10/22 Hold separate conversations in Google Chat spaces with in-line threading

18.10.2022 I Google Chat


In Google Chat you can now reply directly to any message in new spaces and some existing spaces. 

This creates a separate in-line thread where smaller groups of people can continue a conversation on a specific topic. You can find and navigate to the threads you’re following or where you’re specifically mentioned with a new thread panel on the right side of the conversation.


With in-line threading you can reply to a specific message in the space, while not disturbing the flow of the main space. By default, replying in-line will notify the original poster and those who have either been @ mentioned or replied in the thread. Other users will have the ability to subscribe to the chain by opening the in-line replies and selecting “Follow.” 


This new feature contains visual indicators, such as a badge for the number of replies, direct @ mentions and when a message is deleted within a thread. With these indicators you`ll stay on top of the latest activity in any given thread.





Availability: Available to all customers.


Timeline: Rapid & Scheduled Release domains: Gradual rollout (up to 15 days for feature visibility) starting on October 17, 2022.
