The evolution of Yala & why we changed our name

The evolution of Yala & why we changed our name

Since the beginning, Yala has been on a mission to make social media marketing easier and better. We’re pursuing that goal and with you in mind, we’re evolving. So, our name needs to too. We’re no longer, Yalabot. Meet, Yala Social!

Why the name change?

Yala started as a chatbot, hence the name, Yalabot. It scheduled social posts in a smarter and smoother way via Slack and Facebook Messenger and while this initiative was successful, we couldn’t stop there. We listened to our customers and saw what the world needed, so Yala was reborn online. We started adding features to our software, like graphic design abilities and in late 2018, Yala released video ads.

Since Yala has shifted from being a chatbot to a full-suite social media marketing and video ad software, we’re dropping the “bot” and are now “Yala Social.”

What’s happening to Yalabot?

If you’re using Yalabot on Slack or Facebook Messenger, don’t worry. Your favorite social media scheduling chatbot isn’t going anywhere. However, this chatbot is no longer steering our future. All future updates and features will be released on Yala Social, the online app.


We invite all our Yalabot users to please try our online platform. Yala’s online version offers the same, smart scheduling AI plus many other marketing features. Yala Social has already won two awards! We think it’s even better, and we hope you do too.
