Getting Started with KendoReact Conversational UI

The KendoReact Conversational UI bridges the gap between the Web and the next-generation natural language applications and delivers the Chat component which allows the user to participate in chat sessions with other users or with chat bots.

The KendoReact Chat component is part of the KendoReact library of React UI components. It is distributed through NPM under the kendo-react-conversational-ui package.

The Conversational UI Component is part of KendoReact, a professionally built commercial UI library. To try out this Conversational UI you need to sign up for a 30-day trial, which gives you access to the full KendoReact library.
