Receive messages from your Facebook pages right in the LiveChat app. Keep all your communication in one place, to make your team more effective and provide better customer support.
Other benefits of our integration with Facebook Messenger:
- Connect multiple Facebook pages to your LiveChat account—if you run a couple of Facebook pages, you might want to link all of them with one LiveChat account. To make sure that you always know which fan page your messages are coming from, you can assign each page to a specific group.
- Send rich messages to your fans—use cards, product carousels, quick replies and suggested responses thanks to our integration with ChatBot. Rich messages are displayed both in Facebook Messenger and the LiveChat app.

It can sometimes happen that despite installing the integration with Facebook Messenger, the messages still don’t come through to LiveChat. This may be due to the fact, that LiveChat has to be set as the primary receiver in the handover protocol on Facebook. The primary receiver is the app that handles all incoming messages when two different apps are integrated with a Facebook page. This section is a step by step guide on how to check it and set it up.
- Log into your Facebook Business page.
- Scroll down the menu on the left and go to Settings.
- In the Page settings menu scroll down and click on Advanced messaging.
- In Advanced messaging settings scroll down to Handover protocol and click on Configure.
- In the pop-up, set the Primary recipient for the handover protocol. Pick LiveChat from the drop-down menu.
Now that LiveChat is set as your primary receiver, the messages from Facebook Messenger should appear in the LiveChat Agent App.
