What happens in a Concierge to Knowledge Bot hand-off for Connect/webConnect?

When the customer has a question about a specific device or software, the Concierge (Welcome) Bot can access a device-specific Knowledge Bot to respond, without the user having to leave the chat. The Concierge Bot hands off its work to the Knowledge Bot in a seamless transition. All the user has to do is press a button or type a question that redirects them to the Knowledge Bot.
