Nice, but for communities unuseable because... User have to register on Minnitchat... No chance to set userprofile-links ....

Tested for some weeks, all good! Easy installation, customization, support and nice code quality! unfortunately the registrations are not integrated with wordpress but requires a Minnit account for more feature.

As the title implies it is the best user chat bar none I have found. There may be as good paid plugins which I haven't tried and incidentally they offer paid subscriptions for those who need them but their free tier is great offering up to 100 simultaneous users, one on one, rooms, subrooms, 14 day msg retention and their support is excellent. Nothing I have tried comes close. Worth a try to see if it meets your needs.
