❓ What about the Chat application?

The Chat chatbox will soon be discontinued and will no longer allow you to receive messages from your customers. However, the Chat app will remain available for a few months to give you access to your past chats if needed. This period allows you to take time to get used to Conversations, set up its numerous features, and have access to your chats if you need to. After that, Chat will be discontinued from Sendinblue and be replaced by Conversations. The Chat documentation will not be updated during this period. 

❓What about my contacts from Chat? 

If you had added your contacts to one of your lists from the Chat application, they will automatically be recognized by Conversations if the information they provide matches their contact details in Contacts
