How do Announcements work with AtomChat?


As a Community or Marketplace owner, you would want to occasionally want to make site-wide Announcements. Could be super-good news like your soon to roll-out Video chat feature for all or to notify them of an upcoming event, or something just as casual as Hi! 

Where can your users see Announcements?


In the header section or top of the chat layout, there is a bell icon 🔔., click on it. If you have added any announcements, your users will see it here. 

Here's how you can send Announcements via our API
