Every app is a messaging app

Person to Person

Connect people in your product and enable conversations with rich messages, making them stay in your mobile or web app longer.

Business to Customer

More conversations equal more transactions. Rich messaging enables you to quickly build trust and answer all customer inquiries faster.


Communities connect people around the content they love. Messaging in communities enables conversations about topics people are passioned about, driving engagement and retention over the long run. Layer powered rich messaging can be expanded with content cards for a uniquely differentiated experience. Support for GIFs, stickers, photos, and other rich messages lets users dive straight into emotional conversational experiences.


The ability for users to communicate is an essential part of every marketplace. Layer powered rich messaging brings users back in the app with notifications and helps build trust between buyers and sellers with a great chat experience. Rich messages, typing indicators, delivery and read receipts everywhere, make a better experience keeping users in the app, instead of losing them to SMS or e-mail. Better messaging equals more successful transactions, and more happy users.


Matchmaking and messaging are key components of every dating app. Layer's support for GIFs, stickers, music and any other rich media out of the box makes it incredibly easy for your users to express themselves in creative and emotional ways. Typing indicators increase engagement, while delivery and read receipts add a new dimension to chat in dating. With support for announcements and bots you can drive even more engagement and retention, fuelling the core matchmaking loop. A better, richer messaging experience means better conversations and more dates.

A better messaging experience sells more.

On-Demand & logistics

On-demand services are all about speed and convenience for the customer. Layer makes informing customers of order statuses or scheduled services straightforward with announcements. Rich messaging including photos, videos, location and other content cards enables customers to communicate with professionals in a simple, safe, and privacy conscious way as an integral part of your product experience.
