Messenger Bots are a new way to connect to your customers through Facebook messenger app.
When a customer message you on your Facebook page, messenger bot will greet the customer , answer their questions, show updates(blog posts, weather forecasts, traffic updates), take their online orders, gather their information, provide receipts, connect with your existing application or website and place the order there and provide tracking information for the shipment etc.
The possibilities are endless with messenger bot and all your customer needs to do is install one app which they probably already have installed on their devices. Considering the number of people using Facebook messenger has reached one billion.
You don't need to create a separate app for your business, spend money on developing and then marketing the app and your customers still might not install it. You can just have a messenger bot which can provide all the services of an app to your clients.

Note: Messenger bot needs to pass the Facebook review process before being publicly available.
