  • Open chat and the participant list by clicking on Chat at the bottom of the screen while in a call
  • Chats are fully encrypted
  • Chat is text only
  • You can download a copy of your chat history as a text file 
  • Click Participant list to see a list of everyone in the call 
  • Pro tip! You can change your name via the Participant list menu 


  • Close a chat by clicking the close (x) icon. Or click the chat icon again
  • If you have the chat pane closed, a red notification appears on the chat icon, to let you know when someone has posted a new message
  • Clicking on a link shared in a chat opens in a new tab
