How can I chat to people in SC2 that are not in my current game?

I konce got a message from another ST2-friend in my game, but I couldn't answer.

I can only chat to "Allies" with Enter or chat to "All" with Shift+Enter but not to a person from outside the currently running game.

Isn't there a button that pops up with the friends list? Or another shortcut?


Press "Enter" then "Tab" until your friend's name appears.

The "Tab" button will cycle through your conversations. This is in my opinion the fastest way to chat.

There's a few different ways.

  • The /w or /m command will work for "whisper" or "message", like /m Decency thanks!
  • Or, you can /r to "reply" to the last person to send you a message, such as /r Playing a game at the moment.
  • Finally, you can open the friends tab in the bottom right which will allow you to message any groups or people that you've interacted with.

If memory serves, the command is /w [your friend's name] [your message].
