Private group chat, persistent across games

Post by Jest Phulin » 29 January 2020, 08:23

I would like to see a group chat option, similar to the private message option, but allows multiple people to be included in the chat.

I often have a game night with some friends. While we chat in each individual game, it sometimes becomes a hassle to stop communicating while a new table is being created, everyone joining, and a premium member restarting the video chat session.

Holding off on making an entry in the suggestion tracker until I see if there is support for it.

Hi

"Invite friends" function in the lobby has been designed for this purpose. A group chat is created as soon as 1 friend is invited.

Click "Play with friends" at the top middle of the page below the general settings. This creates a temporary group chat of sorts.

Hm, could someone tell me what I am missing here? I see the chat window when the group is created, but it disappears when I go to the table. Additionally, it does not give me options for launching audio or video chat.

I'm using an old version of Chrome.

It should open again if you go to the lobby. If anyone in the group posts something it should appear in any open BGA windows/tabs.
