When Google says their chat app will have intelligent bots, I assume that means they're going to compete with Slack bots. Here's a radical idea -- how about if they make their bots compatible with Slack bots? That way developers can create bots for both platforms at the same time.
That would be the amazing way to do it. Creating yet another way to do bots would be the predictable tired old computer industry way to do it.
Come on Google, be amazing!
