Microsoft has made a number of important announcements throughout the first two days of the Microsoft Build Conference including the launch of the Microsoft Bot Framework (preview), the launch of Microsoft Cognitive Services (preview), and the addition of Cortana and chatbots to Skype.
TiKL, maker of mobile apps Talkray and Touch to Talk, has announced the Talkray API that allows developers to integrate Talkray functionality with third party apps and platforms. The Talkray API enables one on one or group chat, group calls, push notifications, file transfer, and more in a cloud based platform. Although the API can integrate with a wide variety of apps, TiKL expects the largest group of adopters to come from the gaming industry. Accordingly, the API was announced at this year's Game Developers Conference.
