    Don't know if this is possible ,however, worth an ask.
    Occasionally I'll get a chat bubble at the bottom of my screen and I click on it and the person sending it's name will appear but I can't see what they have written or reply to it because all that's displayed is the name of the person .

    Is it possible for this feature to be available for mobiles on here ? (I gather from messaging someone yesterday who sent me one ,I sent them a private message ,that it doesn't work on mobiles .

    No worries if it's too complicated or will be too expensive to implement , just an idea because I spend 99% of my time on my mobile and my laptop is very rarely used anymore .

    The answer may be to sign in on your laptop and then disable the mini chat by going to the Options symbol at the bottom and select "Offline"

    You could also install CometChat on your phone and access mini chat that way - it can be handy.

    Very simply turn the phone on the side so the screen turns too so it's horizontal position.

    Yes ,as simple as that , I don't now why or how but it seems to work on my phone too .

    If you don't have a phone that the screen spins then it won't work .
    This is my first phone that the screen moved and I turned that function off because it was annoying me at times ... well until yesterday that is when I actually saw a benefit in it :)

    I have found the same thing. Just keep the view zoomed out and it should work.
