We recently integrated TalkJS into our web app. I personally worked a lot with it and it has a nice API, straight forward concepts, dashboard to see the conversations and different pricing levels. It comes with UI components that you integrate into your app and get going. I have a good concept of it.

Hi, we really like your chat API but we don't find any UI for it. We wouldn't like to have to build the UI from scratch. We've heard something about Twilio Frame but we don't quite understand how it will help creating a chat UI.

Thanks.

Twilio Frame was intended to be a UI for Chat, however it ended up superseded by Twilio Flex.

Right now, outside of Flex, we don't provide prebuilt UIs.

I did recently write up how to use the Kendo conversational UI to build a chat with Twilio Chat which you might be interested in?
