While I am searching answers on Stack Overflow site, there are some users that are known of that technology of my concern and often answered related to the same term that I am asking for.

May I know how do I start chat with him/her for my answer?


Open that user's chat profile link..

This is user profile link


add "chat" word before stackoverflow.


and click on start new room with this user


you can also invite to in room .

    For the last time @Jatt.net I did not downvote. And even if I did, so what? It's really not the end of the world. :/ – Shadow Wizard is Ear For You May 13 '14 at 12:59

    This technique doesn't seem to work anymore, the site user ID (at least from Information Security) and chat user ID are different. – WhiteWinterWolf Jul 2 '16 at 13:33

    @WhiteWinterWolf this answer is specific to Stack Overflow, which got its own chat domain. To find a user on the general SE chat, one must search the chat users list. – Shadow Wizard is Ear For You Dec 25 '17 at 9:35
  • seems like this method would led to an erroneous chat account unrelated to the main profile. – Sajuuk May 24 '19 at 6:37

    There is no "start new room with this user" button. – root Aug 5 '19 at 9:30
