The definition of a user can be quite different from web and mobile as chatbot and voice apps can be asynchronous, which leads to the concept of active vs engaged users.

Active users are ones who have received a message, while engaged are ones who have sent a message.

Sessions can active or engaged depending on whether users are responding or just receiving messages.

We support multi-user sessions, like in Slack, where multiple users are interacting with a bot in the same channel.
