WARFRAME, like other online games possesses an in-game Chatting system. It is within this feature that a player can communicate with other players. The regions players are in will determine which chat servers they will enter. These are:
Squad chat, allows you to chat with your fellow squad members in a mission.
Hub chat, allows you to chat within a player hub's instance, such as Cetus or Relay.
Clan chat, allows you to chat with fellow clan members.
Alliance chat, allows you to chat with fellow clan members belonging to the same alliance.
Region chat, allows you to chat with anyone within the same region.
Council chat, allows you to chat with fellow Tenno Council members.
Recruiting chat, allows you to recruit fellow Tenno into a squad for a certain activity.
Trading chat, allows you to look for any trades to make as well as post your own.
There is also a filtering system under Region, Recruiting, and Trading chat to omit or include terms that you are looking for in a particular channel.
Players who receive chat suspensions will be prevented from accessing the chat channel that they had acted inappropriately in or all chat channels depending on the severity of the offense. These chat suspensions can last from one hour to one week depending on the severity of the offense and repeated violations. Please refer to the official Community Guidelines for chat guidelines.
Sending a message to trading before the cooldown expires yields a message saying "Please limit your advertising to once every __ seconds." The number it pulls from, however, is not the frequency at which a user can post but rather the amount of time left until next post.
We have added 2 new features that allow you to instantly share 2 major parts of the Warframe experience:

Warframe’s chat UI has been given a complete overhaul, including new features and more intuitive settings for private conversations and player searching. We will continue to expand upon the chat UI in the coming updates. The following changes have been made to the chat UI:
Chat has received a visual reskin.
Tabs are now icons for default channels and text for private messages, separating chat channels from conversations you’re having with other players.
An Emojis tab has been added to the chat UI! Share your feelings without words using Emoji’s you know and love, in addition to Warframe exclusive Emojis. Enjoy! :D
Emoji’s can also be auto-completed with the : command.
Emoji color settings has been added to the Chat Options menu.
Auto-complete player name functionality has been added. This tab will open when typing @, and will only show players recently spoken to.
Chat channel notifications will now appear in the chat tab when a player’s name has been mentioned in a channel. This effect will be brief for channels you are currently speaking in, but more prominent for channels you are not currently focused on.
Pressing up and down while in a chat channel will display previous messages you’ve sent.
Maximum character count in the Trade channel is 180.
A whisper button has been added to the player Profile screen.
Added an ‘unstuck’ command to help players escape from areas they would otherwise have had to leave the Mission to escape. The ‘unstuck’ command can ONLY be used when the player is alive, and will teleport the player to their last good position.
The command can be used simply by typing /unstuck
Once the Mission has been completed, you will be required to restart Warframe so that we may receive an appropriate bug report to help identify these problem locations and monitor the use of the unstuck command.
The ‘unstuck’ command does not currently function in the Liset, Dojo or Conclave.
