The new Facebook Messenger bot is a clever little tool that helps identify objects in pictures. Whether it is a shadowy figure or an unidentifiable shape, this friendly bot is the perfect answer to questions about what may be hiding in plain sight.

The bot belongs to the page 'WTF Is That?,' which serves to help users decipher unidentifiable images. To use the feature, users simply visit the page and send a message with the picture they wish to have examined. Within a couple of minutes the bot will identify the object in the image and send a message explaining what it is. The bot can even provide brand names when possible.

The tool ultimately provides a simple and easy way for users to identify objects in their photos.
