Get someone’s attention by @mentioning them. Type @ before the person’s name and matching names will display as you type (Figure 1):

Note: You can @mention multiple people simultaneously.

You can also mention @all or @online in chats with less than 30 members (Figure 3 and Figure 4):

When you send your message, the person you @mention will receive a red alert in their notifications. Likewise, if someone @mentions you, it appears in your notifications in red too (Figure 5):

Your mentions appear in highlighted red to help you identify where you are tagged in a message (Figure 6):

If you are mentioned in a public room where you are not a member, you will receive the notification but you will not be able to see the message unless you join the room (Figure 7, Figure 8 and Figure 9):
