About Segment

Segment is an API manager that allows you to easily turn on or off third-party code snippets in their applications. To use Segment, you first install the Segment code directly on your product and then use their dashboard to manage other third-party integrations, such as Chameleon. 

Note: You must be using Segment's JS library for Chameleon to function when installed via 

When using Segment to install Chameleon on your product: 

  • Chameleon is only installed on sites/pages where Segment is installed.

  • Chameleon features will only appear on pages where Segment's identify method is called.

  • In addition to installing the Chameleon code, Segment sends user data to Chameleon. You can leverage this to target experiences to specific users

  • Chameleon also sends data (e.g. about your experiences' performance) back to Segment, which you can use in other services connected to Segment. You can leverage this to coordinate all your user communication and view all product data in one place. 

We highly recommend installing Chameleon through Segment. It makes it much more powerful and can help your tech stack function more synchronously.
