Chat in Meetings

In 8x8 Virtual Office Meetings, you have the flexibility to use group or individual chat during a meeting. As the situation requires, you can raise a question or suggestion via chat for everyone in a collaborative meeting, or discuss the content of a presentation in a one-on-one chat with a specific user without interrupting the presenter.



To enter group chat:

  1. In the header of your meeting window, click the More Options icon to open a drop-down menu.
  2. From the drop-down, select Chat to open the Chat tab.
  3. By default, the tab opens in group chat. If you are in an individual chat instead, click the Group Chat icon to switch back to group chat.

To enter a private chat:

  1. In your main meeting window or in the list of participants, hover over the desired participant.
  2. Click the More icon that appears next to the participant to open a drop-down menu.
  3. From the drop-down, select Private Chat to open a chat with the desired participant.
