Session

This component represents a user's active TalkJS session. It handles authenticating your app with TalkJS. You need to ensure that your users can only have a TalkJS session when they have a valid session in your app.

A Session component can be used standalone or with Chatbox as its descendant. If you need to use a Chatbox then it MUST be a descendant of Session. It, however, does not need to be a direct descendant.
