What It Solves

Hotjar Engage will be fully integrated within the Hotjar platform, adding a layer of insight to customers’ product development strategy: Directly testing face-to-face with the end user. Hotjar’s mission is to make the web a better place by giving organizations the feedback and tools to empathize with their users. 

What Makes It Special

According to the company, no other product currently offers all these features in one platform. Hotjar Engage aims to empower product teams to find, prioritize and implement the changes that matter most, as told by the people that matter most: Their users. It also allows product teams to add value by finding opportunities, sorting the data and acting upon it quickly.
