Please note that this API relates to LivePersons legacy chat product which receives limited support and will be deprecated in the future.

It is recommended to build future integrations on top of LivePersons Messaging Platform SDK instead.

Use this method to periodically poll for new events in the chat session. The method for polling should always be the URI specified in the "next" link. This will only retrieve events added after your last poll.
