Chat Color Won't Change

I am using the ChatService and my custom chat gui to make a bubble chat when a player chats. This works fine, but when I fire the bubble message, the chat color won’t change even if I tell if to make the chat color something other than white? Is this a bug? Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be appreciated. This is the line of code that tells the game to make the bubble chat message (bts it tells it only when someone chats and that works fine). Added variables are on top to help.

local chatservice = game:GetService("Chat")
msgPlr = (coded to the player itself within the function)
msg = (coded as the message to make on the bubble chat)
chatService:Chat(msgPlr.Character.Head, msg, Enum.ChatColor.Red)

Again, this works, but when I try to make the bubble chat color red or anything else like above, it still makes it the default color.

It would help if you posted the entire script rather than just 4 lines.

The new chat system is coded differently. I believe anyways.
