Intercom has partnered with Moveo.AI to add a new agent to the customer support team, a smart AI virtual assistant! You can integrate your assistant with an Intercom application to enable the app to seamlessly pass user conversations between your assistant and live agents.
If you integrate your environment with Intercom, all interactions with users are initiated through and managed by Intercom.

Create a functional email account for your assistant. Each assistant must have a valid, unique email address before it can be added to a team in Intercom.
From your Intercom workspace, add the assistant to your team as a new agent.
Go to the teammate settings page in your Intercom workspace, invite the assistant as a new agent by adding the email you created in the previous step to the invite field.
From the assistant email account you created earlier, find the invitation from Intercom. Click the link in the email to join the team. Sign up using the assistant's functional email address, and then join the team.
Optional: Update the profile for your assistant.
You can edit the name and profile picture for your assistant. This profile represents the assistant in private agent communications within your workspace, and in public interactions with customers through your Intercom apps. Create a profile that reflects your brand.

The final step is to create an outbound Intercom Custom Bot that assigns your assistant from Intercom. Whenever the assistant is assigned, it will respond to the message from the end user!
In a handover case, your assistant will transfer the conversation to the
Unassigned Inbox, in order for other live agents to take over the conversation.
Moveo offers a specialized attribute designed to notify Intercom when the assistant has responded more than once. This feature can be valuable in scenarios where you intend to present a survey or pose a question to the user. To enable and use the custom attribute, follow the instructions below:
In your Intercom account, go to the Conversation data and select Create a new conversation attribute. Set the format to boolean and assign the name as follows:

Moveo's virtual assistant can only receive text as input. When a user or an agent uploads a media file in the Intercom messenger, Moveo converts it into a text message that contains the URL of the attachment.
