Livechat: Messaging Mode takes over the steering wheel
2 February 2022

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.

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.

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.
