Integrate Chatwoot with React Native app

If you have a react native app, you can add Chatwoot live chat widget to it and talk to your visitors in real time.

Chatwoot lets you chat with your visitors and provide exceptional support in real time. To use Chatwoot in your react native app, follow the steps described below.

1. Create a Website Channel in Chatwoot

As a first step, you will need a website channel configured in your Chatwoot account. To learn how to do this step-by-step, refer to the Website Channel document.

2. Add the plugin to your project

Add one of the following plugins to your project:

yarn add @chatwoot/react-native-widget


npm install --save @chatwoot/react-native-widget --save

This library depends on react-native-webview and async-storage. Please follow the instructions provided in the docs.

iOS Installation

If you're using React Native versions > 60.0, it's relatively straightforward.

cd ios && pod install

3. Use it like this

Replace websiteToken and baseUrl with appropriate values.

import React, { useState } from 'react';
import { StyleSheet, View, SafeAreaView, TouchableOpacity, Text } from 'react-native';
import ChatWootWidget from '@chatwoot/react-native-widget';

const App = () => {
const [showWidget, toggleWidget] = useState(false);
const user = {
identifier: '',
name: 'John Samuel',
avatar_url: '',
email: '',
identifier_hash: '',
const customAttributes = { accountId: 1, pricingPlan: 'paid', status: 'active' };
const websiteToken = 'WEBSITE_TOKEN';
const locale = 'en';

return (
<SafeAreaView style={styles.container}>
<TouchableOpacity style={styles.button} onPress={() => toggleWidget(true)}>
<Text style={styles.buttonText}>Open widget</Text>
closeModal={() => toggleWidget(false)}


const styles = StyleSheet.create({
container: {
flex: 1,
justifyContent: 'center',
alignItems: 'center',

button: {
height: 48,
marginTop: 32,
paddingTop: 8,
paddingBottom: 8,
backgroundColor: '#1F93FF',
borderRadius: 8,
borderWidth: 1,
borderColor: '#fff',
justifyContent: 'center',
buttonText: {
color: '#fff',
textAlign: 'center',
paddingLeft: 10,
fontWeight: '600',
fontSize: 16,
paddingRight: 10,

export default App;

Hooray! You're done.
