Last week at Microsoft’s Developer Connect(); // 2016 event, a new public cloud bot service powered by Microsoft Bot Framework is now available on Azure called the Azure Bot Service.

The Azure Bot Service will allow you to:

  • Use the Bot Framework with Azure serverless platform to run and scale your bots while only paying for your usage
  • Get started quickly with out of the box templates for .NET and Node.js. These templates allow you to create a basic bot, a language understanding bot (LUIS), a form bot or a proactive bot:


  • Write code for your bot directly in the browser within Azure. You will also be able to test your bot with the included Web Chat control:


  • Configure conversation channels
  • Take advantage of integrated continuous deployment (DevOps)

Now more than ever it’s so easy to get started with creating your bots and having them run on Azure.
