About web messaging

Genesys Cloud web messaging provides customers with an enhanced experience when they visit your website. Unlike web chat, which provides short-lived, standalone chats, web messaging enables a visitor to enter your site, converse with a bot or agent, and return later to pick up the conversation. With Predictive Engagement, agents can view the entire customer journey as part of the web messaging interaction. Web messaging shares many of the same features and capabilities as the other Genesys Cloud messaging channels that use ACD messaging to enable agents to respond to customer interactions.

Configure Messenger

Administrators perform these tasks to configure Messenger, the predefined message window, and launcher button which customers use to interact with bots and agents.

Authenticated web messaging

Administrators can require customers to authenticate with your website before starting or resuming a web messaging session. Optionally, personalize the customer’s experience with authenticated users’ attributes in Architect flows.
