How LiveChat’s Apple Business Chat Integration Works
To start an Apple Business Chat conversation, customers can tap the Messages icon on a company’s website or in their iOS app.
If they choose the message, a conversation with the company’s agents will open instantly in the Messages app, and users can take their time responding when it’s convenient.
Apple Business Chat is now available in beta for users and businesses worldwide, and is built into iOS 11.3 or later. The Chat Suggest new chat suggestions feature is available on iPhone running with iOS 13 and higher.
The LiveChat’s messaging platform routes messages sent by Business Chat users to a company’s live agent consoles.
The native LiveChat Platform APIs drive the integration and it’s offered to businesses that are developing their customer service teams with an omnichannel communication mindset.
The new feature is now available in the LiveChat Marketplace.
