Path of Exile: Harvest launches on Xbox One and PlayStation in just a few days! While you are likely aware of most of the features of Harvest, we've been keeping one console feature up our sleeves and are now happy to confirm that textual chat channels are now a feature of Path of Exile on console!

This long-awaited feature is something that we've been working really hard at and we're happy to see it finally becoming a reality. Thank you so much for your patience while we've been working on this!

Messages can be sent from the 'Menu' screen, items can be added to the end of your message from your inventory using L3+B keybind (Xbox One) and L3+Circle keybind (PlayStation 4). And of course, item linking is fully supported.

We hope that you'll enjoy getting to know your fellow exiles and enjoy a richer multiplayer experience on console. Harvest launches at 3pm June 24th (PDT). Downtime will begin for deployment at 1pm June 24th.

Also, don't forget that you can win some awesome prizes by defeating Harvest's ultimate boss. Find out more here. Best of luck, everyone!

When you say "textual chat channels" I assume you mean things like global 820? Do we get options for chat like:
1. Load into a set channel automatically.
2. Hide / disable chat (even more specific to hide when not in town or HO).
3. Chat box position and opacity settings.
4. Block / report users.
5. Moderated chat (similar to PC).
6. Any speech to chat (already a thing for Xbox).

1. Changing chat channels is supported, so changing to a channel like global 820 would be supported.
2. Hiding the chat channels is available in the same way as it is on PC.
3. There are settings in the options to adjust the height and width of the chat box.
4. Blocking and reporting users is supported.
5. Chat will be moderated.
6. I will look into the speech to chat.
