I think that effective approach in this context should create an eco-system within the team where they can openly collaborate and share issues to solve them quickly. In reality, these meetings were often driven away from a sprint goal and didn't add much value to the team. Bots simplified this communication and helped the team to start think about standups as a tool for their collaboration. I think self-organization of a team is one of the goals of standups, which format to use for them is a Scrum master decision.
