In this article you will see how to use the different options in a Blizz Chat. 

The Blizz Chat allows you to exchange text messages with one person or several people in real time. If your contact is currently offline, the message will be received as soon as Blizz is started, even when the application is closed.

The chat is available on the Blizz client itself or under https://go.blizz.com/logon. Please note that when your account is accessed from the link, some options will be limited if the Blizz client is not installed on your computer.

The messages that you send and receive are displayed on the Chat tab on the left.

Blizz groups the messages that you exchange with a contact or a group into conversations. All of your conversations are displayed in a list.

The symbol at the beginning of the conversation shows whether it is a conversation with one person or with several people.

1. One person or a profile picture: Conversation with one person

2. Icon with three persons: Conversation with a group

Note 1: Blizz chats are encrypted end-to-end.

Note 2: Another benefit of creating an account is that you can have up to 50 participants within a group chat, that is with a free account. If you have a Blizz license, you can have up to 300 participants in your group chat.
