i'm trying to collab with someone but we want to chat through repl.it but it doesn't let us chat.
how are we supposed to chat?
i figured out one way but we both have to be on repl.it at the same time to do it

@ysofka Hi,
You can see at the Bottom-right of your Repl
01

But the thing is that you and your collaborator should wanted to be on the same time.
or else your messages won't recieve to anyone out there with you.
This way is given by Repl.it

We have another alternate solution.
Through Discord
https://discord.com

It is used for chatting and hanging out but you can use it as Whatsapp with the world and with your collaborators privately.

But I think this feature what you are talking about is awesome feature
you can leave a post in Repl.it Feedback Section
https://repl.it/feedback/p/multiplayer-v1-feedback
The community may accept your wish.

That's it
Thanks!

Hope this helps

On Repl.it, unfortunately, the only way to chat is when you're both online. I suggest using a free private chatting app known as Discord.

You could also just create a post on forums and make a huge thread on there, since you got notified when people reply on forums

Hi,

yea the only way to chat with someone when they are not on the repl at the same is to leave some text for them in your code. You can also use comments:

But you can use the multiplayer chat, however it will only give notifications to that person if they are on the same repl:

so yea if you have any features or stuff you want to request, you can suggest it in feedback ;)

btw the chat is on your right.

Also, you can talk in comments:

although it is a bit hard to distinguish who's who

Also, report this to bugs. Thanks!
