Our leading mobile sports app theScore has been serving millions of fans everywhere with real-time scores, stats and breaking news since 2007. Now, that same fast and customizable experience lands on Facebook Messenger with the launch of theScore bot.
As announced today, sports fans on Messenger will be able to tell theScore bot exactly what teams they care about and receive automated updates while interacting with it in a completely intuitive way.
Using theScore bot on Facebook Messenger is simple.
- Get started by sending theScore bot a message from our Facebook page or via this link on your mobile device or by simply searching for ‘theScore’ within Messenger.
- theScore bot will then ask you what teams you want to receive updates on.
- Simply respond to theScore bot as if you were sending a message back to a friend, telling it which teams you want to follow (at launch, theScore bot covers NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and most major soccer leagues. Support for more leagues and competitions will follow.)
- theScore bot will then send you updates including game start, live scoring plays, the final score of a game and also any breaking news related to the team being followed.
- You can also modify the alerts you want to receive at any time by sending the message ‘Settings’ to theScore bot.
We’re excited to bring theScore to a brand new platform, creating a way for sports fans to interact with us in a totally fresh and natural way. Try it for yourself – and let us know what you think via: [email protected]
