Adding the ability to chat with visitors in your app is a super powerful way to help improve your app’s overall customer experience. Instead of a visitor emailing, submitting a form or calling you, they can simply click on the Drift icon and start a conversation with you. And this form of engagement is becoming ubiquitous so users are starting to expect this functionality in your app.

Using Drift in your Bubble app is quick and easy to implement. While this video gives you details on how to set up Drift in your app, the high-level steps are here:
