When accessing chat from within the Stack Exchange app, no keyboard is brought up when trying to add a message or edit an existing one. I had to access the chat via a web browser external to the app in order to get access to a keyboard in order to reply. I exited the app numerous times and even got rid of my third-party keyboard to make sure it wasn't just that. Nothing worked to fix it.

Here is a quick demo.

  • App Version:
  • Device: iPhone 7 Plus
  • OS Version: Version 11.4.1 (Build 15G77)
  • Are you sure you actually joined the chatroom (as opposed to viewing the transcript, which happens e.g. when you open a chat notification)? FWIW, I just tested it but I can't reproduce it.

  • Yes. I'm sure I joined. I'll take a recording of what happens and link it here. Give me a few minutes.

  • @Glorfindel Sure. So, after seeing it in action, am I doing something wrong?

  • I don't think so, so you get a +1 from me for posting a bug report with evidence :)
