Social Group Chat

A public chat built for communities and open discussions. The Social Group Chat is an open chat room where anyone can enter the conversation. This is suitable for podcasts, community events, fan clubs, and business websites where you want your customers to be able to share their recommendations with other potential clients.

Private Chat

This is where users can communicate with other participants privately, in a one-on-one conversation. The Private Chat is ideal for networking without the clutter of a group chat. Here, any user can start a private conversation with as many chat users as they want, as long as both of them are online. Consider this as an ideal chat type for dating sites.

Moderated Chat 

This chat type is managed by an administrator, where he or she can perform functions such as screening inbound messages before it goes live, limiting the users, banning problematic users, changing the chat type, exporting transcripts, filtering profanity, and more. The Moderated Chat is useful for online classes, big events, conferences, live streams, and webinars.

Furthermore, your moderator can also mute everyone, all at once, using the admin mode. This minimizes the noise distraction and keeps the focus on your presentation.

Members Only Chat 

Add a sense of security with Member’s Chat. Here, only logged-in members will be able to enter the conversation. This is best used in closed private group chat discussions. Moreover, you can also add a log-in page, so, you can restrict access to your members only. 

Experts Chat 

This can serve as a virtual meeting or consultation room because it is the perfect venue for professionals (such as lawyers, doctors, mentors, healthcare practitioners, and fitness gurus) to have a private, one-on-one conversation with a client. The Expert’s Chat is also useful during online job fairs, where an HR professional can do a job interview with the candidates.
