As of today, Octopods supports 15 channels. We support different channel categories for different usages, and we try to make them accessible to our customers in terms of plan organization and pricing. Here is a peek into what that means.

What is the difference between a message and a conversation?
A message is a single text, image, or any other content type that is sent to or from Intercom.
A conversation is a grouping for many messages between a user or many users and a teammate or many teammates.
We count messages that are sent in either direction, from a channel to Intercom, or from Intercom to a channel.
