The Facebook Bot makes it possible for consumers to engage in natural conversations on Messenger and CNN news is one of many outlets that's making the most of the features available in order to share the news in an ultra-convenient way.

With the bot, users are able to subscribe in order to receive important daily news updates, search stories with keywords and best of all, get a summary of an article if time is limited. Unlike many one-way news outlets, this interactive one makes learning about new developments in the world feel as natural as chatting with a friend.

Since Facebook launched bots for Messenger, this feature has been used to help consumers do everything from order fast food to book airline tickets and get financial advice, all thanks to artificial intelligence.
