We recently launched a Telegram bot to notify you of all trade and successful waiver requests in your leagues.
If you don't know what Telegram is, it's a Whatsapp competitor. It looks pretty much the same as Whatsapp, but is always a step ahead. If you want to know what Whatsapp will look in a year from now, have a look at Telegram.
Some of the cool features Telegram has been providing for a while already are: encrypted messages for all conversations, bots, an app for every platform including web, Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, etc. self-destructing messages, and more.
What we really like about Telegram is the fact that our bot can be part of your conversations. To get notified about the latest happenings in your draft league you can either subscribe to messages from @DraftRobot, or add @DraftRobot to your group chat.
If you play the MLS game you can get notifications from @mls_bot.
Here's what it looks like:
How do I get it working?
1) Download the Telegram app (https://telegram.org/).
2) Start a chat with @DraftRobot or @mls_bot (or add the bot to a group chat).
3) Send the bot the message:
You can find your league id on the league settings page. The message you send will look something like:
/subscribe a12sdasd. You should get a response from Draft Bot saying that you've subscribed to the league.
If you ever want to unsubscribe from messages just send a
/unsubscribe message or delete your conversation with the bot.
This is great for group chats and we'll be adding more features to the bot in the future. You'll be able to get points updates, teams and even be able to respond to trade offers from with in chat.
