I was in a recurring meeting a couple weeks ago and afterward people were chatting so I guess I clicked to leave the chat in order to not keep getting notified. This week I rejoined the meeting and can see the screenshare but I can't chat.
The chat window shows what people were saying in the meeting from a couple weeks ago and the last like says <me> has left the meeting.
Below that where I would normally type it says You can't send messages because you are not a member of the chat.
So since I'm in the meeting, how the heck do I rejoin the chat? I checked all the buttons and don't see anything to Join Chat since I already have the chat window open, I just can't use it.

Yeah, I've had the same experience, and couldn't find any way to solve it (chat button doesn't help). Open a support case and report this, seems like a bug to me. I can report it directly, but since I'll be off for 10 days or so, I probably wont be able to follow up on it. Or we can just volunteer Chris :)

@Mike Boehm - I have the exact same issue. Left a monthly meeting last month due to the chat continuing after the meeting and distracting me. This month I cannot do anything with the chat because of this issue.
There needs to be a way to rejoin the meeting chat after leaving. If I had know this was going to happen, I wouldn't have left the meeting chat last month.

@Chris Webb I can rejoin the MEETING just fine. It's the chat that no longer accepts input nor does it update. The last post is from the month prior and in the field where I would type my message is, "You can't send messages because you are not a member of the chat."

@Chris Webb I can't know for sure but I'm 99% positive that someone in that meeting I had this morning used the chat. There were over 120 people in the meeting. I'd be shocked if no one used the chat because it's usually full of posts during each monthly meeting. That's why I had left the chat the month before. People wouldn't stop posting after the meeting end. Anyway, I've asked on our local teams site as well.

I just tested on a meeting that is running right now, web and desktop, and cannot access the chat. I did send a screenshot using the "Report a problem" option in Teams.

There is a User Voice issue for this problem here.

@Chris Webb I had same problem - turned off the chat on a recurring meeting a week ago because people kept chatting after the meeting was done and annoying me, then when I joined the meeting today, I couldn't chat. Drove me nuts, but after the meeting, I did what you did. Rejoined that meeting (even though it was past the scheduled time) and lo and behold, chat was there again. Why not there the first time I joined today, who knows, but seems like a bug as it's not consistent.

@Mike Boehm I'm having the same problem. Since it's saying "you're not a member", I wonder if an owner has to specify a person as a member.

@Mike Boehm I have the issue. Unable to chat or see the chat while during the recurring meeting. I get the same behavior when joining the meeting from the Teams calendar as well as the original calendar invitation in Outlook.
