Bots in Webex
Bots can help extend the functionality in Webex to include third-party apps. You can add bots to Webex spaces and interact directly with the third-party app from the space. When you've added the bot to the space, you can send a help message to the bot and the response includes the commands that the bot supports.
Bots can present information within Webex in various ways. Through Cards, however, it is easier for users to interact directly with the bot’s response to a command.
