Changing the content on the minimized widget

[Desktop]

tawk.to makes it easy to completely customize your widget's design and content. Customizing your widget will help make the widget’s appearance consistent with your brand and engage more visitors in chat.


When customizing your widget, you can choose between a rectangle or circle widget.

The circle widget is a great choice if you want something simple or if you have limited space in your web page.


On the other hand, a rectangle widget offers additional options for customization. You can do the following:


  • Change the minimized width and height
  • Adjust the top and bottom radius (the curve of the edges)
  • Change the message that appears on the minimized chat widget


Note: There is no option to change the text in the minimized widget for mobile. You can only customize the widget content in desktop.
