Later this month, Zendesk will be releasing an enhanced Android conversational mobile support app experience that includes Agent Workspace and messaging support.
The new experience offers a streamlined user interface which makes it easy to view the ticket information and the conversation. We have two tabs: One which shows the replies, emails, or messages in a conversational layout; and a second tab which allows you to access ticket properties such as tags, assignees, and custom fields.
With this release, we will also support Zendesk messaging within the app. All your conversations from various messaging channels will be available to view and manage from the mobile app. To learn more about messaging, please visit these links:
The new experience is available in the latest version of the app in the Google Playstore. By default, the experience is not enabled. See Configuring the mobile app.
This announcement includes these sections:
About the update
Once enabled, you can access the new ticket details view by going to your ticket list and tapping on any ticket within the list. The ticket information is split into two tabs:
- Conversation, which displays the conversation from the selected ticket. You can reply to the ticket from this view and select the channel you want the conversation to continue on, such as email, social, web, etc.
- Details, which lets you view and update ticket and end-user information, such as tags, assignee, and requestor information.
For more information, see Working with conversational messages.
This version of the app does not support the ability for users to view or update their agent status. This limitation does not impact the ability to view or reply to conversations or manage tickets. Users will continue to get push notifications for any updates made on tickets that they are working on and are assigned to, based on their preferences in Settings.
Zendesk will be releasing a new Unified Agent Status later in 2022 which the mobile apps will support.

Hi, can I check that my customer service team are able to log into Live Chat as an agent from their iOS mobile and handle live chat tickets in real time?
We would like to be available to our customers and as a small team having the ability to response to our customs via Live Chat from our mobile phones would be really beneficial.
Is this out yet for iOS? The article says this would be released in October but it's almost the end of November and I don't see anything related to this functionality in the current version of the app (2.18.2)
I also don't see the ability to activate the new agent experience as highlighted in this article so I am assuming this is no longer valid? There is no such toggle in my version of the app (2.18.2)
Is this functionality now available?
Hi James Molina,
Yes, this is available on both Android and iOS! Please see the Announcing messaging in the iOS Zendesk Support mobile app announcement for more information.
