The Airtel Care Bot will present several options to the user including account information, package detail, recharge information, service request, and set-top box ugrade among others. Additionally, users can check their balance info, available recharge offers, and top-up their account right from WhatsApp.

From the package information option, Airtel offers services like adding a channel, modifying the existing pack, and subscribing to a value added service. If you opt for adding a channel, the bot will present you with the list of channel best suited for you pack. Users simply need to reply with the number corresponding to their desired channel and make payment through a clickable payment gateway link.
