Functions sneak peak + Chat Thing updates

It’s been a little while, so we thought we’d give you an update. Also read to the end if you want to see another sneak preview of our most anticipated feature yet! First lets not break tradition…

What do you call a robot who loves to take naps? Rust in peace!

Here's a roundup of the key developments since our last update:

🌍 Global Connection: Localisation

Say hello in multiple languages! You can now change your bot's UI language. Our global expansion begins with English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese.

🤖 Your Bot, Your Brand: Chat Icon Customisation

Personalize your chat UI by uploading custom icons that resonate with your brand's identity.

🌐 Source It Right: Response Sources

Track it back! Your bot now reveals the sources behind its responses, including web links for web data-generated answers. Transparency, at your service!

📚 Documentation Redefined: Dazzling Docs

No more hunting for knowledge – our documentation is now beautifully organized on our website. Seamlessly navigate and get your answers without a treasure hunt.

🌞🌚 Light or Dark: Your Choice

Day or night, choose your battle mode! Introducing Light and Dark themes to elevate your Chat Thing journey.

⚡ Full-Throttle Crawler: Turbo-Charged

Hold tight! Our crawler's speed now boasts a concurrency of 3. Experience lightning-fast data gathering like never before.

📰 RSS Revolution Unleashed

Experience the evolved RSS feed – now equipped to handle items sans links, a no-link-following option, and CSS selector magic. Feeding your bot just got a power boost!

📱 Mobile Marvel: Interface Enhancements

Navigate with ease! We've revamped our chat interface for mobile, optimizing space and bringing example questions inline.

🔧 Under-the-Hood Excellence

We've worked the magic behind the scenes – bug fixes, performance boosts, and enhancements aplenty for a smoother experience.

Brace Yourself for Functions!

Now, for the pièce de résistance – functions are on the horizon! Our most awaited update yet will transform your bot from answering questions to completing tasks in the real world. Imagine bots capturing leads, sending emails, processing Stripe refunds – the possibilities are limitless. This opens doors to a world of new use-cases.

Ready to see the magic in action? Check out two quick demos, both built in minutes using Chat Thing's no-code UI. (Note: The Stripe demo requires basic knowledge of the Stripe API, but we're simplifying this before launch!)

Here’s the first, a Stripe bot that can search for customers, list their payments, and make refunds!

Here’s the second, a marketing bot that can browse the web, analyse a website and generate marketing campaign ideas!

We're buzzing with excitement about functions, and we can't wait to hear your ideas too!

Got questions? We've got answers! Our support wizards are standing by to assist you.

Stay amazing and keep those conversations flowing!
