Microsoft Teams get two new bots in channels: Statsbot and Growbot.

Statsbot does just what you would think it does, collects various insights and information conveniently for your chat to request.

Growbot addition is more socially focused, adding rewards to your team’s chat.

While all of the bots previously developed for Microsoft Teams had been only allowed in 1-on-1 conversations, now bots can be used in Teams channels for everyone to interact with.

There will be over 150 partners once Teams is generally available and probably plenty more to come even after that. The use of Microsoft Bot Framework has the potential to make the digital workplace even more efficient than before.
