Messenger Chat Bot (M-Bot) is a chat system introduced to the Messenger application platform. Its origin is from the Yahoo! Messenger application and was later extended to include more applications like Yahoo! Weather, Yahoo! Sports and Yahoo! News.
Messenger Chat Bot takes as input the name of the user sending a message. Once it has that information, it can then answer any incoming message. The website chatbot on Yahoo! Weather, Yahoo! Sports and Yahoo! News can respond to a message with either a generic weather forecast or its local weather forecast.
It is possible to run a live version of the Messenger Chat Bot on the Messenger application platform. The process of using this application to automate the Yahoo! Weather application is a matter of setting up a default account with M-Bot and authenticating it to the application.
Bot has two user interface modes: personalized and splash. In personalized mode, the Messenger Chat Bot automatically adapts to the user's preferences, which you can change at any time with the option menu. In splash mode, the bot is presented with a splash photo of the weather report for the given location.
The Messenger Bot supports the same set of protocols as the Yahoo! Weather application. It can also be used as a web service in order to receive an update about weather conditions for a specified location.
M-Bot is a proprietary application of Messenger and runs on its own web server. Its deployment is controlled through the Webhook URL of the Messenger application. Once configured, this service is available to the operator of the Messenger Chat Bot from the service interface of the Messenger Chat Bot.
The service performs a series of checks when an incoming message is received by the Messenger Chat Bot. These checks are aimed at making sure that the message has not been sent before or the message is not addressed to some other user. Furthermore, the program checks the sender's credentials and if the service cannot verify the identity of the message sender, the message is then discarded.
The Messages sent to the M-Bot are recorded and displayed in chronological order. The messages are displayed alphabetically, but it is possible to view a message that is filtered through a Boolean search. When a message is filtered, the bot will display all of the messages that come after it.
Once the M-Bot is initialized, the M-Bot will go through several protocols in order to connect to the Messenger application platform. The first protocol calls a message received by the M-Bot from the webhook URL. This protocol is also called "connect."
The second protocol is the message sent to the M-Box. This protocol is called "send." The M-Bot will use this protocol to send a message to the service.
In both cases, the M-Bot will first display the request to connect to the M-Bot and then open a connection to the services. The M-Bot will then display a request to send a message and then send the message.
The M-Bot can be set up to send or receive messages and can even be configured to act as a web service for accessing the Yahoo! Weather service.
