Follow the Olympic Games directly on your WhatsApp and receive the latest news and event calendars.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games have already been underway for a few days, but there are still many events and tests to be held. Did you know that you can follow this edition of the Olympics by WhatsApp?
Despite the year of delay in its celebration, the Olympic Games mark these weeks of the year and, although the schedules are not ideal to follow them from some countries, we have multiple ways to do it and be informed of everything. Social networks from our smartphone, official website, televisions, online channels… and even a WhatsApp chat with the official bot of the Olympic Games.
The chatbot of the Olympic Games
As Omicrono’s colleagues tell us, the organization has taken advantage of the functions of the WhatsApp Business API to offer any user a chatbot with which to request all kinds of information about the events, and receive it instantly directly in the messaging application.
What is a chatbot? In essence, it is a chat with an automatic account of the Olympics and you can access it directly from this link. When we open it, it will take us to WhatsApp and we will start talking to the Olympics chatbot.
To start it, just type “hello” and the bot will respond with the different options and functions for which it has been programmed. Specifically, we can receive by WhatsApp the calendar and schedules of upcoming events, information on live broadcasts, see the status of the medal standings for different countries, check news highlights, breaking news, and highlights of each day, try the latest Instagram stickers and filters and even collect them.
Each of these options is numbered, so all we have to do is type those numbers in the chart, and for tenths of a second, we will receive an answer.
From the organization, they have converted their official website into a web app and during the next weeks of events in the Olympic Games this Olympics application is a very good option to follow and be informed of everything that happens in Japan.
News, schedules from some countries, videos, highlights, information of absolutely all athletes participating, medallists, and much more. In addition, it is completely free for Android and iOS.
