There are lot of clients featuring XEP-0050, but it's often hidden in
discovery menu, not super intuitive.
XEP-0050 is one of my favorite XEPs, simple, generic, and powerful, with
structured data thanks to data forms, nothing to do with a IRC-style command.
If you want to do text commands, nothing prevent you to interpret sequence of
characters, any bot can do it, and it will work everywhere. But that's a poor
man solution in comparison to XEP-0050
