Samsung Galaxy S9 Messages app to receive support for Chatbot


Google’s Chat service makes use of chatbot. This feature will be ready on the Samsung Galaxy S9 soon via the Messages app which is the device’s default messaging program. At the moment, only AT&T phones can be supported but we’re expecting the same support will also be available for more Android phones and networks as well. Chatbot is actually an RCS feature. The latter is what Google Chat uses and Samsung is believed to be working on it for the S9.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 has received Android 8.0 Oreo with the latest May security patch. One developer discovered that chatbots can let a user communicate with a company or another group for special services or help with other things like checking flights, shopping, planning trips, or receiving news. Chatbot allows the gathering of information without having to download or launch different apps. You only need to ask a question with this chatbot and get the details you need.

At the moment, chatbot supports a few major companies such as Walgreens, 1-800-Flowers Assistant, Style Inspire, SnapTravel, JustAnswers 24-7 Experts, SkyScanner, HereWeGo Chat, CNN, and 385Scores. These are official and verified companies so scammers won’t be a problem.

Here is a sample conversation between an XDA developer and a CNN Chatbot:
