The process of monetizing Facebook Messenger took a big step forward Thursday with the launch of version 2.1 of Messenger Platform.

The social network introduced Messenger Platform at its F8 developers’ conference in March 2015, and at the next F8, in April 2016, bots came into play.

Messenger Platform 2.0 debuted at this year’s F8, in April.

Updates that will impact users in Messenger Platform 2.1 include a seamless flow for payments within the application, five new call-to-action buttons and desktop support for the extensions software-development kit.
