No ETA though (other than probably not too soon). and more recently from sept 2016: Threading is in the works — bear with us if you can. Thanks! 🏓 ...

I found a clever hack based on one of the idiosyncracies of Gmail contacts. In Gmail addresses, the dot character is insignificant. Therefore jacob.orwell@gmail.com is equivalent to jacoborwell@gmail.com, ja.cob.orwell@gmail.com, j.a.c.o.b.orwell@gmail.com etc. Now suppose you want to block Mr Orwell, then this is what you need to do: Delete his contact. ...

No, they will not receive any notification about your action. The user will continue to see you in their list with the "Invited" status.

Gmail checks settings with built-in tools. You simply go to Chat settings page and click on Verify your settings (it has a plus sign to the left). There the instructions are straightforward: camera capture is shown to the right and mic level indicates if it's connected. If you are using Google Hangouts instead of chat, you need to create an empty hangout, ...

Based on comments I know that you don't have any other devices connected (which is a big first thing to check if others have this problem in the future). And you have tried the 'traditional' turn off chat: This is not a duplicate of How can I log out of Facebook chat?. It says “Turn off chat” on that question's answer but I say “I turned off chat but ...

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.

I have struggled with this problem for the better part of this afternoon. There are several iterations of this question posted in the support forums, and so far I have not seen a single satisfactory answer. But I stumbled upon a solution. Others were on the threshold of the solution by suggesting that the individual contacts you want removed be deleted ...

You will have to install a different chat system - like Skype or Google Chat. This does mean that all your friends will have to install this chat system too, which is something they might not be willing to do if you are their only friend using this system.

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 ...

Opening the "Preview" (Chat icon in the top bar) does not trigger the read receipt, neither does going to facebook.com/messages/. But opening the conversation (facebook.com/messages/?action=read&tid=id.123456789) by clicking on the message or opening the chat window sets the "seen" flag and Person A will see it although B is offline.

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 ...

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 ...

I highly recommend the Minimalist Gmail extension if you are using Chrome. The amount of customization available is really useful to craft the perfect interface for Gmail. I use it to turn off chat, invite, the toolbar on the footer, and many other tweaks. Update The next generation of the minimalist tools by Ansel Santosa is now in beta, called ...

Make a custom stylesheet, enable it with Stylish or similar: .nH.pp.ps, .ar.as, .pS.s, .pS.pY { display: none !important; } This works for me.

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 ...

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.

Click on your picture at the top of the chat widget and drag. Then the option Hidden contact appears. The hidden contacts will be visible. Then click Unhide.

No answer here in a long time so I will try. No, there is no way to bulk unhide the contacts that you said "never show." However, Google Chat now provides a way to change the size of the widget on the left side of the inbox. Click on your picture at the top of the chat widget. Under Show in chat list there are options to control how many contacts appear ...
