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.

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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, ...

Create a filter. Using in:sent you can get all e-mails in the "Sent Mail" category, then match for text contained or whatever makes your chat logs unique and set the filter to apply the label Inbox which should move them to your inbox. This should mean that as soon as a chat log shows up in Sent Mail, it's moved to the Inbox.

You mean the computer-to-computer voice calling option, correct? Then, I could think of only two options: Make sure that he has not logged into his Gmail from mobile devices or any other devices that are not capable of supporting voice calling option. Make sure that both of you are logged in. Sometimes, people try to call when they are on invisible status.

If your school uses a private domain name (i.e., your email address does not end with @gmail.com) then the administrator controls access to any and all features of your account, including Google applications such as chat. There's nothing you can do then. Just switch to your own GMail account, or use an external app to chat.
