Weather Gods Bot

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

Hi All,

Weather Gods now has a weather bot on Facebook messenger. He is currently undergoing training so there will be some teething troubles.

I'm hoping the AppleVis community would be kind enough to take him for a test drive ?

To access the bot:

- Load up Messenger
- Find Weather Gods using search
- Ask away ... you can say stuff like "weather for new york tomorrow?", "will it rain on friday in LA", "do I need an umbrella for chicago today" and many other things :)
- Please like our page - it helps with the rankings on Facebook and hopefully helps users find the Weather Gods app.

I'm looking for some feedback in terms of ease of use, usability etc

Also, the more you ask the more it can learn and be trained.

If all goes well then we will launch on Alexa as well - if people use that platform?

Mods, I apologies if the topic is not appropriate, please feel free to delete or move!

Thanks
Scott

Hi.
I'll have to find your bot and test him! I have the app and love it! I'm unsure about other people on here, but I use and love an Amaznn Echo! I think it'd be nice to see an Amazon Alexa skill! I can tell you for sure that I will enable it! Thank you for sharing this!

JJust tried it out works perfectly well for me. Excellent app too! Thanks.

I second the suggestion for a Weather Gods skill for Amazon Alexa. Also, I'd like to see those same verbal commands you mentioned above to be enabled by Ciri. I understand there's a Ciri API now.

I don't use Facebook Messenger, so I can't take advantage of or help with this bot.

Hi Jeff,

I will definitely be making an Alexa skill in the near future. Unfortunately, Siri is not available to developers for weather commands. Hoping one day Apple will open it up.

Hi,
Where do I go to enter a search term?
Do I act like I’m going to compose a message to one of my Facebook friends?
An Alexa skill would be amazing! A widget for iOS 14 would also be good.

Hi,

Sorry, the bot has been retired - Facebook changed the API and Google stopped the service I was using to run the AI side of the bot.

Hopefully can find something else in the future once the switch to the new weather provider is complete.

I too will take a look at the messenger app. I love the iPhone app, but have chosen to use a different one on my watch as for some reason, the forecast seems to be lost. I’m not sure why a lot of people use Weather Gods, but for me, it’s the cute sounds that all the different gods make. I would certainly probably use an Alexa app, but it would be neat if we could have sounds as well. This is what makes this app stand out from other ones for me.
