Skype bots can now chat with you on the web

Microsoft has added support for bots to the web version of Skype, allowing those users of the VoIP service to chat with AI messaging bots. Microsoft previously launched Skype bots for the Windows, Android iPhone and iPad versions.

Skype web users can access this feature by selecting "Discover Bots" on the left toolbar to see a list of available Bots. Microsoft added that it has been introducing new Skype bots to chat with since the initial announcement, such as:

  • Murphy, a Bot to find and create images for when questions can't be answered by words alone
  • Summarize, a Bot designed to give an overview of a web page if you don't have time to read the whole thing

Microsoft also announced that Skype bots are now available on the Mac.
