Instagram’s mission is to connect people, let users build influence, and create compelling content that’s distinctly theirs. Simplicity, creativity, and fun are at the heart of the platform’s design. The great community of content creators and their followers is what made the platform a worldwide phenomenon.

LiveChat brings chat to the party and lets you communicate with your followers like never before. Thanks to the integration, you can now send replies to DMs and stories from a single app, making it so much easier to manage all your communication channels in one place.

How does it work?Link icon

Instagram direct messages, story mentions, and replies are forwarded to LiveChat and displayed as real-time chats.

You can answer these chats in the LiveChat app, delivering them back to your followers on Instagram.

Seamless, simple, and very easy to set up.
