Meet RapRap, our Rappler bot, at your service 24/7

MANILA, Philippines – Meet RapRap, the newest member of the Rappler Team!

You've heard of chat bots – machines that never tire and never sleep. Join us in our experiment with the Philippines' first news bot. All you have to do is ask!

It's fitting that RapRap is born in #ThinkPH 2016 as Rappler explores the way technology is changing our world. With him, you can explore it yourself. When you call on RapRap, you help teach him how to be human.

Yes, he's a machine, but like all of Rappler, he's got feelings so if you don't quite get what you want, keep trying because he never gives up. (Hint: he loves it when you give him some love too!)

To wake him, open your Facebook Messenger and send him a "Hi" or "Hello!" From there, type any keyword and he'll bring you a list of the hottest stories based on that topic.

If you're looking for the top stories, breaking news, or just a friendly bot to talk to, RapRap is your guy! Always awake, he is eager to help you – whether you're looking for something to read or a virtual kakulitan.

More through Messenger

Ever since Facebook required its users to download Messenger, many of these users have relied on Messenger to communicate with each other. Facebook recently announced that the Messenger app has reached 1 billion monthly active users and RapRap hopes to help all of them out!

With this launch, Rappler hopes to better connect with our 2.7 million Facebook followers, as well as the 53 million Facebook users in the Philippines and our readers from all over the world. That's a lot of new friends for RapRap!

Searching for the stories you want to read is now made much quicker and a lot more personal!
