You can also include: Carousel, Image, Audio, Video, Request Location, as well as set of buttons:

Let’s go through those:

  1. Next section - by clicking on this one, customers will simply move to the next part of your Convo once they click it.

3. Link to another convo

When you choose this a list of existing convos will appear and you can choose which one you wish to link to:

4. Follow - in your convo you can add Follow options for customers that haven’t followed your bot yet. If a customer has already followed your bot they won’t see this reply.

5. Share - this is how your customers can easily share your Convo on Facebook Messenger. When they choose to share they will see a share preview and then be able to share with their friends.

6. Link to other featured in your bot! For instance, you might want to link to a form, messages or more.
