How to set up a Front Chat inbox in Front

Front's Chat inbox allows you to live chat with your customers directly from Front so that all customer interactions occur in one place. Front Chat will work for any website and mobile webpage. We do not support mobile apps yet. 

Front Chat can be purchased in addition to your regular Front plan. It can be purchased for only the users that need to reply to messages; other users can comment on, assign, and tag chat messages, but not reply.

Here's a sample of a code snippet:
