As customer habits evolve, support needs to seamlessly follow them everywhere - whether browsing online, messaging friends or using apps on the go. Siloed support channels result in fragmented experiences. Businesses need unified solutions to offer video engagement consistently across a customer's preferred modes of interaction.

Some effective ways to integrate video include embedding it on websites for instant visual assistance. Customers can simply click to start a video call within FAQ pages or product tutorials for live clarification from agents.

Video can also enhance conversational interfaces powered by messaging platforms, virtual assistants or live chat bots. When hand-offs to humans are needed, smooth video connections maintain continuity of support.

Mobile apps present another big opportunity for video. Users facing issues on the go appreciate face-to-face help within apps through built-in video chat features. This keeps them self-sufficient without calling or switching context.
