    Today messages can be sent direct to apps via /cmd in that the app can then converse with the user privately.

    I believe above request if for individuals being able to send a direct message to an app from any space without having to first install the app in such space?

    So there are 3 parts I think that are not here today:

    1. I want to enable/install the app just once and have it always be ready to assist.
    2. I want to call out the app in multiple ways and not just via a specific /cmd. Example, the app should be cognitively understanding anything I type or see.
    3. I want to converse with the app as a bot perhaps organized with other bots in the same way DM view organizes all my DMs and mentions view organizes all the messages in which I am mentioned.

    It seems the OP was looking for #3 in your list, Miguel.  I agree that it would be handy to have various bots/apps available for direct messaging.

    Apps can act as a user. So you should be able to register a user account for the app.

    Hi Arnd, not really. Right now, An app (acting as a user) can not add an app to a space, its an issue opened and hoping we can fix it quickly.

    Barbaros,

    What update are you looking for?  Adding an app programmatically as David describes was already addressed.

    Having a conversation with an app in a space has been possible since the very beginning.

    Having spaces that only have a single app identified as separate from other spaces and displayed differently in the Workspace UI is a separate topic.

    Hi Miguel,

    i would like to allow users to talk to an app without the need of first creating a space and than adding the app (i.e. bot) to that space.

    Simply put; i am looking for the same feature offered by https://core.telegram.org/bots/api

    Thank you.

    PS: Also, as far as I know there are two ways to "publish" an app as in make the use interact with the app;

    1) You publish the app so that the app would be available to everyone. You would than need to add some sort of authentication if you want to limit the access. Alternatively you can configure the app to answer only to a list of users as you (the app) can retrieve the information of the user it is talking to.

    2) You do not publish the app and make it accessible by everyone. Instead you create separate "spaces" with the app added to each space and than you invite users to those spaces. This would however mean an initial overhead as you need to create all those spaces..

    3) -> What I want & Arnd sort of mentioned <- Just letting the user talk to the app as if the app is another user without all the hassle of creating a space and adding app to the space. Also some sort of authentication would be a nice-to-have for apps e.g. connected to some databases.

    Thanks for the input Barbaros.  This is specifically what you are asking if I understand you correctly: https://core.telegram.org/bots/inline

    We don't currently support this functionality, but will take into consideration.  If there is a business opportunity that this functionality will help close on, please let us know so we can prioritize appropriately.
