Quick replies

If chatbot is waiting for a specific reply from the user, bot designer can use Quick replies. They are predefined, short replies that user can choose from. Quick replies are displayed in a form of buttons. When selected, text from a chosen button is sent to the bot just like a regular message. Using quick replies is optional and it still allows user to type its own reply. Quick replies provide better control over the conversation and can suggest user the possible answers.

How to use it?
