When I am off line, I could not receive messages that my customers send via chat widget, because all messages go to my collaborator's email, my email address set in the contact information does not work, I hire him to custom my store but now he is the one seeing the messages send from my customer when I off line, that is ridiculous.

Thank you for reaching out and for letting us know that you're having this problem. It sounds like there may be an issue with your staff permissions, which will have an effect on who receives notifications from the Shopify Inbox app. I would recommend reaching out to our support team directly so we can authenticate you on the store and take a closer look at this for you: -Victor, Shopify Support


I like the application. Very intuitive and the ability to reply quickly from the mobile app is great. I wish it was possible to show the staff avatar in Shopify Inbox on the front end. Right now, when a staff is answering, only the message is showing, not his name, neither his avatar.

I'm glad to hear that you've found the app intuitive to use and helpful for your business! I'll be sure to pass on your comments regarding the staff avatars to our app development team as I can see why making the changes you've suggested would be helpful. Thank you for getting in touch. -Victor, Shopify Support


There are a lot of negative reviews about this app, but I've been using it for a couple of years and really like it. It has improved a lot over that period. It used to be that messages could get lost, but that's not the case anymore. You can see if a customer is still online and if they're not the replies are sent by email. IOS users get the replies via Apple Chat (if you set that up). Ideally, I'd like the option to be able to hide the icon and instead link to chat, e.g. from a contact-us page or in a menu, but otherwise it works for us. Great app for no additional cost.

I can appreciate your frustration with this issue and thank you for reaching out about it here. Our development team is aware of the issue and has been working on implementing a fix from our end. We believe the issue should resolve itself before long, but in the meantime, you can ask Google to recrawl your site to help speed this process up: -Victor, Shopify Support

The chat is injecting a (1) that affects the SEO on the Google Search Results. Update sitemap does not solve the problem either. Had to uninstall the app just beacuse of this very reason. If you (shopify dev-team) are going to make apps at all, please make some dedication and check the other alternatives and beta-test before release. Please make the necessary tweaks, bugfix and fix all these issues and the app will have great potential im sure! Got this message from the Shopify Support regarding this matter: "The matter that you mentioned is a known limitation and is coming from Google reading the site title after the inbox app sends the first message. What you can do to fix this is resubmit your sitemap to Google and the title will be updated. To do this, please review and follow the Shopify Help Document on Finding and Submitting your Sitemap. Once you have the sitemap, you can head over to Google search console, login, and resubmit this to them. It will ask Google to re-scan your site and this title error on Google will disappear once they have done this." This is only a fix short-term, the only long-term fix is for the dev-team to fix this issue and then make an app-update. Other chat-apps does not experiance this, so it should be an easy fix for the dev-team. I also have some wishes of functions to the Dev-team: - The function to see what the customer is typing before its sent.
- See what pages, ip adress, last url visited, live-url, and country etc the user is typing from.
- Add more customization to the chat in terms of how it looks, colours, branding, etc.
- Function to have the chat appear in different ways in mobile and desktop.
- Function to have the chat only appear on example the /contact page only. And not on all pages as of today.
- At the end of the chat, enable the function for the visitor to rate the conversation with 0 - 5 stars. Please look at your competitors and make the features even better than them, if anyone you have the capacity to do it, im sure!

Hey, there. Thank you for reaching out about this. Our developers have deployed a fix to resolve this issue. However, it could take some time for Google to recrawl your page in order to reflect the changes. If you'd like to request Google to recrawl your page manually, you can follow the steps here: Cheers! -Elias, Shopify Support


I would give 5 starts but there is a major issue with with Google robots and SERPS. The app is injecting a "(1)" at the beginning of the page tiles to signify the number of messages. This shows up on search engine results pages. Resubmitting the sitemap doesn't fix the issue. Either remove that injection or code it in a way so it is invisible to Google robots. Thank you!

Like reviews before, the (1) impacts SEO greatly. This plugin needs a feature to remove this or needs to stop adding a (1) to your page's title. One star until its changed as its a big issue :/

Useful app but we have a big problem with it. It adds (1) to the page titles. And it affects google search results. The number count is caused by the notification count for the Chat feature on storefronts being added to the metadata of the store. This information is being picked up by search engine bots which then update the search result titles. We need a decent shopify help!
