Chatbots are traditionally used for businesses, marketing, and productivity but beneath the surface they have other uses as well including email productivity bots. We can use chatbots for personal use to help us get through the day, whether you need a pick-me-up or you are looking for easy access to information. Looking at AI options can be the next best thing. Productivity Chatbots are fairly simple to use, with most of them connecting to Facebook messenger, Twitter, WhatsApp or even your own messaging service and most don’t even need a subscription!
Here are 7 chatbots to help you survive a work day:
1. Motivation Daily
That horrible Monday blues feeling is recognized by so many of us and it can really put a downer on your day. However, now you can boost your Monday motivation and receive daily quotes and tips to get you going with Motivation Daily – just send it a message on Facebook messenger. Once a month you’ll get a page from an associated self-help eBook and you can get inspiration galore daily.
2. Dinner Ideas
Unless you’re up for the pizza bot, this is the perfect way to plan your evening, particularly if you know you are working late in the office. You no longer have to worry about what’s for dinner because the Dinner Ideas bot has you covered. You can tell it what ingredients you have available in your fridge and it can come up with suitable recipes that match, or simply ask it for suggestions based on food preferences! This would also be perfect if you work from home and need to start eating better food, rather than reaching for those unhealthy snacks.
After taking a hiatus, Digg has come back stronger then ever and it’s the perfect bot to find the latest news, gossip and trending topics. Use the search function to look over articles or stories of interest in a variety of different categories including; tech, sports and politics and have a daily “edition” (like the morning paper) sent to you according to your programmed preferences. With Digg, you know you will never miss a thing!
Sports fans never have to miss out again. Using theScore messenger bot you can follow your favorite sport’s teams, get live updates and scores as well as funny pictures and stories. The feed will also share social media videos and pictures of some of your favorite players too!
5. Smart Notes Bot
Doing exactly what it says on the tin, Smart Notes Bot can help you avoid emailing yourself (which can get annoying) as well as leaving yourself written notes (which can get lost.) Instead, simply message the Smart Note Bot on Facebook messenger and allow it to remember it for you. You can write text and save it as a note or add a reminder to it with a time to message you as well. You can also simply delete old notes and reminders or search through hashtags to find more of what you are looking for. It also uses some pretty cute Gifs to communicate too, which will brighten your day.
This Facebook messenger AI can give you instant updates on the weather to let you know the forecast hourly, daily or on demand. Poncho uses your location settings to get as accurate as it can and send you personalized updates with a sweet little kitty face! There are other settings such as your horoscopes and severe weather warnings such as floods or tornadoes for your area. It is also available in the Apple or Play store and on Viber and Kik too.
If you can’t wait to get home to Netflix and chill, you can hire your own curator for Netflix to decide what to watch based on questions or preferences you ask it. You connect via your Facebook messenger app, tell AndChill previous movies or TV shows you’ve enjoyed and why, and it will recommend new options and send you a link to the YouTube trailer for you to check out! Perfect for saving time on deciding what to watch (or sneaking in some YouTube when no one is looking!)
Regardless of how you want to spend your working day or if you are looking for fun ways to amuse yourself at lunch, these bots are for you. Whether it’s sports, food, entertainment or the weather, a chatbot can give you what you need so check these ones out.
