@gamemaster @MadameCurie There may be more to it for me than you. I am from the US living in the Philippines. Google somehow recognizes me as US, but my "official home" location as the Philippines, and it is this that has caused problems. With a VPN in use, I am unable to access Play Store, YouTube, and other Google owned apps, except Chrome. Although I may be connected to the US, I am unable to buy things in games like Diggy and costs are shown as -.-- and not USD. But off the VPN game purchases can be made and are shown in USD even though I'm connected through the Philippines. I have a USD Google gift card i cannot use because of these stupid Google "rules." And yes, I've tried backing out and reentering the chat. As of yet, nothing brings the chat window back when I'm on a VPN.
