Just experienced this first hand, i'm lucky my team was willing to contort to me taking a role and being unable to see calls. i hope this bug is fixed soon.
While my chat was fixed as soon as we loaded, i had a discussion with our team. It appears that the bug prevents chat from being recieved OR SENT since noone saw any messages i sent.
