All About the Video Widget
howdy chatbot fans and welcome back, let's take a look at our last widget here, The video widget, which is what you use when you want to send videos to your users through chat or simple, just like the image widget, I can upload a video by clicking it and I'm gonna find a video to upload, wait till it uploads. And there's actually a cool story behind this video. This video is a huge, like 50 ft tall billboard in Manhattan, right in the heart of Times Square and this was a client of ours sofa mania. Um big companies selling tons and tons of affordable furniture off their website and they bought billboards in new york city in the heart of Time Square of the Lincoln tunnel by the, by Newark Airport in California and in Chicago and they came to the client, came to me to design the billboards and I was super excited about that and I designed the billboard and in fact, um, the billboard showcases a little child which is my own son um in the billboard, so it was really, really funny, really cu...
te and it's right now as we speak live in Times Square and my parents went to see it yesterday but I digress and no one really cares about that. So let's test this page, see how the video format works and hopefully facebook, the bot will send me my video and there it is and the video auto plays, I could put in some volume if there's volume to the video. Um, there's that billboard in the background and you should just know about the testing of the messenger bot. It might take a couple of times to test the bot and you might have to refresh, it might have to delete the conversation, sort of play with it a little bit, but when it's real live with an individual user who's not being sent multiple tests through facebook messenger, through Mark Monkey, it works every time you don't have to, just because you test this page, You open it up a messenger and it might not load right away. That's not what's happening with users. As long as it as you get it to eventually test and you can see what it looks like. You could be 100% confident that it is working properly on the front end. So that's the video widget. Um, so now we've gone through every available widget, I hope that you have some context, some good ideas, some information as we've been going through the widgets, I'm sure you've been putting together some plans and some ideas for how you would use these widgets in your own bots. Um, and we're going to continue now through the next section of the next lecture is going through all the different other features and elements that are available to you in Mobile monkey. Um, and then we're gonna get into building lots of exciting bots, real bots that are gonna be used in real campaigns for real clients and it's going to be unbelievably exciting and fun and I can't wait to do it with you. And I am excited and appreciative that you can't wait to do it with me. So I'll see you guys in a few seconds in the very next lecture.
