What is the discover tab?

Messenger has a discover tab, allowing members of the public to discover new bots to engage with.

How do I submit to the discover tab?

To apply to have your bot included in Discover, have your Page admin complete the Discover submission form.

You can also navigate to this via your Facebook page settings:

  1. Click Settings at the top of your page
  2. Click Messenger Platform in the left column

From here, you can choose the categories where your bot appears, customize how it’s described in search results, and decide which languages you want to support. This information will be used to enhance your bot description in Discover and will also help improve its discoverability.

Please note that each submission must be approved in order to be included in Discover, so be sure to properly describe and categorize your bot when completing the form. You can revisit the form in Page Settings at any time if you need to update your bot information.

For Pages that are not associated with a bot, Facebook use existing categorization and Page meta data to identify the appropriate Discover category. You can opt-out of being included in the Discover through Pages Settings.
