Here are 5 Reasons That Make Google's Chatbot a Hit and Miss In India

By Sachin

    Google's new Assistant cum chatbot does a lot. Getting you your movie tickets, making dinner reservations, adding products to your shopping cart, etc. But no matter how cool the feature is, we can't seem to take it with a little suspicion.

    A genie everywhere

    The new Chatbot is not just an assistant. It's a genie in your Android smartphone. And it's aware of everything, including your conversations. So when you've just said that you'll go for dinner, your dinner reservations (or take away) suggestions are ready to be presented to you. You just have to say the magic word.

    Quick, fast, magical

    The Chatbot is always available (at least in Allo) to answer any queries with great speed and accuracy. This will make it the coolest feature on Android. And since we love chatting so much on instant messaging platforms, it won't be too long before we welcome the chatbot too to our daily lives.

So you search for your most trusted dealer (via the genie) who then is available to chat with you about all your requirements. But they're still miles away. You can still place your order, get images of the product you want and also interact with customer service directly.

    Monopoly...of sorts

    Since the Google Chatbot is ever present throughout the OS, it seems that other developers may not be able to bring chatbots of their own to the user level. Users may still interact with the third-party bots, but only through Google's Chatbot. That does sound a bit cruel.

    The age of chatbots

    Chatbots in Facebook Messenger have become a hit in the US. Albeit the technology is yet to hit success in India with many services. Many of the bigger players may already be in plans to get their chatbots live, but in a country where not every service is available online, the success of chatbots still looks bleak.
