13 July 2018

Highrise For LiveChat Is Getting an Update!

From now on, you can add new contacts to your Highrise account and see if the person chatting with you is already on your list. All of that without leaving your LiveChat app!

Updated Highrise for LiveChat is here

Highrise integration is getting an update!

Highrise for LiveChat: what’s the update about?

We’ve basically revamped the UI of the integration, making the experience of adding new Contacts to Highrise much smoother. From now on, clicking on Add to Highrise button will no longer take you to the completely different screen, outside of LiveChat app.

Highrise for LiveChat: add new contact to Highrise

Instead, we will open a new window straight in your LiveChat, where you’ll be able to add new Contacts to your Highrise account. And that should significantly improve your workflow with the integration.

Highrise for LiveChat: managing your Contacts straight in LiveChat app!

Highrise for LiveChat: so, what else is there?

We’ve not only updated the UI of Highrise integration, but we’ve improved the source code of it as well. This change will ensure the better stability of the module, and it will also provide us with better tools to diagnose your Highrise integration, in case of any issues!

In addition to all that, we’ve got one more treat for you. If you’ll click here, you will see our updated Highrise tutorial, telling you all about the integration itself and guiding you through the installation process. Just in case that you have not yet linked your LiveChat with Highrise :)

Livechat: Get a New Look for Your Chat!
14 June 2018

Get a New Look for Your Chat!

With all the recent changes to Chats, Agents and Settings sections of your LiveChat, it is now time to get a new look for your chat as well. LiveChat introduces a brand new chat window!

New look for your chat

To learn how to turn it on, click here. But, before you do, take a moment to check out what exciting new possibilities are waiting for you!

New Chat Window: what it’s all about?

There are several things that come with the update to your chat window, both in terms of the looks and the technical aspect of it. Let’s go through them one by one.

New Look for your Chat

The first thing that you’ll notice is that the new chat window is now animated! Actions like receiving new messages in a chat, minimizing the chat window or having the window pop-up for your customers are now brushed with a neat animation.


This may seem like a small update but it accomplishes a lot. New animations will make the chat window look much more responsive in the eyes of customers visiting your website, making sure that they’ll be more likely to use a chat during their future visits.

New Feature: mute chat on your website

The Mute button is an entirely new addition to the chat window. Your customers can now use it to disable all sound notifications coming from the chat.


Don’t worry though! The mute button will not limit the core functionality of the chat. Your customers will still be able to continue a conversation with you, no matter what.

Customize your chat window

Along with the new look, we provide you with new ways to modify the chat on your website. From now on, you can change the color of your chat window, straight from LiveChat app. You will also be able to choose which parts of the chat window you’d like to show or hide: transcript, agent rating, and agent avatar – all of that without dabbling in CSS.

We’ve got something for our Marketplace users as well! Soon, you will be able to pick and choose a custom theme for your chat. The Marketplace will offer access to high-quality themes, without having to rely on an in-house developer.

So how to turn it on?

The process of turning on the new chat window is quite simple! Head over to the Customization section of your LiveChat settings and click on the Discover new look button.

New look for your chat: how to get the new look?

You should see a new chat window configurator, together with the preview of your brand new chat widget. To apply changes, click on the Save changes button.

New look for your chat: apply changes to your chat

And that’s it! The new chat window is now visible for you and customers visiting your website!

Oh, and one more thing

The current release of the new chat window is just the beginning. If you are curious on what we have planned for you in the future, both as an end-user or as a developer who’d like to max out the possibilities given by our chat window, click here.

Konrad, our chat window magician, has prepared a dedicated post on our Developers Blog. This post will once again guide you through all the new features available in the chat window, as well as show you what exciting new possibilities are waiting for you on the horizon!

GDPR regulates the processing of personal data in the European Union (its collection, storage, transfer or use). Under the GDPR, the concept of “personal data” is broad and covers any person-related information that can be used to identify them.

We have updated our Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy documents. They are now more customer-friendly and they address the data regulations introduced by the GDPR, so don’t hesitate to check them all out!

General Data Protection Regulation: two-way agreement

We are dedicated to help our customers become GDPR compliant as well. Here is a product guide that will show how to adjust LiveChat for GDPR compliance and that will help you better process and control your customers’ data: Prepare your chat for General Data Protection Regulation.
