With chatbots, just like youtube forcing google+, the app will give the impression that a lot of people are using it..
Just what Google needs in the messaging department - more confusion of what app to use - not!
I use Hangouts regularly - it works just fine. Why don't they just concentrate their efforts on refining their existing software instead of removing features (sms recently) & creating other alternatives. It's confusing enough!
I hate to admit this, but they need a large dose of 'Steve Jobs mentality' in the messaging department.

So the chatbots will spam people with product placements and adverts disguised as "messages"? No thanks.
Current software situation remind me Oprah Winfrey Show.
""You got your own payment system? EVERYONE GET THEIR OWN PAYMENT SYSTEM!""
And the same with social sites/chats:
"You got chat app? EVERYONE GONNA HAVE THEIR OWN CHAT APP!"
Like google didnt learn from google+ that people even forced, not gonna use something that they already have...
