The MyGov chatbot on WhatsApp has got new features. Initially, the users were allowed to download vaccination certification just by sending a message to the MyGov helpdesk. After this, the MyGov chatbot allows users to book the Covid-19 vaccination slot through WhatsApp simply by sending “Book Slot” to the MyGov WhatsApp number.
According to eMarketer, India has more users than any other country, with more than 390.1 million monthly active users. With this feature, getting vaccination slots and booking a vaccination slot has become easier and convenient. People can also book their slot using CoWin.

It is a testament to the fact that when the right platform and technology are integrated, the results are immensely beneficial. It is enabling digital inclusion in the true sense as most people find the AI-based interface enabled on WhatsApp easier to navigate.
