I send a text when I want to query or perform some time-consuming AI tasks. I have two tasks in a series, and just between them I use something like this and send it as a regular message: const pleaseWaitOptions = [ 'Just a few seconds more, please hang in there ๐Ÿ˜Š', 'Give me just a moment, almost there ๐Ÿ˜Š', "A little patience, it won't be long ๐Ÿ˜Š", 'Holding on for a few more seconds, thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š', 'Almost done, just a couple of seconds ๐Ÿ˜Š', 'This will take just a bit, stay with me ๐Ÿ˜Š', "A brief pause, we're nearly there ๐Ÿ˜Š", "Hang tight, we're almost through ๐Ÿ˜Š", 'Just a little longer, I appreciate your patience ๐Ÿ˜Š', 'Bear with me, wrapping up shortly ๐Ÿ˜Š', "We're close, just a few seconds more ๐Ÿ˜Š", "Hang on a sec, we're nearly finished ๐Ÿ˜Š", 'Just rounding the corner, a moment more ๐Ÿ˜Š', "It's just around the bend, hang tight ๐Ÿ˜Š", 'A tiny bit longer, thanks for waiting ๐Ÿ˜Š', "We're on the home stretch, just a bit more ๐Ÿ˜Š", 'Just tying up the loose ends, bear with me ๐Ÿ˜Š', "Finalizing things, it won't take long ๐Ÿ˜Š", 'A few seconds to go, thanks for your patience ๐Ÿ˜Š', 'Nearly there, just a moment ๐Ÿ˜Š', 'Wrapping up, hang on ๐Ÿ˜Š', 'Just finalizing, bear with me for a second ๐Ÿ˜Š', 'Give me a moment to finish up ๐Ÿ˜Š', "We're almost done, just a bit longer ๐Ÿ˜Š", "Stay with me, I'm finishing up now ๐Ÿ˜Š", 'Almost at the finish line, a second more ๐Ÿ˜Š', "I'm wrapping up, it will take a minute ๐Ÿ˜Š", 'Final touches, just a second ๐Ÿ˜Š' ] const randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * pleaseWaitOptions.length) workflow.pleaseWait = pleaseWaitOptions[randomNumber] I know it will not disappear as "typing..." but at least let the user know that something is happening.

Thatโ€™s the typing effect, itโ€™s very important for making the bot look responsive and not stuck when it takes a while to reply
Thereโ€™s no setting for enabling it, itโ€™s up to the Botpress developers to build this

I checked this in Meta office hours, there is nothing

Sad

I would like to know the same thing.
