Microsoft is reportedly working on its own bot for gaming that players are most likely to welcome with open arms. This is quite an interesting thing, considering that Cortana could have definitely been the perfect assistant for gamers.

Radbot was revealed in a recent trademark application, and it’s targeted for online customer service in the field of online gaming and streaming. It will probably take its place on Microsoft Mixer network, and also give streamers some help.

Gaming bots are rarely successful

Gaming bots are rarely successful, and this might be because they are still nascent. Usually, gamers desire outside distractions that are removed from their experience. On the other hand, Microsoft’s bot could be different.

Microsoft’s Radbot included into Mixer

Microsoft’s bot will probably not interfere with the actual gaming, and instead, it will probably provide users an easy access point to Microsoft customer service. The trademark discussed online streaming, and it looks like Radbot would fit quite nicely into the Mixer network. In case you didn’t know, Mixer is Microsoft’s game-streaming service that evolved from Beam.

The platform features co-streaming, and it’s able to deliver true live streams. Radbot would definitely fit perfectly in Mixer, and this is also its potential destination if it will ever be released.

On the other hand, trademarking something does not mean that it will ever reach the market. But it’s quite possible that something like the Radbot would be folded into another service and as we already said Cortana is such a ready-made solution that would also fit just fine as a Mixer assistant.

We still don’t know what Microsoft finally decides, so we’ll just have to wait a bit longer to find out.
