    PROS: Works, free, no major hiccups. CONS: lack of meaningful design customization, cant select where emails go, opaque/confusing language makes using the app more of a chore than it should be. ||||
    Falls short in several respects. The "Brand Customization" section has only two meaningful options (Chat with us/bubble and color of background). No option to shrink the bubble, or change the margins at all. and the way in which its loaded makes workarounds/CSS-based adjustments not work. Potentially Javascript adjustments would work though. Additionally, several times I had to read, and then re-read what the settings would do as several of the options are worded in a kind of opaque language--? Like "First reply" -- which is like automatic responses. And how "Online store chat visibility" differs from "Chat visibility"-- which are (apparently) two separate features. Finally, you cant choose where the emails from messages go-- it, apparently just goes to the shop owner. At a minimum, you should be able to set which staff email it goes it, and ideally, you could set multiple emails-- How did such an option go overlooked?

    I used the app to help with Instagram messages and being able to attach products directly to messages, it works great. The only thing I would like is for it to sync with Instagram so if I respond through Instagram the message is visible within Inbox. Apart from that it is doing what I want for sending messages. Haven’t tried any of the other features as yet but will do
