One-on-one Chat

Need to give a specific customer a more personalized service? Go ahead and chat with him or her in a one-on-one private chat, within your website. You can also make audio and video calls for free!

Multimedia File Sharing

Send brochures, rate sheets, registration forms, and more within the chat. Your audience can also download them. This saves time for the both of you, instead of sending them emails just to close a sale. Now, you can do everything within your chat!

Youtube Playback

Play tutorial videos, product reviews, and influencer vlogs within your chat for everyone to see! Just copy the video link and paste it into the chat. As easy as that!

Admin Moderation

As the website owner, you can enable admin mode. With this, you can mute everyone, ban problematic users, ban profanity, and export the chat transcript. You can also enable the Slow Down mode, which will limit the number of messages a user can send at a time.

Moderated Q&A Sessions

If you want to sream your event on your website, it’s best to use the Moderated Chat. It’s a regular group chat, but with a moderator. He or she can approve or reject the messages before it goes live in the chat. Perfect for hosting Q&A sessions with your event speakers.



Make your conversations more engaging by sending out polls to your audience. Ask them what product they are looking for, what price range they are comfortable with, or what your product can improve on.

Share your availability status

If you are using your website chat as a live agent, it’s good to let your audience know if you are Available, Busy, or Away. However, if your agents are offline, that’s okay, your audience can still access the chat and talk to other visitors there.
