we could see the first Line bots roll out soon. Facebook is also expected to open its Messenger platform for bots at its F8 event next week.
