Our plug and play UI supports three different layouts — that are highly customisable — which you can mix and match to suit your needs. For example, users can have access to their inbox, but also chat via a popup widget.
The TalkJS Inbox shows the chat history on the left, selected conversation on the right. It's designed to act as the messaging centre of your app, and it usually lives on its own page.
The Chatbox is really just the right half of the Inbox UI mode. It takes up less space and it's designed to be embedded in your app near an order confirmation, a booking, or a user profile.
You can also show a conversation in a popup widget that only shows up when the user clicks a button somewhere. When shown, the popup is positioned on the bottom right of your page.
The power of TalkJS is that it's highly customisable and user-friendly. We can offer our customers a plug and play solution and give them the possibility to adjust the chat widget to their needs.
Integrate chat with a few lines of code
You just need to tell us which conversation to display, who's chatting, and where to show it on the page. We take care of the rest! And if you want a deeper integration, we have all the APIs you'll need to add functionality or integrate into your own systems.
Tune the look and feel of your chat
You can deeply customise the chat UI with HTML and CSS. With TalkJS Themes you have complete control over the styling, the layout, and document structure of the chat messages and the possibility to show metadata.
After investigating 3 to 4 other chat APIs, I was impressed with how simple integration was. If you are looking for a truly drop in ready in-app chat service, give them a try.
TalkJS has a robust notification system that supports push, email, SMS, and desktop notifications, out-of-the-box.
You can attach custom data to a conversation message. It can be almost anything you make available by using our REST API.
TalkJS has built-in localisation features that allow you to display the text of the interfaces to the user in their own language.
