Note: For a chat room participant to be available for conferencing, needs to meet these requirements:

  • Should be online
  • Should be in the contacts list of the one who activates the plugin. Chat rooms allow users to chat even if they do not have each other in their contact lists. But they have to be in each other contact lists to connect via the other features (plugins).
