Support your clients and their customers by integrating your messaging platform with the Business Chat service.
Business Chat is a service that allows your organization to communicate directly with your customers through your Messaging Service Provider (MSP) platform using the Messages app. An MSP implements the server-to-server REST API solutions on their messaging platform which makes it possible to send and receive texts and photos, request payment through Apple Pay, and much more. For information on using Swift to setup entry points and Business Chat buttons, see Business Chat.
Figure 1 illustrates the relationship between a business, an MSP, the Business Chat service, and customers. The MSP platform handles customer message routing between Business Chat and the business. For more information on these accounts and how to qualify for them, see Business Chat Getting Started Guide.
Apple devices running iOS 11.3 and later or macOS 10.13.4 and later support Business Chat.
