How am I supposed to enable chat? I assumed if I select someone in the people hub, "chat" should come up along with text, email, etc. But it does not.
Apps like WhatsUp won't work for me because people I want to chat with would have to also have the app, correct? Every app I've looked at very few people I know also have it.
I'm very confused by what should be pretty simple.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

3rd party chat applications like WeChat, Whatsapp, GroupMe do not integrate into the people hub.
Apps like WeChat, Whatsapp, GroupMe when you install they look at your current contact list and list people who also have the app.
You have to be in the 3rd party app to chat to others. No integration in the People Hub yet. Let's see what happens later on.

For now, the most efficient WP to WP chat is through messenger. (soon to be Skype)
It's in your text message area. There's a symbol on lower right to switch to chat instead of text messaging.
Eventually Skype will be integrated into the People Hub so that it does the same thing. It's replacing ms messenger
It would be nice if all chat apps integrated with the People Hub, but I could see how it could get complicated if more than one app tries to access the same chat service.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook (say you're from here or I may not accept)

You're right though, imagine if the people and messaging hubs can be extended like the lens apps for camera, now that would be awesome. All the social media integrated into one place.
