Developed in Taipei and formally launched yesterday, TaxiGo is a ride-hailing app that works on Facebook and Line, too, with help from a chatbot.

Users can “converse” with the app in Chinese, English or Japanese by typing in an address and ordering a cab, according to the developers TMS Group (TMS全鋒事業) and Leopard Mobile (雪豹科技).
