Unable to change chat settings


Hello All,

When I was having a meeting with my friends and I was the host, all of them complained that in chat, it is showing that they can only message me. They wanted to message everyone in the meeting. I checked in settings and everywhere but can't find the reason.

hi p-s,


Check the settings for in-meeting chat.  I think you want the Everyone option.


In the By default, allow participants to chat with drop-down, specify if meeting participants are allowed to chat with No one, Host and co-host only, or Everyone in the meeting. This option saves the setting as the default when the meeting is started. This setting only works properly if the host is on client version 5.7.3 and above.
