How can I change the name "Answer Bot" in the messaging Web Widget window?
Follow the steps below to customize the name of the bot in the messaging widget.
To update a bot’s name
- In Admin Center, click the Channels icon () in the sidebar, then select Bots and automation > Bot.
- Hover over the bot you want to update and click Settings.
- In the General tab, enter your desired bot name under Name.
- Click Save.

Will it be possible to change the avatar/image of the Answer Bot via this settings page as well? Or is there another way to achieve this?
This is currently not possible but there are plans on addressing this in the near feature or later this year. Please follow our Whats New page to be updated on our latest Product updates.

It is possible through the code below. Place this code above the widget code snippet. The code will be able to update the avatar, bot name and the title of the widget.
you did a great thing by providing the language!
Sam - Test User I'm not sure this works with Messaging, I can't get it to anyway. This looks like a live chat widget call which I think will only work with the web widget (classic).
I'm happy to be proven wrong if you can show the code working with Messaging?
The Messaging Widget has limited API methods as listed here Web Widget API for more information. Based on the web widget script above, it will only work for Web widget (Classic).
I hope this helps! Thank you.
Gabriel Manlapig is can we request the ability to change the bot's avatar in messaging?
Hi Joshua Aaron G unfortunately there's currently no way to change the bot avatar as of yet - our team is working on it, but it's a while away.
I recommend following our Release notes here so you'll be notified once new features are released. Thanks!
