Introducing the Drift Platform

When we launched Drift back in 2016, we were a messaging tool, plain and simple. But as we talked to the marketers and salespeople using our product day after day, week after week, month after month, and incorporated their feedback into the product, Drift began to evolve.

Today, what started out as a messaging tool has become the world’s first conversational marketing and sales platform.

And we’re pumped to announce that with the launch of our developer platform, now everyone can build on top of Drift.
