How to customize your chat widget

Once you have created an account on Callbell, you can decide to customize your chat plugin by changing the icon of the chat widget and insert a welcome message to entice visitors to your site to start chatting with you or your company.

You can do all this in just a few clicks and directly from your Callbell account. In addition to integrating WhatsApp, you can also choose to add other direct messaging channels such as Facebook Messenger, Instagram Direct and Telegram.

You can also choose for each channel whether to activate each channel that you will integrate on mobile devices, on desktops and on both. In this way you can select which channels to offer to your visitors based on the type of device they use while they are browsing your website.
