AboutYou can learn more about Square Live Chat from the documentation. It is also included in your download.
Square Live Chat can be used as a group chat box, live support system, or any other purposes. It uses text files to store messages and doesn’t require a database nor a socket server. It also supports multiple languages and custom themes. You can read more about that from the documentation linked above.
