Google has come up with some modifications to its Workspace suite of apps and services.
Workspace, earlier known as G Suite, offers all the same Google services like Gmail, Docs, Chat, Drive, Calendar, etc with deeper integrations between different apps.
Moreover, users with personal Google accounts will also be able to access a new premium offering that will enable premium capabilities, including smart booking services and personalised email marketing.
Google’s main focus remains on delivering consumers, workers, teachers and students alike an equitable approach to collaboration, while still providing flexibility. This will further help the users to take their own approach to communication and collaboration.
To begin with this new experience, users will have to switch from Hangouts to Google Chat.
How to turn on Google Chat?
Head to Gmail > Settings > View All Settings > Chat and Meet > Toggle “On” next to “Chat” > Save Changes.
Furthermore, you will encounter several interface changes while switching from Hangouts to Google Chat.
As the new changes to Workspace aim to make collaboration between users more convenient.
