Meeting guests can not use the chat feature on Teams.

Chat in Channel Meetings Is only Available to Team Members.

Please does anyone have any idea about this issue.

    Hi @IBN

    Do you mean guest cannot use chat feature in Teams channel meeting?

    If you set up a channel meeting, the chat is available only to members of that team. Guest have no access to use chat features. In other words, enable a private meeting instead of a channel meeting. In this manner, everyone can access the chat irrespective of the accounts they’re using.

    Meanwhile, please check if guest settings have enabled chat option in Teams admin center
