Tawk.to – live chat on your website

I recently came across this tool tawk.to that is used for incorporating live chat on your website. What’s amazing about this tool is that it is completely free and can be installed on your android or iPhone as well!

Tawk.to is a web tool that is free to signup. You need an email and a valid website where you want the live chat to be installed.

Once installed, you can manage the chats from your desktop or laptop. Users with valid email address can be configured as an agent. Many agents can be set up and the users can start chatting.


The web chat is a must for all websites who want to sell their products or services. The instant chat lets users get answers immediately. Their queries can be answered and any further sales leads can be developed.

Tawk.to application has inbuilt tracking and analytics of the chat and the website in general as well. It gives you the number of visits and pages where the users spent and so on.

All the chat history and communication between the agents is stored in the application. In addition, agents can answer the chats on the go by installing the mobile app. The chat sessions can be recorded on the phone and stored in the computer applications.

Agents are able to see what the user is typing in real time and it gives time to prepare for the answer. Time when the chat ended, when the user left the website, if the user liked or disliked this tool everything is recorded. The application lets you set the status message as available, away, or invisible.

I thought it is similar to any customer service web application but the answers are not customized or suggested.

Overall, tawk.to is a cool asset for your website and let’s you instantly connect to the user! Let me know your thoughts.

Assassins Creed Syndicate

In 19th century London, there are no rules. The city has gone to the dogs. Crime and corruption rules the streets of a once-great empire that stretched continents. One man controls it all, but he doesn’t live at 10 Downing Street. Crawford Starrick is a crime boss with roots in the evil Templars, who have plans for world domination. And now he sets his sights to India. Who will save this dying city and stop Starrick in his path of destruction?

Two people is all you need.

Jacob and Evie Frye are twins with a mysterious life, but we don’t know about their lineage until towards the end of the game. (No spoilers) Their father and mother stood against Starrick at the beginning of his horrible reign. As the Frye twins free London, they meet many historically significant characters, like Alexander Graham Bell, a genius inventor and inventor of the phonetic telegraph, more widely known as the telephone. Another figure they meet is famous detective Frederick Abberline, a Seargent at the time. (Search him up. He had a pretty interesting life) That specific Inspector happened to work on the Jack The Ripper cases.

This installment of the Assassins Creed franchise brings about a new tool, which is a grappling hook, which the twins can shoot out of their specially-made gauntlets. The classic hidden blade makes an appearance. Since there are two protagonists, you can choose to upgrade Evie and Jacob differently, as they have the same skill tree, but there are some skills that are specific to Evie or Jacob, such as Chameleon, which allows Evie to, simply put, “disappear” into thin air if she crouches idly. There is also a different weapon system, with three different types of weapons making their appearances:

  • Kukris: an Indian weapon meant for confrontational-type attacks. Ideal for Jacob.
  • Cane-Swords: an inconspicuous can which can extend into a deadly and stealthy sword. Ideal for Evie.
  • External Knuckles: includes Brass Knuckles. Can stun enemies very well. Ideal for either of the twins.

There are many more details in the game, and the only way to experience all of it is to play the game. Out of 5 stars, I would rate it 4 out of 5 due to the amount of bugs. Other than that, it is a very good game.
