chatbot publishing platform is a medium through which a chatbot can be accessed and used by users. A chatbot development platform, on the other hand, is a tool/application through which one can create a chatbot. We have chatbot development platforms like Chatfuel, Botsify, etc. which help you to create a chatbot; we will learn more about them later on. Chatbot platforms help you by letting you add more functionality to your bot by creating a flow, providing machine learning capabilities and API integration, etc.

Here are seven top chatbot platforms!

1. Chatfuel

Even a person without any knowledge of coding can create their own bot on Facebook Messenger using Chatfuel. It provides features like adding content cards and sharing them with your followers automatically, gathering information inside Messenger chats with forms, and letting users request info and interact with your bot with buttons. And it's completely free!

2. Botsify

Botsify is another popular Facebook Messenger chatbot platform. It uses a drag-and-drop template to create bots. Features people want when creating chatbots, like easy integrations via plugins, smart AI, machine learning, and analytics integrations, are available. Although machine learning and AI integration would be tough for people who do not have technical knowledge, its drag-and-drop template makes the process simple. The Botsify platform is free for one bot, and you pay after that.

3. Flow XO

This the only chatbot platform to provide over 100 integrations. It boasts an easy-to-use visual editor. Using Flow XO, we can build one bot for many platforms, unlike other platforms where we have to make bots repeatedly. It is limited to a certain number of conversations, upon which a subscription has to be created for further use.

4. Beep Boop

This chatbot platform provides an end-to-end developer experience that allows users to focus on building great bots. Beep Boop is focused on providing the best place to run Slack bots.

5. Bottr

Bottr is an interesting concept to make your personal bot from your real Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter accounts.

We got our bot ready using Bottr in less than five minutes, and it creates questions automatically from Facebook data. Bottr gives you an option to embed your bot on your website. You can also add data from a medium, WordPress, or Wikipedia for better data coverage.

6. Motion.ai

Motion.ai is a chatbot platform to visually build, train, and deploy chatbots on FB Messenger, Slack, Smooch, or your website. It lets you create a flowchart of your conversation to get a visual overview of the outcomes of a bot query. Then connect your bot to a messaging service like Slack, Facebook Messenger, and Go. Motion.ai allows you to deploy Node.js code directly from its interface along with several other integrations.

7. Chattypeople

The Chattypeople platform has predefined chatbots ready for you. The website has templates prepared for e-commerce, customer support, and food businesses. But if you select the e-commerce chatbot, then you only have to add products, Q&A, and some general settings.

TrueSight is an AIOps platform, powered by machine learning and analytics, that elevates IT operations to address multi-cloud complexity and the speed of digital transformation.
