Open or Close Chats

On the other hand, if the conversation has been resolved or doesn't require any additional action, you have the option to "CLOSE" the chat.
It's important to note that closing a chat doesn't restrict any future interactions; it simply signifies the completion of the current conversation. Keep things organized and efficient by managing your chat statuses accordingly, knowing that closing a chat doesn't hinder any future engagements.
