Intelligence Suite

Braze’s Intelligence Suite helps you automate decision-making with data-based insights. From delivery time to multivariate testing, brands can use these tools and features to create dynamic, cross-channel experiences that optimize at scale.

The Intelligence Suite comprises of three main features: Intelligent Timing, Intelligent Channel, and Intelligent Selection.

Dark Mode Themes for In-App Messages

iOS 13 and Android 10 both introduced settings that allowed mobile phones to change their color themes to a “Dark Mode”. Aligning with this feature, Braze has introduced Dark Mode for in-app messages! This feature allows you to create in-app messages with a “light” and a “dark theme”. If a device you send to has “Dark Mode” activated, the message will display your selected Dark Mode Theme.
