Send Message

Botpress cloud lets you send 8 different types of messages to your users! Content types like text, images, and audio look different depending on which channel you're using (Web Chat, WhatsApp, MS Teams etc).

Your bot's content can be as straightforward or as complex as you want. For instance, a content type could be simple text or an image or a carousel. You can add content by dragging a Content Card over to a Node.

**Content Types** **Description**
Text Text content are regular text messages. Botpress Cloud supports limited markdown formatting for text messages: Use ** two asterisks ** for bold text, * single asterisks * for italic text, and __ double underscores __ for underlined text. Make clickable links like this: `[click me!](`
