Would be awesome to have a live group chat widget that would allow users on the site to interact with one-another. (ie. not a 1-to-1 support chat widget, more like an old AIM chat
This would be very helpful for webinars to ad a chat widget next to the video window to increase user engagement.

Thank you for adding this idea!
We are happy to say that we have this widget under consideration and you can find it in our Coming Soon section -
And guys, if you think you have any ideas regarding this functionality, please don’t hesitate to leave your comments. Your feedback is such a huge help for our developers to release the most accurate option
Original comment from Dale Dubilowski transferred from the previous Wishlist portal:
Some additional features:
Seperate channels (one for main chat, one for Q&A, etc.)
Resume autoscroll (for when you scroll back through old messages, it’s easy to return to the real-time feed
The ability to @ mention users (along with a notification system for when you’ve been mentioned or PMd)
Both embeddable and floating chat bar
Social login with ability to click to their social account
We’ve used both Embedded-Chat (
https://www.embedded-chat.com/) and DeadSimpleChat.com ( https://deadsimplechat.com/) for live events in the past - each has some but not all the previously mentioned features.
I think the code to embed a chat where visitors on your site can chat with each other would be great
Very nice idea, thanks a lot for sharing,
I’ve moved your suggestion to the thread with a similar idea, and I’ll make sure to keep you updated here
