https://get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/212281468-Direct-messages-and-group-DMs (mirror): When you add people to a DM (Direct Message), a new conversation will start without the previous message history. (If you'd like to keep message history, you can move the group DM to a private channel instead.)

I've been looking for this threaded conversation feature, too. One way I saw to accomplish it is to post "snippets" or "posts" to your group. Users can then comment on those "snippets/posts". I think the "snippet" feature is a bit better because (if you give each "snippet" a title) Slack will create a hyperlink from the title. This way any user can click the ...

Jitsi Meet do not plan on providing an "Echo Test" service: ...we don't have plans to implement a pre-call device testing screen. While in a call though, you can open the device selection dialog and it will preview audio and video devices. Posted at jitsi/jitsi-meet #1823 However, other hosts do provide echo tests, which allows you to at least test ...

Just announced! Threaded messaging comes to Slack ... Say someone posts a message in Slack that you want to follow up on, but the deeper conversation doesn’t apply to everyone. Now, you can kick off a detailed discussion on that particular topic by hovering over the message and clicking Start a thread. The right sidebar in Slack will open, and you can add ...

I have been trying to find the answer to a similar question however I think I can answer yours. Even if chat is turned off on your mobile, your last login to facebook mobile will be shown to friends who you do not have chat open to, at least it shows them in the web chat sidebar. The only way around this I have figured is to uninstall or logout of the mobile ...

There is a built-in chat, which as far as I can tell is only accessible when multiple people have a document open. At the top-right corner, next to the "Comments" and "Share" buttons, there should be a chat icon. The chat icon appears when another user opens the document. It seems that when all users except you have then closed the document, the icon ...

If you are looking for group chat functionality, then yes, Hangouts has it. First, pick one of the contacts in your group that you want to add to the chat. Then, you'll see the chat box pop up. Click the little icon of a person with a plus sign to add more people to the room. Keep adding people as needed.

Chat replay works from the viewer's point of view, as if the Stream was being replayed live. That's because the "stream delay" is really Twitch's servers processing the video before broadcasting it back out on the streamer's channel page. You can most clearly see this when watching archives of streamers that include chat in their stream video, such as ...

Yes, You can chat with non-Gmail user but the condition is this that they are using: Google's G Suite for Business and they are not related to any other provider like yahoo, hotmail they can be from a particular company id e.g. "rohan@hiscompanyname.com" and he is on G Suite then you can send and chat together.

You can translate "newly created accounts" to "accounts created after June 2017" – it seems they've basically grandfathered the web client, you'll never be allowed to log in to the WeChat for web unless you obtain an old account or they change this policy.

There is no use, I got an account earlier than June 2017. It wont let me login and state that "for your safety you're not allowed to log in web" I think they are just forcing people to download actual application on pc for some reason.

My account is about 2 years old and is identity verified. I still get this message if I try to use web chat. I somehow think the message should be regarded as "Web Client WeChat is no longer supported"

You can invite non-Gmail users (e.g. those who do not have a Google Account) to a Hangouts call. In general, you cannot invite non-Gmail users to anything else (e.g. chat conversation). You can find more out about how to invite a non-gmail user to a video call here. However when using the "Hangout" app on mobile, you can send normal SMS messages through ...

Right-click the chat button (in this case, the balloon thingy) and select the option "Inspect Element" (or similar). It is available in most desktop browsers (I tried Chrome, Firefox, Edge, they all had it), and should be available in mobile browsers, as well. You should see something like <div class="intercom-launcher-close-icon">. Searching for "...

I've found that I can send people a link to my Google+ profile page which has an icon to start a hangout with me. This isn't an ideal solution. The hangout icon is not prominent on the profile page. Some people can't find it. You can't search for a Google Plus URL to add a person to a hangout, so there is not way to use the profile URL from within the ...

I think there used to be a way to embed a link in a web page for this, but I'm having trouble finding it now. You can also just begin a Hangout and you'll get a URL that you can share with anyone who you'd like to join that Hangout.

TalkHq (We) implemented message threading on Slack. It's a bolt-on but it works. Now, we just have to wait till Slack is happy enough with their implementation/have enough time on their roadmap to get it out to us!

Gmail has removed the ability to never show, block or anything from the UI. There is no way to remove them that I can see anymore. And even if you tell them not to add people to that list without you specifically doing so they add them anyway :-(

This is based on your browser size. Beyond a certain width, the chat window merges with the Facebook ticker. You can probably get your browser real estate by closing that window.

There is no way to see if chats were deleted, unless someone saved the page before the fact. But there is a way to see if the message was read, archived or classified as spam

You can use custom scripts to control the appearance of the stickers. For that you need to use a plugin on your browser that can do that, GreaseMonkey (for FireFox) and Tampermonkey (for Chrome) Once you install the extension/plugin, you are ready to add the script for any site. I am not sure about Greasemonkey's function, to add a new script to Facebook, ...
