Minecraft has become a huge draw for many creative Windows users, allowing players to build complex worlds and let their imagination run wild, with a multiplayer mode so that players can get together and create their own online societies. The problem is that from time to time, they often find themselves unable to talk to each other because of the ‘Can’t chat in Minecraft‘ error.

Here’s why chat in Minecraft doesn’t work

The main reason why the ‘Can’t chat in Minecraft” error occurs is quite simple: the game comes with a set of default settings in the multiplayer section and usually, the chat setting is set to command only. This allows you to input commands but does not let you chat with other users or interact with them.

Can’t chat in Minecraft [FIX]

To fix the ‘Can’t chat in Minecraft” error,  go to Options > Chat settings and change the settings from Command Only to Shown. This will let you talk and share your thoughts with all the other creative Minecraft players.

If chat is still unavailable, disconnect from the game and then enable the connection again.

This is the most common fix you can find for this situation. We hope this article will help you fix the Minecraft chat issue. If you have come across other methods to solve this problem, please list the troubleshooting steps in the comment section bellow.
