    Can you say: Why haven't you been replying in/to the group chat?

    Can you say:

    Why haven't you been replying in/to the group chat?

    Are both okay?

    Re: Can you say: Why haven't you been replying in/to the group chat?

    No, I don't think so. (Neither.)

    Perhaps:

    Why haven't you been posting there?

    or

    Why haven't you been participating?

    or

    Why haven't you been in the chat room?

    What about when talking about other people:

    Why haven't they been replying in/to the group chat?

    I don't participate in group chats, but I do text. I have heard:

    Why didn't you respond to my text?

    or

    Why didn't you text me back?

    I created a group chat for my friends and I. And some of them are not replying to any of the the other members.

    How come you and MikeNewYork have a difference of opinion to my question?

    I can't explain everything. (It does bother me when we disagree, because Mike is always right. )

    Yes, but you guys are both native English speakers, no?

    Yes, but that doesn't mean we agree on everything all the time. (No two people always agree on everything.)

    I find both OK.

    Why haven't you been replying in the group chat [that we've been having]?
    Why haven't you been replying to the group chat [messages]?

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
