Bots from brands are now accessible to Facebook Messenger users via its Discover tab, which was introduced at F8 in April and is now available to all U.S. users.

The Discover tab enables Messenger users to search for bots, nearby places and businesses, and a Facebook spokesperson said in an email to Social Pro Daily:

Right from the home screen, people can find their recently used bots, popular experiences and a free-form search field. Within Discover, people can browse a variety of experiences, including what’s popular, featured or nearby. Messenger includes a broad set of categories like news, entertainment, finance and others to help people find an experience matching the category they’re looking for.
