Improved bot integration flow

We have improved integration flow of your bots and now you can easily enable/disable chatbot human handoff functionality from your dashboard during the integration of new chatbot.

Let’s say, you only use bots to answer queries and don’t use any human agents then you can disable human handoff functionality and only allow bots to handle all queries.

Kommunicate bot integration flow

For time being it can be enabled/disabled only at the time of integrating new bot. But we are working on allowing to make this change in the later stage also.

CSAT Ratings – Beta Release

Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) ratings are the measure of how satisfied the customer is with your support. We have released a BETA version of CSAT Ratings.

We have already implemented on our website and it’s helping us to improve our support based on the feedback.

Drop a note to us to try it out.

Improvements in Conversations List

Now, new conversations will not affect your workflow and you’ll not be automatically scrolled up to the newest conversation. We have added a flashing button to notify you about new incoming conversations and you can click that to navigate to the latest conversations.

Mobile SDKs


We released a new major version of the Kommunicate SDK v2.0.0.

  • Now iOS 10 is the minimum version supported.
  • A lot of under the hood improvements like conversation loading time, new FAQ template and support for links.
  • Now in createConversation API, client ConversationId can be passed. You can use this Id if you want to link a conversation with some event on your side.
  • Added support for Image rich message. Which means an image message can be rendered by passing an image URL and the caption in JSON format.

Android SDK

We released a new version of the Android SDK v1.8.8.

  • Option to pass clientConversationId when creating/launching a conversation.
  • Updated FCM and GMS libraries to latest versions.
  • The minimum SDK version is increased to 16 due to the above google library updates.
  • Disabled away messages for normal groups.
  • Fixed quick reply issue in carousels.
  • Fixed logout issue where logout API used to take a lot of time to process.
  • Fixed an issue where the keyboard did not dismiss on some devices in landscape mode when clicking on the done button while typing a message.
