Is it possible to make the bot talk first?

I just don't want to force the user to say anything. Can the bot automatically say the greeting topic on start?

Currently the auto-triggered welcome message is not enabled for web canvas (It is enabled in Teams and Facebook Channel). To be able to trigger the welcome message in web canvas, a hidden event activity need to be sent to the bot by the canvas.  The activity type="event" and name="startConversation".

 

There are some sample code on  how to implement in canvas:
