Chat and messaging

Updated on December 3, 2021

The chat and messaging section outlines the configuration elements that support all of the individual channels supporting conversations between customer service representatives (CSRs), bots, and their external contacts. Engagements in Pega Customer Servicecan be synchronous over chat or asynchronous over social channels, or a combination of both. The Digital Messaging service continues to add new features and channels, and this section describes a new chat channel (Web Messaging). Web Messaging delivers a light configuration experience while supporting many of Pega's Legacy Webchat (formerly known as Pega Chat) features as Legacy Webchat is deprecated.
