Media elements in chatbots

You can add various media elements to make your chatbot communication more engaging. This can enhance user experience and help you convey your message through audio and visual content.

To add an element, in the Message element, click Add, and select an element. Under every element, you can also add a button.

Image

This element is supported by all messaging platforms and communication channels.

The Image element is used to add visual data. For example, you can show what your product looks like or add illustrations to your text.

We recommend using images with a resolution of 200x500.

We recommend adding secure links in the https:// format to ensure users can access them without any issues.

To specify a dynamic path to an image, select a variable, or specify a JSON path in the field.
