What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've got SE chat set up in a docked window in mobile mode in windows 8, and use it fairly regularly on an android phone. In both cases, hitting the enter key starts a new line. It would make sense to have a user selectable option to have it submit the line (so you didn't have to hide your on screen keyboard every line), and have shift enter start a new line instead - as it does on regular chat.

Could we have this fixed please?

Edit: It was just pointed out to me that this may be a duplicate of this - I've made a SLIGHT change to make this a distinct question. It still stands that there's lots of cases where the screen is large enough to avoid this issue, for example on a tablet, or where the lower bandwidth usage and rescaling of the mobile client is useful.
