Webchat

We have updated our Webchat:

  • Few minor fixes on the Quickreplies component
  • A better browser compatibility on Safari, Firefox and Edge
  • A total mobile UI rework, so you can embed the Recast.AI webchat in a webpage and have a smooth experience on mobile too.

If you're not using it, check this little demo to understand how to plug your chatbot to your website:

Slack integration

We just released a bugfix for the Slack integration. In case you have experienced issues connecting your bot to Slack, please try the following steps:

  1. Remove your bot from your workspace (https://<workspace>.slack.com/apps/manage)
  2. Re-authorize your bot as described in the last step of the Slack integration in the Recast.AI dashboard:

Your bot is now live, share the URL with your friends! https://slack.com/oauth/authorize?scope=bot&client_id=SLACK_CLIENT_ID

Intent list

We have fix the intent list view: We were expecting performance issue for big bots (with lot of intents) when trying to load all entities of each intent. We have refactor this specific request and now ✨ it's blazing fast✨.

So the view is now as you expected before, you can see your intents and all entities used in each of them.

Bot Builder GO-TO action

Add a link on the skill name to navigate more easily to it in each GO-TO action.

Tokenizer Pos Tagger

We have improved inference time and quality of preprocessing steps of our NLP engine. This leads to minor improvements on downstream tasks (such as entity detection and intent classification) across all languages.

FB Messenger Integration

We have updated our FB Messenger Integration in Bot Connectr to support the new API version Messenger Platform 2.4:

The main fix is the implementation of the messaging_type property send for each message, as it's mentionned in the new FB Messenger changelog:

Send API will automatically append default values for message sends that do not include the messaging_type property. Developers should continue to implement messaging_type as soon as possible.

Community support

We are updating our community support, now you will see a Slack Bubble in the documentation pages.

If you don't have joined it yet, you can get an access here: https://slack.recast.ai
