    Hi all,

    Just recieved an email from Ongair that they not support Whatsapp anymore due to the regulations of Whatsapp inc.

    Read the statement below;

    We regret to announce that we will no longer be able to continue offering WhatsApp customer care service on Ongair.

    This follows a Cease and Desist notice from WhatsApp Inc. directing us to stop offering the service via our platform. We have no choice but to comply with this notice and have decided to slowly phase out our current WhatsApp offering.

    The Full text of the email

    We regret to announce that we will no longer be able to continue offering WhatsApp customer care service on Ongair.

    This follows a Cease and Desist notice from WhatsApp Inc. directing us to stop offering the service via our platform. We have no choice but to comply with this notice and have decided to slowly phase out our current WhatsApp offering.

    We do have some good news, we now support WECHAT, TELEGRAM and we'll soon be adding LINE to our chat channels these come with a ready to go Zendesk integration.

    Would you be interested in these other Chat channels ?

    Thank you for your patience and support.

    Currently reaching out through our network of friends and partners to see if we can continue in the future with official support from WhatsApp but at the moment we have to comply with their Request.

    Our WeChat and Telegram to Zendesk integrations are up and running, already you can do interesting things like sending automated satisfaction surveys right in the chat complete with a custom keyboard.

    Hello,

    I'm also looking for a customer support tool that will offer integration with whatsapp. Most of my clients are used to whatsapp chat and I would like to keep the same experience for them. Has anyone here tried or heard of a great tool integration?

    Thank you!

    Hello Zendesk Support,

     

    A WhatsApp integration in Zendesk is really necessary. We are receiving more request for this. Some larger webshop are using WhatsApp for their customer service and therefor customers are asking/demanding we use it as well. 

    If Zendesk will not provide WhatsApp in the near future, we will be forced to use other tools for that and maybe all of our customer service. An extra tool, or switching to another customer service tool like Zendesk, is not what we want at all. Because we are a satisfied Zendesk customer. 

    Best regards,

    Stefan

    I would invite those in Brazil looking for this integration to test our platform.
    We offer other types of interaction through WhatsApp.

    What is Zendesk's vision on Whatsapp support? Our competition is offering Whatsapp support already, with Zendesk we can't. I don't want to add extra software to reach our goal, I'd love to see this integrated in Zendesk.

    Hi Rene and everyone else,

    As you know WhatsApp doesn't publish an official API yet. All solutions you can currently find in the market are we believe in violation of WhatsApp Terms Of Service and using them, unfortunately puts you in that category as well.

    As a result, Zendesk and its partner network has decided that we would not be providing WhatsApp as a channel for our products until WhatsApp opens a fully supported API for us to integrate with.

    Let me know if you'd like more information

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Maxime, sorry to disagree with you.

    If you read carefully WhatsApp EULA, there are not one but may, many gaps concerning the subject.

    I know that you guys are concerned about that specially now a days when Zendesk not located in Europe.

    Hi Maxime

    We're really keen to get WhatsApp integrated but we also agree that we should wait for a fully supported API. It would not be good for us to begin a customer support process on an unsupported connection and for it to be pulled without warning. 

    That said I don't want to wait much longer!!

    Have you begun discussions with WhatsApp since they announced their business service strategy in January?

    Thanks

    Guy

    Hi fellows, why not use telegram?

    In this 2nd semester Google will release their messaging platform, this can be the pivot point for WhatsApp.

    Meanwhile Telegram seams a good option.

    Cheers!

    Hi,

     

    It's not a matter of choosing a specific technology.

    It just as simple that our clients are using Whatsapp and we want to listen the communication channel our clients are using!

    It seems that Whatsapp is pretty common in Latina America as my clients in that region are eager to use it.  There is even corporate deployment of Whatsapp in some organisation.

    I'm wondering if Zendesk is not interested in developing that integration because it would cut off the grass under the feet of Zopim? :-)

    Meanwhile, looking for ComTodos.

    Cheers!

    Hi Jérémie

    Our stance remains the same (for Zendesk). Until WhatsApp and Facebook offer an official, maintained, approved way of building business level integrations with WhatsApp we will not allow any of those integrations to be listed on our Marketplace.

    All solutions you can currently find in the market are, we believe in violation of WhatsApp Terms Of Service and using them, unfortunately, puts you in that category. This is our interpretation, we understand some ISVs out there will disagree.

    We are working closely with Facebook on a lot of other subjects and are monitoring this subject very closely, rest assured that we will post something here if anything changes!

    Hope this is helpful!

    Maxime
