    So they are compatible with the forum software, but are they as good? I want to start a chat group and not necessarily a forum. I like all of the intelligence that is evident in Xenforo forum software and have not found this with other chat software.

    Need I say more?!

    There is no official chat function, either core or first party add-on.

    Because they have focused on the core forum product.

    Because the software is named XenForo and not XenChat

    If you want a chat group, then a forum script is not really what you are looking for. Look for a chat script that you can run standalone on a web page. Several good chat scripts have been mentioned (one of which is XenForo specific and is more of a shout box than chat script that has true rooms, etc).

    It uses the server excessively, not many customers would use it for long, with XenForo or any other forum software.
    Tracy suggested a solution:

    To offer a chat system, XF also needs to offer server/hosting solutions since chats are resource hungry, especially when there are many people online at the same time. That being said, it wouldn't happen, and there is a greater chance to have a CMS system than official chat system.

    I agree! I would like to have a chat in the core!

    Please, no.... chat is not indexed and it distract users to post.
    XenForo is a CMS indeed.

    If you want to start a big chat service, then the answer is IRC with a web front end of some kind. Trying to do a web-centric chat just doesn't work as HTTP was never designed for realtime content delivery.

    Chat shouldn't be implemented in the core. There's already the option of private messaging, forum posts and profile posts. A chat would decrease the activity on the forum.

    Invision Power did that and users always post.
