You require to tap a button near the guest list to commence a direct conversation from the event, whether you are on the web or on your phone.

This will not work with people outside of your organization. You may even have to be patient. Web users on the expeditious release track are in the midst of a 15-day rollout that mutely commenced on September 20th, while mobile users and more cautious companies will have to wait until October 4th.
