How to add a greeting message to `gradio.Chatbot`

I’d like to add a greeting message after the gradio Chatbot UI shows up, such as “Hi! This is Alice. I’m here to help you with any questions regarding our products.”

Any help?


I think you can seed it with a starting value by setting the default value on the chatbot.

gr.Chatbot(value=[[None, “Hi my name is Alice…”]])
