At the same time, the trend of young people from 13 to 17 years old now loves to interact via text messages and one-way interactions such as: shopping by themselves, looking for interactive objects themselves … realizing that this road has a lot of prospects to be determined to pursue and create new features in addition to “chatting” merely, “Nguyen Van Minh Duc said.

No programming knowledge required, and on the Hekate platform, users can create their own chatbots for the field or event they need, then train and embed them into Messenger to use. In particular, the more you communicate with chatbots, the smarter it will be, ”shared BY Minh Duc.
