5 Google Talk Chatbots That Are Still Useful

Recently, I started exploring the potential of using bots on my website to interact with my visitors. After accomplishing that task, I thought that it might be worthwhile to explore what other bots still exist out there that might have some useful features.

How To Get An Automatic Text Message When Your Favorite TV Show Is On

Almost everyone enjoys watching some TV at one time or another. It is a terrific way to take your mind off the world around you and relax.

Get Better Multi-Platform Multimedia Group Messaging With WhatsApp

One of the most popular methods of direct mobile communication is SMS. It’s short, cheaper than a direct phone call, non-intrusive, and most importantly, multi-platform. To overcome the text-only limitation of SMS, MMS also appears. But both services have one main disadvantage.
