In a first, famed Pakistani sports channel Geo Super has brought to its valuable viewers, the world's first ever Whatsapp-oriented interactive Chatbot.

For increased viewer participation and satisfaction, the distinct Chatbot offers a wide range of features to its subscribers. In the wake of the on-going Pakistan Super League (PSL), the bot offers match summary alerts sent to all users every 20 minutes.

The bot also allows for subscribers to cast their vote in various match polls where at the end results are shared.

Using the bot, the subscribers also have a chance to get score updates anytime by typing ‘score’ and sending it to the bot. This enables them to receive the latest score updates of the ongoing match.

Subscribers can also type ‘schedule’ and send it to the bot to get details about today’s matches such as the scheduled matches between teams.

By typing ‘points’, the subscribers can use the bot to access latest points status and by typing ‘share’, details regarding how the bot can be shared with friends can be received. 

To access live streaming, subscribers can type 'live' and send it to the bot, whereas typing 'Urdu' gives them update instructions in roman Urdu.

Additionally, the distinct bot is learning fast by the questions asked by subscribers, and will soon be able to answer more specific questions that require details about teams, players and past matches.

Interesting trivia quizzes for the users to test their cricket knowledge and be recognized as a Super Cricket Fan are soon to be introduced.
