OpenTable launches new bot for Facebook Messenger
OpenTable’s bot for Messenger enables diners to search and suggest available restaurants to friends as well as make reservations through the bot without leaving Messenger.
“We’re delighted that our millions of global diners are now able to plan and make restaurant reservations with their Facebook friends all within Messenger,” said OpenTable’s Catherine Porter.
“We hope this service helps diners more easily collaborate on dining plans by sharing restaurant suggestions and coordinating a reservation all in one place.
“Dining out is inherently social and millions of people are already using Messenger and social media to connect with friends to discuss dining. The addition of the OpenTable bot for Messenger is a natural extension of this behaviour enabling them to plan and book together.”
