    With Slack, this is accomplished with a websocket connection. This allows the bot to passively "listen" to conversations and trigger on certain messages. If that was an option in Teams, it would be pretty trivial to build bots against. Right now there is a fair amount of hoops to jump through to get a bot working. This makes it hard for companies interested in ChatOps to get an effort off the ground.

    In my own project (PoshBot) (https://github.com/poshbotio/PoshBot) there is interest in supporting Teams as a backend. ChatOps bots are most useful when they act as an extension of your team and commonly require access to on-prem resources to do so.
