When it works, it's actually great. My issue is with Chrome compatibility of the "Message Us" feature. For some reason, when a visitor using Chrome clicks on the "Message Us" button, it does not direct to messenger/messenger app & just stops loading. I really hope this gets fixed. 100% of my sales inquiries happen on Messenger, and this would have been a great feature if it actually worked in all scenarios.
