This article covers installing and activating the Mobile and Desktop App for your Android and Windows device.
In order for the Mobile and Desktop Application to function as intended, you will need to ensure that you have installed WP Live Chat Support (Basic) and purchased and installed the WP Live Chat Support Mobile and Desktop App Extension, on your WordPress site.
Please consult this article for an overview of installing and activating our basic version.
After your purchase of the App has been completed, you should receive a download link from us. This will download the App Bundle in a zipped file. Please unzip this file to find the App installer and zipped extension (plugin) inside.
You will then need to navigate to your WordPress Admin area → Plugins → Add New → Upload.

Click Install Now.

Click the Activate button to activate the Mobile and Desktop App extension.
Once the App Extension is Installed and Activated on your site, you will need to verify the plugin using your API Key.

On your WordPress site, navigate to WordPress Dashboard → Live Chat → Devices.
