What features does the service have?
Chat API performs quite many functions. In your user account, you can find tools for testing API functions, an SDK generator, two chatbot builders, a base64 converter, a link builder, as well as a convenient interface that allows you to add, pay for, and manage your instances.
Using the documentation and manuals, you will be able to send all types of files and messages in WhatsApp, automatically create and manage instances, install webhooks, set up event notifications, create groups, work with the “goods” category, as well as do many other things.
How do I start working with the service?
Everything is pretty simple. Go through the registration process, scan the QR code in your user account, and you can start sending messages without moderation. To use the service, you will need a smartphone with a stable internet connection. Also, take care not to let WhatsApp switch to the background.
In this video at our channel, you can view the registration process and learn about Chat API’s functionality.
Do you have chatbot builders?
Yes, we have two of them.
– Menu-bot. The free tool solves simple tasks related to processing incoming messages. To learn more about it, go to our article (containing a video) in the knowledge base.
- Visual bot constructor. This tool is more powerful, and it is designed to solve various complicated tasks of communicating with your customers via WhatsApp. It is an extra feature that is paid separately from the service’s basic functionality. You can learn more about it from the explanatory article in the knowledge base.
Will Chat API be updated together with WhatsApp updates?
Yes, it certainly will. We have been developing and maintaining Chat API since December 2015. Typically, WhatsApp releases 3 to 4 updates a year that influence the work of Chat API and we adapt to these changes within 1 working day.
Do you do integrations?
Chat API works with over 3000 programmers and organizations globally and processes more than 1 billion user requests per month. That is why we focus much more on providing a good stable API rather than integrations per se.
At the same time, our users report that integrating with the service is a simple and easy process. For a smoother integration, you can use an SDK generator in your user account and a guide for developers in the knowledge base.
