How you greet your customers is very important. Make an awesome first impression by sending the first welcome message - and use the card buttons to enrich the customer experience.

Improved Agent UX - Call Ringing
This release brings improved agent experience during calls. Now, agents can easily access all Infobip web interface products and features while on the call with seamless and smooth transitions. As long as the agent is logged in and available, they will be notified whenever there's a new call.
If they are browsing the web, they will still hear the ringing sound and the incoming call indicator will be shown in the Infobip web interface.
Voice and Video channels merged to a single Calls channel. Read more about Calls.
Push notifications are automatically enabled in the mobile app. Agents will receive alerts when a new conversation is assigned to them and whenever there's a new message in that conversation.
With this release, users have the option to record voice notes and send them as audio files.

New conditions added to existing workflows. These conditions provide more flexibility in defining what triggers a specific action.
- Customer reply pending (existing option)
- Queue is Premium (new)
Some conditions need to contain the channel, direction (inbound or outbound), queue, tag, etc.
Conversation Forms Improvements
Adding Forms for Social Media conversations - users are able to set triggers for social media conversations and see forms for those conversations.
When merging two conversations, form fields set in the initiator conversation (not in the recipient conversation) are merged.
Forms are assigned when conversations from bots or flows are transferred to an agent.
