I hate to click a chat bubble to open or close it but that's fine in all.
but could UR not just move the chat below the game screen an that way you can chat an play at the same time with out have to open an close it to play or chat. cause that time consuming an makes it a bit of a pain so many don't so it but if its below the play screen now you got the space. I think that will enter taine player to chat while they wait for their turn.
Well right now you have to press a chat bubble top right hands side cant miss it then it blocks you'r game.
I think if it opens below so you can chat an play same time. bring back old players an keep new one's if they have a thing to keep a player occupied til there turn really an lets Friends talk
