Happy almost June, Typeformers! You may remember our announcement earlier this month in the post here about deprecating the Chat UI:
First, thank you all for your feedback and sharing your use cases. We realized it was a bit too soon to deprecate chat, so thanks to your feedback, we’ve decided to move the switch-off date to August 31st, 2023.
We know it isn’t easy to say goodbye to a feature, but we hope the extra time gives you the chance to adjust to the change. And don’t stop sharing your use cases! We’d love to see how you’ve been using chat and offer any alternative suggestions for embeds, such as using our popover option.
We chose to deprecate the Chat UI due to low usage, but we’ve been working on new innovative ways to collect, such as Formless. While this isn’t a replacement for the Chat UI, it might be a useful option for you in the future if you’re looking for an even more conversational form…less.
If you’d like to be the first to know when our beta version is available, sign up here. We’re also running an early alpha testing group. Drop a comment in the thread below if you want to take part.
You can look at a live example of Formless here.
Thanks again for sharing all your feedback, and as always, share any comments in the thread below.
We would love to take part in alpha testing
Can you confirm - if beta goes well - it’ll be native part of “Typeform” (not an “extra add on” extra fee) ?
Can you take a look. You’ll be surprised how similar they are to you in “world’s most beautiful design” you have !! At a minimal - the ability to API link with them from your end natively would be great . Also talk to their product managers :)
On the second part - I used to love using Drift! What kind of integration would you be looking for? For example, having the form within the conversation?
I used to use Drift for my personal website, so I totally get your love for it. (I replaced it with VideoAsk a bit ago.)
We would also love to be included in the beta!
please add me to the alpha
I would like to be added to the list! :D
@Liz ! has the alpha testing started yet?
