WordPress and Buddypress compatible
Both the free WordPress chat and app plugin and the premium versions work seamlessly with WordPress, Buddypress and WP-Mingle membership systems. Simply install the bar, it will recognize the system being used, and will properly display member info and avatars where and when required.
Apps, apps and more apps!
A whopping 50+ apps are available for Skysa, and most of them can be used with the free WordPress plugin.
Each app has its own customizable features, and any app that requires its own window can be sized to fit your site, or your contents.
Plus, you get detailed stats of individual app usage so you can decide which are more engaging, and promote them.
Public and private WordPress chat
Both the public and private chat apps allow instant media sharing, as well as collaborative document editing.
With a premium plan, you can also enable video chat in either one of the features, or both of them.
Feature-packed Live Support app
Although only included with premium plans, the Live Support Chat app is quite possibly the most powerful one available (imho). Not only can you assign an unlimited number of operators, they can privately chat among themselves to better help your users. Both site visitors and operators can initiate a support session.
You also get full statistics and reporting features for your Live Support showing you exactly how and when your operators have been interacting with your users.
The appearance of the bar is fully customizable too. You can select the background color & opacity, what icons to use for each app you have installed, whether apps should align left or right, place the bar at the top or the bottom of your site, initially expanded or compressed, and more still!
Share any site content
The Skysa share feature is also pretty cool. When a user clicks the “Share” button on your app bar (if you have it installed, that is), all the individual elements on the page will be highlighted. When an element is selected, a window pops open with options to comment on the shared content and select where to share it.

Where can you get this fabulous item, you ask?
Download the free WordPress Chat plugin first. Install it and create your Skysa Bar key. Then have a play with the free apps and all the cool settings. Once you’re familiar with how it works, and you’re fully impressed with its features, you can decide to stay with the freebie or upgrade to a paid plan at Skysa.com. I was so impressed with this plugin that I signed up for a paid plan only a couple of days after installing it! I think you will be too, and I’d love to hear what you have to say about this app bar in the comments below.
