General limitations

  • Navigation action - when navigation action button is tapped on Facebook Messenger templates, Google Maps will be displayed in Facebook webview with the structured content coordinates location and not the exact address. Important to consider this when using the navigation action. (This is currently in planed to be resolved in the next versions of msg-gw-facebook).

  • List template - Top_element_style in the List Facebook template will not be supported (will always be set to "Compact").

  • Generic and Button templates - Facebook "Default action" will not be supported.

  • Default message size is limited to 15,000K. Keep this in mind when building large templates.

  • Facebook allows various actions within buttons - share user location, share email, and phone number - this is not supported with LivePerson's templates.
