Live Chat FAQ

GoSquared Live Chat is the easiest way to start a conversation with your visitors and users. Just add the GoSquared Assistant to your site to start sending and receiving messages.

What is Assistant?

Assistant is the live chat button that appears on your site and makes it effortless to start converting visitors in to customers. Assistant will encourage visitors to leave their email address and try to automatically engage new visitors if you have any Prompts set up – learn more.

How to turn Live Chat on or off?

Go to Settings > Current Project > Assistant for your project and switch the Enable Assistant toggle on/off.

How do I change the Assistant language?

Use the language dropdown in Settings > Current Project > Assistant. You can also turn on Auto-detect language to have the Assistant display the best language available based on the language of the visitor's browser.

How do I add/invite more live chat agents?

We don't charge 'per-seat', therefore you can add as many live chat agents as you need – for free. You could invite your whole team if you like! Just head to Settings > Current Project > Team Sharing to start adding new team members.

How to change my Live Chat avatar?

Your agent avatar (photo) is the same one that is used for your GoSquared account. Your default photo comes from the Gravatar. If you want to use your own photo, then just click on the avatar next to your name in your Settings > Your Account > Your Details to upload a image.

Check if your GoSquared email address has an Gravatar set up here.

How will my customers be notified when I reply to their messages?

If they have your website open, they'll see a new message bubble appear. If they have your website open in a background tab, we'll play a new message notification sound to prompt them to click back onto your site. If they're not on your site at all (and they have left their email address) we'll send them the message as an email.
