What is Intercom?

Intercom is a live chat solution for support, sales and marketing teams. It allows you to track events and see how the customers interact with your product.

How does this integration work?

The LiveSession integration adds a recording link (as a note) to every Intercom conversation with an identified user. This way, you can get more insights and see exactly what the user sees.

Every time a new Intercom conversation starts, a note with a link to the session recording is created. You can play recordings of a specific user directly from the Intercom conversation.
