Yahoo makes its task management bot ‘Captain’ available on Facebook Messenger

|April 19, 2017 0

Yahoo has launched its ‘Captain’ bot for Facebook Messenger now. Launched last month as a SMS-based bot assistant to help families stay organized. The bot helps manage lists and reminders for family members via text message.

While developers generally build bots for messaging apps mainly, Yahoo chose to center Captain around text messaging. But now its has made the bot available for Facebook Messenger as well.

Captain on Messenger streamlines organization among groups, family and friends for managing activities with a shared tasks list. To start using it, you just have to add the bot to your group conversation.

With Captain, you can make plans with your favourite people without overloading them with tons of notifications and long, unorganized lists of requests and questions. For example, Captain can help you figure out who’s bringing what on your next backpacking trip or plan for an upcoming potluck dinner – without leaving Messenger.

“We are delighted that Yahoo is launching Captain on Messenger,” said Stan Chudnovsky, Vice President of Product for Messenger. “This bot will help users simplify group coordination, which can get harder the larger the group and longer the thread. This experience makes that interaction seamless.”
