Power Virtual Agents integration with Bot Framework Composer is available in Public Preview

Building on our momentum from Microsoft Ignite, today we are pleased to announce the Public Preview of Power Virtual Agents integration with Microsoft Bot Framework Composer. Bot makers will now be able to use Bot Framework Composer to create custom content and add it to Power Virtual Agents.

Custom bot content created in Bot Framework Composer is directly embeddable and executable from inside Power Virtual Agents. This new feature provides a simpler way to extend your bots that does not require additional Azure hosting, deployment or billing complexities.

Power Virtual Agents is Microsoft’s intuitive, graphical, fully-hosted chatbot platform that empowers users to easily create and maintain chatbots. As part of Microsoft’s low-code Power Platform, Power Virtual Agents already comes with hundreds of pre-built Power Automate connectors to common back-end systems, enabling quick integrations. And, of course, you can also easily call custom APIs and actions as well.

Now, Power Virtual Agents and Microsoft Bot Framework Composer can also work seamlessly together. Customers have access to an intuitive SaaS bot building experience in Power Virtual Agents, and can easily enhance their bots with Bot Framework custom content when needed. The result: a bot building experience that truly empowers everyone – from subject matter experts to professional developers – to collaboratively build intelligent, powerful bots.
