Windows Meta App no longer has the ability to send messages to friends?

Level 2

My meta app for windows (running windows 11) use to have chat on the app, this is the app that you would connect your link cable through and test the cable, buy games....etc... basically the windows version of the meta mobile app. I use to be able to read and write messages to my friends from the app but now I no longer see this option. Did anyone else notice this? Is there a different app or something that I need to download I just cant imagine that they would remove that feature?

This is an problem of all users on PC app  when they are updated to v46.

Meta has just cut out the chat and I'm realy upset about that.

I use this chat also a lot and miss it badly😥

What a dumb decision by them.
