WhatsApp always seems to come late to the game but it never matters. Given its gigantic user base it can allow itself the luxury of adding features long after its indirect competitors like Telegram or Facebook Messenger have done so. Bot is one of those things. While the competition has already hyper-integrated this type of features, it still hasn’t officially arrived to WhatsApp, and the few third-party options require you to add some frankly shady phone numbers. qeuBot goes another direction, offering a series of useful features on WhatsApp just by installing a small app. And best of all, it’s legal, free, and requires neither root permissions nor complicated setup processes.
The sole requirement when it comes to using qeuBot’s features is allow the app’s access permissions, which the app itself will advise you of the first time you open it. That done, you can go to any group or individual chat on WhatsApp and use the commands, of which there are a good few:
- Search Wikipedia: [search @wiki] Displays the body of a Wikipedia entry if the search parameter coincides with one.
- Calculator: [operation @calc] Displays the result of the introduced operation, accepting all sorts of basic operations.
- News: [operation @news] Displays a news feed of current events related with the search term. (Paid feature.)
- IMDb: [movie @imdb] Displays a full entry with information about the film in question.
- Animated GIFs: [search @gif] Displays a series of search results for animated GIFs through Giphy and lets you insert them directly into chats. (Paid feature.)
- Images: [search @pic] Displays the main search results of the term through Bing Images.
- Weather: [place @weather] Shows meteorological info for the place in question. Can also display a forecast for the next few days by typing [place @forecast]
- Horoscope: [Zodiac sign @horoscope] Displays that day’s horoscope for the sign in question.
qeuBot can be downloaded and used completely free, although the options to search news and animated GIFs are relegated to the paid version, which in any case you can get from the app itself for €/$1.69, which is basically nothing.
