Bots in Webex

Bots can help to extend the functionality in Webex to include a third-party app. 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.

You can add a bot to any type of space. Add a bot to your project space with other people and interact directly with the third-party app in your space. Or you can create a space with just you and the bot to interact with the third-party app.

The Cisco Webex App Hub contains a catalog of bots and apps developed by Cisco and third-party developers.
