Create An SMS Bot In Zapier

By the end of this tutorial, you will have created an SMS bot in Zapier. The bot will send you an SMS with a weather forecast for the day.

Join 1,000+ readers and get my weekly newsletter. It's a minute read. I share work that I have shipped, work that has piqued my curiosity, and a haiku poem I have written.
