Tailor your website’s chat widget with the new live editor

Online shopping is good and all, but there really is no better way to get the perfect fit than by trying new things directly. We totally get it, and our live editor is proof of that.

Thanks to the configurator, you can accurately match the look and position of your chat window with your site, creating a seamless “built-in” look. That’s a quality of life improvement if we ever saw one!

What you get with the live editor:
  • Full-size chat preview directly on your website
  • Adjustable on-site appearance, including theme, colors, position, and offsets
  • Color picker — easily import your website’s background color into the chat widget
  • Configuration preview without the need to save the settings
  • Dark mode switch, along with a preview of the new look

Messaging Mode takes over the steering wheel

Availability can be a real struggle nowadays. We are often expected to give our full attention to so many things at the same time. And we still need to sleep now and then.

No worries, LiveChat’s got you covered! Messaging Mode is all you need to maintain engaging support during offline hours.

Messaging Mode is a feature that allows asynchronous communication with your visitors. Basically, they can send you a message even if you’re not available, and you can send a reply while they’re away from their desks. The chat history is loaded for both recipients whenever they go back to the conversation. Just like social messaging!

What you get with Messaging Mode:
  • Full time chat availability. Enable customers to start a chat and reply to messages whenever they want.
  • Connections that last. Manage your chats with customers by replying to conversations anytime.
  • Better insight on your chat traffic with heatmap report, which can now track data from chats started during offline hours.
  • Offline and online conversations combined into single chat history.
  • Natural customer experience. Business chats that perform just like social messaging.
  • More leads captured when you’re offline.

20 December 2021

Queued chats now display visitors’ questions

With our newest update, agents no longer have to guess queued visitors’ queries before choosing to chat with them.

Visitors can type their first message while waiting in the queue, and agents can immediately see it in the LiveChat app. Prioritizing pending chats got much easier, and the user experience that much better.

What you get with the queue update:
  • Much better experience for visitors as they no longer need to wait in a queue to state their query.
  • Interactive queues appear more attractive to visitors, increasing the number of chats you get.
  • Shorter chatting time. Agents will be able to prepare for visitors’ cases before picking them up from a queue.
  • Agents can quickly spot urgent issues, giving them more control over the queue.
  • Better engagement reduces the chance of customers leaving your queue. Visitors who stated their query will more likely stay on the line to get it resolved.

Find out more about the queue in our Help Center.
