We have released a version v1.17.0 with the following updates

🤖 Dialogflow integration

Chatbots are an essential part of every customer service platform. If you have many conversations happening in your account, scaling human support might not be effective. You could deploy a chatbot that helps answer trivial questions and hand it off to an agent when necessary. We have created a native integration with Dialogflow in the release so that it is easier for your to connect your bots.


🔖 Tag a contact using a label

You can now tag a contact with a label from the contact sidebar. This allows you to segment your contacts easily.


✨ "Assign to me" button

We have often received the request to make it easier for an agent to take ownership of a contact. In this release, we have added a button to make the self-assignment easier than ever.
