this plugin make the job and is realy cool to use. i agree with the macro feature 😉 i use the premium version
Love the plugin for it's simplicity, compared to free versions of commercial services. Make sense if the free version if limited in features, but one feature is essential which should be included in both free/paid version is Sound for Notifications. Notification popup appear and then quickly fade away and we can easily miss it. What's the use of live chat if we can't notice an incoming chat. Include it in future updates please, Thanks
it works! really helpful and powerful, add more language support would be great!
Very nice and practical plugin! Great job. Would be nice if string translations (eg for polylang) were integrated appart from the .pot file. But still 5 stars!
