Google, on Wednesday, to help employees announced major advancements that further the company’s vision for hybrid work with a single connected experience in Google Workspace.
Along with new meeting enhancements and conferencing hardware to help organisations bridge the gaps as they navigate new hybrid work environments, these advancements include the rollout of spaces in Chat.
“As some people return to the office, teams need that ability to flexibly collaborate from anywhere, anytime”, said Sanaz Ahari, Senior Director of Product Management at Google Workspace in a statement.
“The innovations we’re bringing to customers today help bridge the gaps of virtual and in-person collaboration. I’m especially excited about spaces, a new, dedicated place in Google Workspace to share information, advance projects, and build community as teammates”, Ahari added.

For everyone can follow along and jump in to contribute at any time, spaces help users to see the full history, context and content of conversations.
The company said, Google will add even more unique features in spaces in the coming weeks and months to help teams stay organised.
Team members can now set their working location in Calendar, regularly or by segmentable working hours in addition to indicating the virtual or physical presence in meeting invites.
Meet calling complements Meet’s more structured, scheduled video meetings and better supports the ebbs and flows of hybrid work by allowing for more spontaneous connections
Google intends to bring Meet calling to all the natural endpoints in Google Workspace where you’d initiate an ad-hoc call including chats, contact cards, and spaces, the company said.
