During your virtual group session, you have the ability to see and hear all of your attendees via the video chat. While many use this method as the primary way to interact during a virtual group, you and your attendees also have access to a text chat option. This can be helpful to discuss when a video is playing and everyone is muted, or if anyone does not have access to a microphone.
To access this function during a virtual group, click the text chat button (icon of a conversation bubble) on the right sidebar navigation.
In the text chat drawer, you can type messages and press “Enter” to send to everyone in the group.
As soon as you send the message, each of your attendees will be notified with a red indicator to let them know that there is an unread message in the text chat drawer.
