>> Is Party lobby chats an option to create a Clan chat with a short (1-2 days) history?
Yes, PlayFab Party is well-suited to power voice and text communications for social experiences for your game and supports a wide variety of communication topologies. The “constrained to ‘teams’ or game-defined ‘channels’ “ topology is suitable for Clan chat. However, about the short (1-2 days) history functionality, one thing to note is that all chat or data messages are conceptually from one peer device or user directly to others, which means that PlayFab Party is only responsible for establishing “direct connections” peer to peer and won’t be able to automatically store chat history. You may need to store chat history in the client-side, then upload them to PlayFab Entity groups(Short or long term chat channels can be defined as an entity group.) or your own custom servers and find a way to manage them.
