All they'll need to do is start walking, and walking one whole heck of a lot.

Snapchat has revealed a new archive feature for its immensely popular app today, introducing us to Memories.

Facebook Messenger rolls out improvements to chat bots

Facebook Messenger rolls out improvements to chat bots

Back in April, Facebook announced it was opening up its Messenger service with an API and tools to create chat bots. While it's still not clear just how useful mobile users are finding these bots, it's obvious that developers think they are loved — or at least love making them — as there's now over 11,000 bots available on the platform. With that much saturation, Facebook needs to be on the ball about making sure bots are organized and easy to use. Thankfully an update with that in mind has been released.
