I don't know if this is a bug, but the keyboard button does not appear in chat.
Hi @Planeded - I'm sorry you are experiencing this; what version of Ingress are you using and type of phone do you have?
Try click on some agent's name and select send a message, keyboard will appears.
Multiple agents have the same issue. It was mentioned elsewhere on the forums recently, though I can't seem to find it. Or maybe it was just in multiple chats.
For me 2.79.1 and Android 10 (Samsung S8)
I have to do the reply trick to speak in comms unless I'm near a PC...
OK, I think this is fixed in 2.80.1 which is why I was asking; also some folks that I've spoken to in the wild said that a Scanner restart has corrected it.
I don't have much to offer beyond that at this point :( other than the reply trick.
@Planeded, @EvilSuperHeros - can you let me know if it works if you restart your Scanner? If not, can you let me know if it's fixed when you get on 2.80.1?
Restarting scanner did not work. Just got the update to 2.80.1 and still no keyboard option showing in comms. Only way to chat is to use the workaround to reply to someone.
Samsung s8, Android 10
