How to Insert an App into a Chat
In your reply box, click the App Store icon.
Next, select which app you’d like to send to the visitor. Some apps, like Article Inserter, require additional steps before you send, while others will be inserted upon your click.
Common Use Cases for Sending an App
The App Store has a number of widgets that can be pushed in a live chat or through a chatbot. Some use cases include:
- Gathering visitor details
- Scheduling meetings
- Highlighting relevant content
- Sharing your server status
Using apps during live chat can save your visitors and users time and provide a smoother experience for all by removing clicks.
