We have talked a lot about chatbots for customer support in our previous pieces. And a scalable, efficient and cost-effective human+bot hybrid system has always been our philosophy.

In the past few months, we have released a lot of helpful bots to help you accelerate your customer support efforts. In this piece, I am going to walk you through steps to integrate Dialogflow (api.ai) bot into your website. We will be using Kommunicate powered chat plugin for adding to a website that integrates well with Dialogflow.
