Share the links to your bots in social networks and messengers. When you send a link in Skype, WhatsApp and other applications, the recipients will now be able to see a preview and a short description of your bot.
Cards: a menu was added to add attributes to the cards easily. Just choose the desired menu item, and an attribute will be added to the card.
The design of creating a bot is renewed: user-friendly preview and a range of templates that you can use as a source of inspiration. There are more than 50 templates in different themes suitable for various business targets. In short order we are going to expand that list even more and add new templates and versions in other languages.
New Inbox message notification sounds: now you won’t miss any new conversations with your users.
Now there’s an option to send an audio file only, instead of a text message from the bot. You can still send both an audio file and a text, you can build your bot the way you want it to be like. Make sure that in Text-to-Speech manual mode you have a generated file, otherwise the bot will only send a text. - When you send an audio file only, embedded media will be missing.
