The Messages App is an app on your phone used to privately message other players if you wish to do so. You can also message a friend privately in chat by using the command /w [user] [message] or /whisper [user] [message], but this is a cooler and stylish way to do so, and your messages never disappear and easier to get to until you leave that server, and adds some role-play value.
Upon selecting the messages app, you will be greeted with a list of all the players currently online on that server. You can select any player you wish, and your private messages will appear. If you haven't sent any message yet, this screen will be blank. In order to send a message, click on the bar below that says "Text Message", type out your message with your keyboard, and hit "Send"! This will immediately send a message to the person you wish to send it to. Now just kick back and wait for a response.
There is no limit for the number of messages you can send, so chat as long as you'd like.
