Chat lets you have a text conversation with one or more people nearby.
Start a chat session:
Invite someone else to Chat:
- On the Nearby Devices or Favorite Devices tab, select the device or person you want to chat with and click Chat .
Alternatively you can go to the What Can I Do Now? tab, and click Chat (instant message) . A list of devices is displayed. Select the device or person you want to chat with.
A chat invitation is sent to the person that you have selected to chat with. That person needs to accept the invitation to initiate the chat session.

- Enter your text and press Send. Text that is labeled Me is your text.
||Only the person who started the chat session can add or remove participants, but anyone can leave a chat session.|
