When you use the conversation widget from Freshchat to deploy your bot, your customers will be able to use Topics. Topics are specific messaging channels that your customers can use to connect to your team. Depending on the Topic, you can offer specific support. If you’re using bots, you can trigger a different bot flow for each Topic.

Note: Only the conversations widget can be connected to Freshchat Topics. To know more about the difference between the conversations widget and the self-service widget, click here
