In Google Chat, you can now create personal tasks from individual or group messages. These will then be viewable by you in Google Tasks, the quick-access side panel, and Google Calendar if the task has a set date.

This allows you to more easily stay on top of tasks that come out of conversations with your coworkers via Chat. Once you’ve created a personal task, you can add a due date and description, then quickly navigate back to the conversation. 

How to:

  1. Hover over a Chat message and click three dots

  2. Select “Add to Tasks”

  3. Optional: Add a date for the task.
