A lot of great feature

Ease of use

My favorite one is the automatic preview feature and pop out of chat.


Not so bad... but it could be better.


Very clear and understandable

I used this to: Easy and friendly contact with visitors of my website.

Missleading Info

Posted on 08 February 2015

Looks good

I used this to: this is not a review, but more a info that it's missleading info in price here on Joomla.org. It's listed as a free download, but it's a paid extension, with a free 7-days trial. think it's bad when i filter out my search with "free downloads" and it turns out it's a paid one.
Owner's reply: Thank you for reaching out. 7 day trials have been introduced just a couple weeks ago and unfortunately we have not managed to update the descriptions of all our plugins, including Joomla!. Despite the fact that the premium version can be tested for 7 days, after all the plan automatically downgrades to a free version and Chatwee can still be used as well!

However, you are absolutely right, it will be worth to add relevant information in the description, to avoid future misunderstanding!
