Two ways how messaging apps are extinguishing apps
- Bots: Facebook has now more than one billion users and messaging apps have been used more than social networks. Solid ground for developers to publish chatbots to all kind of platforms. And lots of chatbots are appearing.
- App in App: Through a WeChat “official account” developers can offer app-like services in the WeChat app (“mini-apps”). Facebook tapped into a similar market by allowing users to send money or book a ride via its Messenger app.
