Microsoft’s “Project Murphy“, an experimental chatbot that was introduced at this year’s BUILD 2016 conference, allows you to ask it hypothetical “what if” questions and will try its best to present you with a visual representation of its answer using the power of Bing. The service is still new and learning so it sometimes doesn’t have an answer right away, but the more people interact with it, the more creative it will become, gradually improving the results.

Currently, you can use Murphy with apps like Skype, Telegram and Messenger. All you need to do is add him to your contacts in the app and get to asking. But what about those of us who dont use one of those 3 insanely popular messaging apps? On Project Murphy’s official webpage, Microsoft has updated to reflect “coming soon” banners for those of us who use Slack and Kik. There’s no time frame on when we can expect official support, but we’ll definitely keep the article updated as news become available.
