Skype conversational innovation with bots continues, with new partners introduced Tuesday, including Expedia.com, UPS and online event-ticketing giant StubHub.

Expedia.com is coming soon to all Skype platforms. With the Expedia bot, you can easily search for hotels, quickly book and manage reservations, and confirm or cancel hotels and flights. And if you have a question the bot can’t answer, Expedia is proud to be one of the first bots that allows calling directly to Expedia, free of charge.

These partnerships with Microsoft bring together artificial intelligence (AI) and conversational computing, which were highlighted Tuesday at a Microsoft AI event in San Francisco.
