This question already has an answer here:

Right now I have one (1) reputation and I need 20 to be in a chat. How do I test the chat API? Do I need to get more upvotes to chat or is there a "sandbox" chat that does not need rep?

I know that the chat API is not formal and official and that is why I need to test it.

If there isn't a chat sandbox that doesn't require 20 rep, I will accept an answer saying so.
