Clicking on the little arrow on the top left side of a message will bring up a little dropdown that provides more actions and the time when the message was posted:
Hovering over the timestamp in the tooltip should give you an exact timestamp.
<span title="9:32">posted 2h ago</span>
The tooltip is not working for me (because reasons), so here is a much more convoluted way to get at the info... it involves quite a few clicks. Here's how it's done:
This will bring up a page like this:
As you can see, it contains a more exact timestamp and also the timestamps of any edits made to the message.
I think if we get continuous chat in specific time then it will display timings on chat from which the chat is initialized. And if after that if we have chatted after one hour then it will display the timing in that chat.
You can look at this chat. In which you get the clear idea.
Just look at the timings displayed in Image. its showing
8.36 after that message was at
8.53 and then
10:56 there are 4 messages but its showing the timings only for one time because it was posted at the duration of 10 mins.
