Soon the update to Unity on all platforms will be mandatory. This is necessary for the new game features, which will be released very soon. You will be prompted to update when starting the game and forwarded to the Play Store/App Store for download. Then all players will be in the same chat again.
Speaking of chat: we are working on exchanging the chat system with a more potent one.
We are aware that not everything is working smoothly yet. Unfortunately, so far we couldn’t fix the issues on Android 7 and lower. These are connected to global changes at Google in connection with certificates that are not present on older devices. Players who are able to update to a higher Android version should consider doing that.
Thank you for your patience!
