We like to stay fresh!
Livechat: Embrace the night with improved dark mode
22 December 2021

Embrace the night with improved dark mode

We’re proudly introducing an even darker mode in LiveChat. The new version covers all of the chat widget elements, including text areas, targeted messages, forms, rich messages, and buttons.
Improved dark mode in the chat widget Dark mode is a chat window modification that inverts colors, displaying light texts on dark backgrounds. The result is easier on the eyes, especially during nighttime, improving user experience and accessibility of your chat widget.

This update is only a first small step in a big plan to enhance our chat widgets. Expect more news from us soon!

See how to enable dark mode.

Livechat: Queued chats now display visitors’ questions
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.

Livechat: Searching for answers has never been easier
20 October 2021

Searching for answers has never been easier

“Fight for every inch” is one of LiveChat’s core values. We design our products with attention to the smallest detail, and the KnowledgeBase booster update is a great example of that.

The KnowledgeBase booster is a chat widget add-on that allows customers to search through articles in the chat window. We’ve updated the booster usability and look to offer a smoother experience.

The redesigned search bar now requires fewer clicks and is more intuitive, allowing you to access topics faster through a better-looking panel.
