This Facebook Bot Will Send You Vinyl Records You Actually Want

We welcome our vinyl-loving robot overlords.

UMG just announced a vinyl delivery service, The Sound Of Vinyl, that allows users to purchase records through Facebook Messenger. Its a bot-based vinyl recommendation service that customizes itself to your tastes based on your likes and dislikes. Want something? Just reply “yes” to one of the bot’s messages to make a purchase. You’ll get your record within five to seven days.
