Facebook bot will help you plan your holiday

Skyscanner launched flight search within Facebook Messenger, which means you can have a chat with a bot to find a flight.

Instead of having to go to a travel booking site and choosing various options from checklists and calenders, you'll be able to carry on a relatively normal conversation with a bot.

The bot asks you where you'd like to go, but you can respond with "I don't know," "I'm not sure," or "Anywhere" to get top destinations for travelers who leave from your origin city. Then you say when you want to go and when you want to return.

You'll need to ensure that your requests are specific when it comes to both your destination and how long you want to be away for. The bot will, however, confirm choices frequently.

"We are really focused on this, because we think this is the precursor to voice," Skyscanner's B2B director Filip Filipov told Mashable.
