We have aliased the vast majority of the legacy $zopim.livechat APIs, so it will continue to work without the need to update any code. To see which APIs are planned or currently in-progress, please refer to our Web Widget developer API reference.
Please note, there are some cases where the mapping may result in subtle differences in how the APIs behave in the Web Widget compared to using $zopim.livechat previously. For example, we don’t have any separation between our launcher and window, so if you call `hide` or `setOffset` we apply it to the entire widget instead of just the launcher or window. Refer to the notes in Web Widget developer API reference for more detail.
If you intend to continue using the $zopim.livechat syntax for some time before migrating to the new zE syntax, please refer to this article to understand how to correctly wrap $zopim.livechat API calls when using zE.
If you previously signed up for the EAP, but indicated a need to wait for the APIs to be available, you should now receive an email to notify you that the EAP is enabled for your account.
To find a detailed description for each API refer to the Web Widget developer documentation.
