Using Google Maps integration with live chat allows Agents to see where a customer is located. When enabled, the map will display a zoomable world (or country) map with the location of the customer pinpointed. The Who's On feature in SmarterTrack also uses the same map technology to pinpoint the location of website visitors.

NOTE: The Map URL can be left as the default and is provided in case Google changes the URL in the future.
