Yahoo has introduced four new algorithmically-driven bots to Facebook Messenger to help users get news, stock market trends, weather forecasts. The fourth bot is a pet monkey, in case that is what you wish for on Facebook Messenger, instead of friends.

One can search for Yahoo Messenger bots on iOS and Android by typing @YahooFinance, @YahooNews, @YahooWeather or @MonkeyPet.

Yahoo Finance (@YahooFinance), exclusively on Facebook Messenger. This bot allows you to search the latest news and information in order to stay on top of the stock market and ever-changing world of finance. Follow market trends, read finance news and play fun games, then easily share information you find interesting with your friends.


The Monkey Pet is a bot where you can “Send as many emojis as your heart desires,” says Yahoo and this ‘virtual pet’ will shares selfies from its ‘travels.’ So in case you wished to bond with a monkey, then Yahoo’s @MonkeyPet is your best bet.


Facebook announced this year that it was opening up bots for businesses across the world. The only problem with bots is that they are automated and might not always the smartest replies.
