Google is introducing improvements for Spaces in Chat to help you better organize people, topics, and projects. 

The improvements include: 

  • Manager role so certain users have greater control over the management of a space. 

  • Space descriptions so users can set context for their spaces. 

  • Space guidelines to ensure safe and effective communication environments. 


The Manager role provides tools to promote healthy conversations and control the availability of the space within an organization. Space creators will be managers by default and can assign other members in the space this role as well. 



Managers can add a description for spaces. This field can be used to describe the purpose of the space.

Space description can be added when creating a space or by selecting “View space details” for an existing space. Space descriptions can be viewed when a user is in the “Browse Spaces” view or by selecting “View space details.”


Managers can also describe space guidelines that establish rules and expectations for members to create a safer community experience. 



Availability: All customers


Timeline: 
Space roles: 
Gradual rollout starting on March 8, 2022 

Space Descriptions and Guidelines: Later in March
