Facebook Chatbot Review: HP Print Bot

Utility bots make a lot of sense! At Metablocks we have actually build a number of internal utility bots that help automate things such as retrieving stats and reports, sending messages, getting commonly used information from a central servers and more! HP Print Bot has one simple function, it lets you print photos (from Facebook Messenger) and that's pretty much it (it also guides you to setup your printer and links-out to purchase supplies).
