While in a place, users have the ability to chat and communicate with one another.
There are two types of chat settings:
Safe Chat: the user can type their own chat but there are only certain words allowed by the whitelist.
Regular Chat: where the user can chat any phrase that is not blocked by the filter (no bad words).
An account over the age of 13 is automatically set to regular chat, while an account below the age of 13 is set to safe chat.

If you prefix your chat with a %, the message will only be visible to players on your team. For example:

Bubble chat is the type of chat you see above players' heads. It can only be seen in places with BubbleChat enabled (Players.BubbleChat == true).
In order to enable bubble chat, go to one of your places and select the "Configure Place" button. Scroll down to "Chat Settings" and select "Bubble Chat" or "Both" - selecting just "Bubble Chat" will mean there will be no chat log, just bubbles above the players' heads. "Both" will make it so there will be a chat log, AND bubble chat.
Classic chat is the type of chat you see in the upper-left corner. It can only be seen in places with Classic Chat enabled (Players.ClassicChat == true).
In order to enable classic chat, go to one of your places and select the "Configure Place" button. Scroll down to "Chat Settings" and select "Classic Chat" - selecting just "Classic Chat" will mean there will be no bubbles above players' heads, just a chat log.
It is also possible to make your own chat GUI using the Chatted event. Some tutorials on this:
