Chat will disable itself when your connection drops, or you reconnect too quickly!
If reconnect to the server too quickly or if you suffer from an occasionally dropping internet connection, you may find yourself disconnected from the chat once you are reconnected. When someone sends a chat message, or you type something in the chat, it may not get to the other person.

The reason this is happening, your wifi is dropping and instantly switching to Ethernet while connected to both adapters. So the server thinks that you have logged in from another location. And due to this, your new connection hasn’t properly connected itself to the chat!
We’re already working on a fix for this, but for now, the only solutions are the solutions above.
