Direct chat link – now shorter and way more flexible!

Social Media are becoming more and more important in Customer Service. One of the reasons for that is the ability to send quick, short and straightforward messages via social channels. With that in mind, we have decided to make our Direct Chat Link shorter, so that you can blend it in with your Tweets or Facebook posts.

From now on, when you see your customers in need, simply grab the shorter direct chat link and post it on your Twitter or Facebook. Simple “Have a problem? Let’s chat now! “ can work miracles!

Zendesk integration tweak – now a bit faster and more convenient

LiveChat is like wine – it only gets better with time. That’s thanks to our wise developers, who are constantly looking for ways to make LiveChat better for everyone. And this small (but mighty) update to our Zendesk integration does exactly that.

Updated Zendesk integration

Our previous Zendesk integration was a bit of a bother asking for credentials before letting you create a ticket. We took the pain and keystrokes out of the process. You can now authenticate your Zendesk account with a single click and go directly to the task. Ta-da!

We hope you’ll find the change helpful. As always, any comments or feedback are welcome.

Livechat: Are you a keyboard octopus?

Are you a keyboard octopus?

Typing speed matters when supporting customers via chat. Just think of the time you could save if you improved your speed even by a few words per minute.

To help you out, we’ve created a fun Typing Speed Test.


The test takes 60 seconds. It measures how many words per minute [WPM] you can write and how accurate you are in recreating the text.

Don’t worry if you don’t get the best score at first. Just as with any skill, mastery comes with practice. It won’t be overnight, but practicing each day will steadily transform you into a typing octopus. So, the next time you have a minute to spare, why not invest it in improving your productivity?

Protip: When you type, try not to look at the keyboard as every peek will distract your attention and eventually slow you down.

Livechat: New report to help improve your greetings
18 May 2016

New report to help improve your greetings

A few weeks ago, we released the engagement report. Despite all the positive feedback, we knew there was still more to be done. The engagement report only explained half of the puzzle – how your chats start. It was missing the juicy part about greetings and their effectiveness.

Today, we’re bridging this gap with data to help you better understand your customers and your chat performance.

LiveChat greetings report

Greetings conversion, is an easy to understand report to back up what you think does or does not work when it comes to your greetings. This kind of insight is vital if you A/B test your greetings to see which work better.

For example, if you notice your 20-second greeting gets ignored, you can try delaying it or changing its wording. Then see which one converts better and use this knowledge to engage more customers. Easy!

Let us know what you think about the new report in the comments below. Or email us at

21 April 2016

Updated integration with Zapier

Wanna pass data from LiveChat to 3rd party app? Well, good news – you can do that thanks to Zapier integration.

Zapier offers a rich database of the apps that can be integrated with LiveChat.

Zapier - LiveChat logos

The idea is very simple: use one of the five triggers (as a finished chat or a new ticket) and decide which data about your visitor or chat will be passed to your CRM, to-do list or wherever else you wish!

With such an automation set, there’s no need to transfer the data manually and that will save you and your team plenty of time.

What’s new:

We added two more events that you can use as triggers: chat changed and ticket created.
You can also save additional information about your chat visitors: visitor’s location, timezone, language and the page on which the chat started.

Feel free to test it!

Livechat: Suggesting tags as you chat
7 April 2016

Suggesting tags as you chat

Using multiple tags (if you’re not tagging chats yet, then you really should), it can be hard to remember all of them. Sure, you can search the tag list, but it adds precious seconds to each chat and seconds add up to minutes and minutes… well you know how the story ends.

Today’s update fights this daily hassle by making chat tagging almost automatic. Now, whenever you have a chat, LiveChat will help you by suggesting a tag to be used.

suggesting tags during chat

The feature works out of the box, but since it learns from your past tagging, you’ll need a history of at least 100 tagged chats to see your first suggestions. So you’d better get your fingers busy. Besides, the more you tag, the more accurate suggestions you will get.

Enjoy and let us know how it goes at
