Improved chat supervision is here

You want all your chats with customers to go as smoothly as possible. Our new chat supervision features get you closer to your customer support reps while they’re having conversations with your customers. Expect an improved workflow and higher customer satisfaction rates!

Communicate with a supervisor during the chat

Private mode allows your customer service rep to respond back to the chat supervisor. With this two-way communication, you will come to a resolution faster, improving your customer’s chat experience and cutting down on the average case handling time.

Take over the chat from your bot

Chat takeover lets you take over the conversation either from a bot or your customer service rep (the latter requiring the user role ‘admin’). Intervene with one click to quickly get the situation under control and support your customers without a need for moving their case from a chat to a ticket.

20 May 2020

Customer Insight – your Shopify store(s) at your fingertips in LiveChat!

Our customers’ success is our success. To help you sell and help customers more effectively, we’ve created the Customer Insight for Shopify, which integrates even more Shopify features into your LiveChat Agent app.

The Customer Insight widget is your Shopify Admin panel right in the chat, so that all the information about your customers and their orders is right there at your fingertips. Without leaving LiveChat, you can see a customer’s cart, send Product Cards view previous orders, as well as manage orders and refunds. This means that when the customer comes to chat you can hit the ground running because you’ll see the full context the moment the chat starts.

Customer Insight is available to install from the Shopify App Store.

Livechat: Greetings are now easier to set up and analyze
7 April 2020

Greetings are now easier to set up and analyze

While we develop new features, some that have been out for a while eventually need a tweak or two, or a more modern look. That’s what we recently did with chat greetings.

Greetings have a refreshed look, but more importantly, we’ve added a few new bells and whistles. Use the long-awaited ‘OR’ condition while creating new greetings, check the performance of your greetings at a glance, and quickly jump to reports to dig deeper and compare greetings over time.

We’re not done yet. There’s more to come.

Livechat: Chat widget got even better
7 April 2020

Chat widget got even better

More improvements for greater user experience!

The new Top bar

Your customers can now see important updates in the Top bar. It will show their position in the queue and inform them when an agent is assigned. The Agent’s bar you’re familiar with will be there as soon as an agent replies.

Top bar adjusts to the user’s activity and hides when not needed. The status is then shown in the widget’s Title bar thanks to new icons and animations! Customers will stay on top of all the essential information while scrolling through the chat history. They can always click on the Title bar to see the full message again.

Top bar improvements

A new look for buttons in rich messages

Buttons in rich messages are now adjusted to your chat widget’s color theme. An improved design made them more visible and more inviting to click. Soon we will enable even more personalization of the buttons. Stay tuned!

Livechat: We’re on now!
25 March 2020

We’re on now!

We’ve migrated LiveChat’s website to a new domain name: This is a historic event for us and our whole team has been waiting for this moment for such a long time!

In the next couple of months, we’re going to migrate all of our services to, including the LiveChat Agent App. We’ll let you know about the specific timeline and all the other details in advance.

Yesterday’s changes shouldn’t affect most of our customers. However, if you’re experiencing any issues, please consider taking these actions:

👉 Make sure that the domain name is whitelisted or added to your trusted domains. Please don’t remove from your whitelist, as the Agent App continues to utilize for now.

👉 If you can’t log in to the LiveChat desktop app, please make sure you are using the latest version.

If you have any questions, we’re here to assist you.
