Message Channels are topic-based conversation threads within the chat screen. It helps you set the right context and expectation with the users and route conversations based on topics to the right team member or support team (e.g. refunds, feedback).


You can pre-configure message channels for your business based on the most common customer queries.


Your visitors can start conversations from specific channels while you can launch contextual campaigns within a particular channel. A channel can be mapped to a group to automatically assign all conversations in that channel to that group. 


Multilingual message channels are channels that will be visible in the browser language chosen by a user.
