On some questions (e.g. here) I see the "Visit chat" section which refers to the current community chat page:

Other questions don't have such a section. Moreover on several questions (e.g. here) I see the section only when responsiveness is enabled (update: now I don't see it anymore here).

What's the expected situations when a user sees such section? Is it a bug that section is not visible after switching to non-responsive mode?

Tested on Android 8 Chrome 73.0.3683.90, Firefox 66.0.2

Unable to reproduce on iOS 12.2 Chrome almost same version (73.0.3683.68).

In private mode (i.e. logged out) I see the full "people chatting" block here:

After looking closely to iOS Chrome behavior I noticed that “Visit chat” block shortly appears while page reloading:

  • I assume if people were chatting in chatrooms linked to the site you're browsing you would see: i.stack.imgur.com/GMyd3.png That site you're has users that are not that talkative ... – rene Apr 14 at 7:01
  • @rene Actually it shows "Visit chat" before that box: "7 people chatting" gets fully loaded. Try disabling responsiveness and enabling it again; note the sidebar while the page loads. BTW this is the question in the screenshot. – user437611 Apr 14 at 7:03
  • No repro for me @Blue – rene Apr 14 at 7:05
  • Might be some userscript messing around with your page contents, I also can't reproduce in any way. (Tried resizing screen, dev tools to mimic mobile screen etc.) – Shadow Apr 14 at 7:10
  • @ShadowWizard user script on mobile Chrome? :) I'm on Android now. – αλεχολυτ Apr 14 at 7:17
