Customize your chatbot with buttons

Buttons block allows a smooth conversation experience, making it simple for users to take control. Every click presents you with the opportunity to customize your journey by picking one path or several and creating an engaging dialogue that suits all needs.

Buttons make bots come to life, providing an interactive experience for users when interacting with websites or social media accounts.
