There are wireless systems and mobile apps that have significantly improved the process of getting a document to print and HP is continuing to offer greater convenience to consumers with its Facebook Messenger Bot.

The 'HP Print Bot' works within Facebook Messenger and makes it easy for consumers to print their photos, documents and files after starting a "conversation" with the AI bot. The bot is able to make comments like "Nice photo!" before offering a button to confirm printing on a connected HP printer, which brings some friendly human qualities to the inanimate device.

The Facebook Messenger bot is also able to send notifications to a user when it is nearing the time to replace the ink or toner cartridges for the printer.
