GameOn Technology and the Just For Laughs Group are breaking away from the standard format of a chatbot by focusing on the voice matching the comedic tone of ‘Just For Laughs’ brand. This is accomplished by leveraging ChatOS™, GameOn’s proprietary end-to-end development and integration platform designed specifically for the future of messaging and voice applications. The Just For Laughs chat experience lets fans know upfront they are speaking with an AI and aims to bring the same entertainment a user would expect from any of Just For Laughs’ other channels.
GameOn has been known for its expansive work in the sports arena with heavy weights like Mike Tyson, The NHL, PGA TOUR and NBA all leveraging GameOn’s technology for their chat experiences. Just For Laughs marks GameOn’s further move into the entertainment space and additionally demonstrates the potential for chat in a variety of sectors.
