New Translation Tool Allows Developers to Deploy Bots to Multiple Messaging Platforms

Our vision is for bots that work everywhere.

Message.io, the standard for bot syndication, today launched in private beta. The Y Combinator-backed company provides a service that allows developers to expand their reach by deploying an existing bot to multiple messaging platforms without making any coding changes.

Developers who have built a bot natively for one platform, such as Slack or HipChat, no longer need to rebuild their bot for each new messaging platform. Developers simply connect their bot to Message.io and use a one-click deployment utility to provision their bot on any supported messaging platforms. Message.io translates and relays messages back and forth, allowing the bot to communicate with users on any platform.

“Our vision is for bots that work everywhere. We believe that all bots should work on all messaging platforms,” said Tom Hadfield, the CEO of Message.io. “The concept of a ‘Facebook bot’ or a ‘Slack app’ doesn't make any more sense than a website that is 'optimized for Internet Explorer’ or ‘optimized for Netscape’. If you look back through human history, all communication technologies that have survived – postal mail, telephone, email, etc – have trended towards interoperability. There’s no reason to think bots and messaging will be any different.”

Message.io currently provides bot syndication to and from Slack, HipChat and Skype, and will be adding support for additional enterprise and consumer platforms in the coming months. Developers can sign up today to deploy their existing bots across the messaging ecosystem.

Features and benefits of the service include:
>  Cross-platform bot translation – translate your existing bot between Slack, HipChat and Skype without making any changes to your code.
> One-click deployment – provision your bot on new chat platforms with minimal effort.
>  Optimized user experience – Message.io ensures all features remain true to their original function, regardless of platform.

To start reaching more users today, sign up for the private beta at Message.io.
