msg = input('Enter your message : ')
count = int(input('Enter the count : '))

input('Enter anything after scanning QR code')

#ths is an error
user = driver.find_element_by_xpath('//span[@title = "{}"]'.format(name))

Seems like there is no user by the name that you have entered. Please confirm that

Instead of using Xpath, can you use id or any other identifier to locate the user element. Also add implicit or explicit wait so that page load can be done properly. 

"NoSuchElementException: Message: no such element: Unable to locate element:" These kind of errors occur when page load takes time or any specific element takes time to load properly. So using Wait or Thread.sleep() might help you.
