Your bots can share and receive rich media file types with customers to answer questions that can be better explained using images, files, or videos. This will enable businesses to share and collect information from their customers in a format of their choice, significantly reducing the overall resolution time.
For example, an e-commerce business’ bot can send an image of a product or might want to collect a photo of a damaged item/order from a customer to initiate a refund. As a business, you may also want to send video tutorials, demonstration videos, an invoice, or even a product catalog to your customers.
Sending files, images, and videos through your bot:
- To enable businesses to send or receive images, files, or videos through the bot builder flow,
- Click on the Bot icon from the Nav bar
