About this bot

In short: This online tool will monitor RSS feed updates and send Slack, Telegram, Email or Zapier notifications once the feed is updated.

Why use the RSS feed checker tool

Automated RSS monitoring allows you to stay up-to-date on everything that a selected website publishes via RSS channels. This is a perfect way to save your time and to spare yourself the need of checking for updates manually.

If you’re overwhelmed and busy, RSS feed automation is a great way to make sure you never miss important content. You’ll always get a timely RSS alert whenever your favorite website’s content is updated.

How to check RSS feed of a website
