Create chat threads using WordPress Blocks inside app and mobile wrappers.
Chatterbox can be used for:
* Demos of chat bots
* Publishing chat records in news stories
* A fun way to add striking visual display to conversations
At launch, Chatterbox allows display of chats with messages and timestamps in inbound and outbound styles.
Chat threads can be displayed without a background, in an app container, in mobile phones and other computer screens.

Some of these features will rely on new features in the Gutenberg project. Once those are out in the wild, Chatterbox will be getting some love.
