    Anyone got any experience with them - what is the demand for them and how much cash is to be made from them?

    I used one for adult campaigns. Sometimes sites are very anal about urls, you can't post live links at all or your urls are getting banned over and over, that's when Skype becomes handy. So instead of a landing page, you can use Skype as an interactive lander. If you have a bot which can do bulk actions: accepting/sending contact requests, sending/answering messages, sending welcome messages etc., then you have an autopilot money maker.
    Last time i used the bot, Skype went apeshit about banning accounts, this escalated to the point, where i wasn't able to figure out how to keep the accounts alive, so i stopped using Skype for this purpose. Not sure, what's the case now though.

    In itself a bot doesn't worth much, but if you can place it in a system similarly what i outlined, it can worth a lot.

    I have built one with all the functions you stated + an AI chat function that allows for reasonably coherant responses to messages and conversations with individuals + specific responses for specific messages ect.

    That's a good one then. Not sure about the demand though, as noone else replied besides me. :)

    The thing is that most (younger) people moved onto other instant messaging apps like kik, snapchat, whatsapp etc. Mobile traffic surpasses desktop traffic for some time now. Skype's popularity went down in the last few years, but it still has a 300 million active user base per month, so it's far from dead.
