Additionally, Team, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus plan users can now increase their security by using 2-step Verification. It changes the way you log in to LiveChat a bit: instead of simply providing your username and password, you need to log in with your Google Account and provide a security code that you receive via a text message.

Rating comments

Visitors can now provide short comments when they rate chat agents. The comments will allow you to identify potential problems when the rating is negative and show you the actions that should be encouraged when the rating is positive.

The ratings are displayed in the chat window and can be reviewed in the Archives. You can use three new filters (Commented, Commented bad and Commented good) to reach chats with commented ratings more easily.

Assigning tickets to groups

You can now select entire groups when choosing a ticket assignee. This way, you and your agents don't have to check if a particular agent is a member of the group you want to select.

Separate chat sessions for multiple websites

If you are offering LiveChat on multiple websites, you can now make sure that customers who visits several of your pages will get a separate chat on each of those sites.

This is especially useful if you have several websites offering similar products as clients might enter a few of them and you should offer separate chat experience on each of those sites.
