18.7.2022 I Google Chat

Do you want to create a common discussion platform for the entire organization, even globally? Earlier this year, Google enabled ways to increase communication and collaboration across different parts of organizations. The latest update makes it possible to add up to 8,000 people to the shared Spaces space in Google Chat, so that collaboration between different parts of the organization is smooth and enjoyable.

  1. Go to Google Chat or your Gmail account.

  2. Next to “Spaces,” click Create or find a space + > Create space.

  3. Enter a space name.

  4. Optional: Below the space name, you can add a space description.

  5. Optional: At the top left, click Choose an emoji +. If you don't select an emoji, a default avatar is used.

  6. Enter names or email addresses of people and groups you want to add. You can also select from suggestions. If you use a Google Workspace account, suggestions include everyone in your organization, even if they don't have Google Chat.

  7. Optional: To allow external people to join the space, select Allow people outside your organization to join. If your administrator doesn’t allow this feature, you may not have this option. Important: You can’t change this setting. The option to create spaces that allow guests is only available on Google Workspace accounts.

  8. Click Create.

  9. Optional: To add more people and bots to the space, click Add people & bots. Enter names or emails. Click Send.
