The Proxy bot acts as another bot upon user request. The user can instruct the Proxy bot to take the role of another bot. For bot developers in the testing stage, this is a really helpful tool. Without actually publishing the bot on these channels, a developer can test the bot in real time on channels like Slack, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Skype, and others while it is still in the build and test phase of bot development. The development of channel-specific bots now happens faster and more effectively.
Bots created on the Gupshup bot-building platform can only be tested using the Proxy Bot channel.
