Way we need chat in Ingress Prime when most of the agents use Telegram?
A) to communicate with players of other games
B) to tell new agents what telegram is.
not all agents wants use telegram since its external app and with social u can talk and recruit new agents ingame without needing extra apps.
Recruiting player in Niantic Social: *sends secure private message, conversation begins*
Recruiting player in COMMs: "Pretty please just download Telegram so we can talk"
New player: *crickets*
