I'm really not sure whether this is an MSE-worthy issue, or just a Windows Phone one, but I'm hoping to provide enough details here such that it makes sense.
Pretty much just as stated in the title of this question, Stack Exchange Chat doesn't seem to recognize my phone as a mobile device, and consequently it doesn't give me a mobile experience.
I'll admit that I'm not really convinced that this is actually a Stack Exchange bug, but I'm at a loss for what else it could be, so I'm tentatively tagging this as support.
- I have a Windows Phone, running OS version 8.10.12359.845, which I believe may be a preview version (although they've yet to offer me an update).
- Stack Exchange sites do recognize it properly, and I'm fed the appropriate, mobile layout.
- I don't think I've ever had this problem on any other websites.
- My phone's User-Agent is :
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows Phone 8.1; ARM; Trident/7.0; Touch; rv:11.0; IEMobile/11.0; NOKIA; Lumia 822) like Gecko
I opened Internet Explorer 11's developer tools and set the user agent to view the mobile site, and that works. Although it doesn't seem to be aware of Windows Phone 8.1 yet, at least in my version. The User-Agent for that is:
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 10.0; Windows Phone 8.0; Trident/6.0; IEMobile/10.0; ARM; Touch)
