Conversations are message threads between you and your customers. Conversations can last up to 24-hours and must be initiated by you (business-initiated) or your customers (user-initiated). Customers can initiate a conversation by sending you any type of message, but you can only initiate a conversation with a template message. Once the conversation has begun, you can then send any type of message to the customer.
A user-initiated conversation is a message thread started by a customer who sends any type of message to a business. No prior opt-in is required. When the business responds to the customer it begins a 24-hour user-initiated conversation window. All messages sent back and forth between the customer and the business within this window are associated with the conversation.
A business-initiated conversation is a message thread started by a business that sends an approved template message to a customer. Prior opt-in is required. When the business sends the template message it begins a 24-hour business-initiated conversation window. All messages sent back and forth between the customer and the business within this window are associated with the conversation.
Once the customer replies to the business's template message, the business can begin sending any type of message to the customer.
Customer Service Window
When a customer messages you, a 24-hour timer called a customer service window starts. As long as it has been less than 24 hours since they last messaged you, you can respond with free form messages. If it has been more than 24 hours since they last messaged you, you are outside the customer service window and must use a message template.
The customer service window overlaps with the conversation window for pricing in two ways:
If no active conversation exists between you and the customer when they send you a message, you can reply with a free form message and a user-initiated conversation will be opened.
If an active conversation exists between you and the customer when they send you a message, you can respond to the customer with a free form message and no additional conversation charges will be incurred.
If the customer Service Window is closed, the chatroom will switch to send template message automatically.
Customer Service Window

Customer Service Window

If a bot is running on the chatroom due to the message hitting the trigger condition. A notification bar will be displayed on the top of the chat area. By clicking “Exit Bot” if you need to interrupt the bot’s message responds.
If a WhatsApp media message was not delivered, there are a few likely explanations:
The media message was not sent during an active session with the user (see Rules and Limitations above).
iSlash encountered an error when trying to get your media.
Your message, including media, is larger than the limit for that file type.
The content-type headers of your media attachment do not match the file extension (for example, content-type is image/jpg but the file extension is .png).
If you included a message body with your WhatsApp media message and only the media was delivered to the user, please note that this is expected when sending an audio, contact, or location message. To deliver a text message as well as one of these media types, please send two separate messages.
