3/22 Enable discovery and sharing of Spaces in Google Chat

Modified on Fri, 23 Dec 2022 at 02:31 PM

22.3.2022 | Google Chat

You can now create spaces in Google Chat that you can share with others in your organization to join via link. 

With this launch, Spaces are no longer restricted to only people added to the conversation. This update allows for the creation of topic-based conversations that can be shared more broadly within an organization. This can be particularly useful for spaces that are oriented around: 

  • Sharing knowledge widely with others, how-to guides and mentoring opportunities. 

  • Organizational and policy updates. 

  • Situations where you need to quickly gather interested folks or those with relevant expertise, for example to investigate an outage. 

  • Cultural and social topics of interest, like reading, sports, or cooking. 

NB! Users can only enable a space to be shareable within an organization at creation. At this time, users cannot enable discovery for existing spaces and share them via link. 

Note that users outside of your organization will not be able to join such a space, even with the shared link.
