To make my game follow the Content Agreement of console, I want to disable the in-game chat for all console users. How can I do that?

You can call SetCoreGuiEnabled of StarterGui to toggle CoreGuis. If you want to disable the chat, you can call it with Enum.CoreGuiType.Chat like so:

game:GetService("StarterGui"):SetCoreGuiEnabled(Enum.CoreGuiType.Chat, false)

If using the default Lua chat, this will be done for you. CanChatWith will return false for all console users, as if chat was disabled in their privacy settings.

As mentioned above, this should be done for you automatically. If it however is not, you are also free to disable the Chat CoreGui via SetCoreGuiEnabled. If you have a console branch of your game that console users play separately from the computer(/mobile) version of your game, the best idea is to prevent the chat scripts from loading at all with LoadDefaultChat.
