Unfortunately, you cannot turn off the chat in Diablo 4 completely, but you still have the option to switch off some messages that may distract you. To do that, you should follow these steps:

  1. First of all, you should go to the Main Menu by pressing the ESC button.
  2. After that, open the "Options" menu.
  3. Next, choose the "Social" tab and scroll down a bit. You are looking for the "Chat Setting" and "Chat Bubbles" sections.
  4. Finally, you have to unselect all the boxes.

If you want to turn on the chat, then you should follow the same steps listed above. Take into account that you are not able to turn off Party, Clan, and Whisper messages.

That's pretty much it. Even though it is impossible to disable the chat in Diablo 4 completely, you can switch off some of the most annoying messages.
