Get started with bots

Bots are special accounts you can chat with, just as you would with people. Bots provide a conversational way for you to connect to services in Hangouts Chat, such as looking up information, scheduling meetings, performing tasks and so on.

Bots are created by software developers and added to Hangouts Chat by Google and your G Suite administrator. Every Hangouts Chat user can use bots.

Some bots are created and maintained by Google, such as the @meet and @drive bots. Other bots are created and maintained by software vendors outside of Google.
