Sample Bubble Invitation:
The Invitation designer defaults to the "Inline" Style of invitation. An inline invitation is displayed in the standard inline chat window.
There are two different options for inline invitations, you may use the chat window as the invitation and add a message to it, or you may upload your own invitation image. The invitation will appear in the place of the chat window when launched.
