1. What does JAM stand for in messages?

Just a minute

If you need to pause an activity, such as a game or conversation, you can send "JAM" to the other gamers, partners, etc., to say, "just a minute." It's similar to "hold on a second" (HOAS) and a little bit longer than the JAS acronym.

Most people use JAM when time is a factor when texting or messaging online in a real-time conversation or game. For example, if you are texting with your friend about school, but your mom needs to talk to you briefly, you might text your friend, "JAM. Gotta talk to the mother." Or, if you are gaming and need to take a restroom break, you might message other gamers, "JAM, gotta go take a leak."
