A message is a structured unit of data within a chat system that encapsulates the content sent from one participant to another.

As an object within a chat API for bots, the Message object allows bots to interpret and handle the content of communications sent over these systems. This object typically includes critical details such as the sender's identity, the message content, the timestamp of when the message was sent, and potentially the type of message (text, image, etc.). Through the Message object, bots can process and respond to incoming messages, log historical data, and integrate with other data systems for enhanced functionality.
