Weave Text Connect is a widget that can be installed on your website that allows customers to connect with you and start a text conversation. 

The availability of this feature is dependent on your Weave bundle. Schedule a time with a Weave representative to learn more.

Note: If you still have the retired Web Assistant Widget code on your website, Text Connect will not work. To continue using Text Connect through the widget, you'll need to update your website to the new Text Connect code available in the Weave Portal.
