Bots in Webex Teams

Bots can help extend the functionality in Webex Teams to include third-party apps. You can add bots to Webex Teams 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 Teams in various ways. Through Cards, however, it is easier for users to interact directly with the bot’s response to a command.
