The timing and scope of these features or functionalities remain at the sole discretion of LivePerson and are subject to change.

Connect to Messaging


Support for Google RCS channel 

Connect to Messaging (IVR deflection) now supports the Google RCS channel. Brands can choose to deflect voice calls to Google RCS. Select the Google RCS channel in the APIHandoff configuration and define the message with image, rich card, etc. 


GRCS handoff - C2M

Brands to use the C2M Web tool for the APIHandoff configuration for the Google RCS channel, and then the C2M APIs for eligibility and invite. Please refer to our Developer's Community here for API details. 


Route all conversations within the lookback period 

Brands have an additional option when creating APIHandoff configuration to route all conversations within the defined lookback period. By default this checkbox is unchecked and, in this case, only the first conversation will be routed to the Proactive skill. However, if the brand checks this new option, all the conversations will be routed to the Proactive skill. If a consumer replies outside the lookback period, the fall back is to the default routing set for Conversational Cloud. See new checkbox option in APIHandoff flow:
