Comprehensive communication platform: Google combines all services under one roof. New workspace features show how Google envisions the future of work.
Google is building a comprehensive communication platform. Chat, Mails, Meet & Spaces will be merged from today. With this, the company continues to build its vision of hybrid working from Google Workspace. Screenshots show the renovation, which begins immediately for paying customers.
GMail has been around for 17 years and the platform is now changing like never before. Initially, Rooms were renamed Spaces, which is to become one of the other main components of the new platform. Google announced the upcoming update on Twitter.
This should simplify collaboration in teams. GMail, or Google Workspace, would be the central point of contact for all Google services. So the company explains in one Blogpost:
Instead of starting an email chain or scheduling a video meeting, teams can come together directly in a Space to move projects and topics along, whether it’s a team of 10 for ‚2022 Roadmap Planning‘ or a team of 1,000 for the ‚Company-wide All-Hands.‘ With Spaces, teams can share ideas, collaborate on documents, and manage tasks from a single place. Because all their work is preserved for future reference, team members can easily jump in and contribute at a time that works best for them, seeing a full history of the conversations, context, and content along the way.
In a new sidebar on the edge of the web app, navigation between the various applications is to be simplified.
Spaces are unique in that they are tightly integrated with Google Workspace tools like Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, and Tasks, providing a better way for people to engage in topic-based discussions, share knowledge and ideas, move projects forward and build communities and team culture,
the company explains the connection between the various services. This means that in the future users will be able to “call” other users with Google Meet, but within the Gmail app. This makes GMail the first app in which calls can be received and started. The function should follow in the Standalone Meet App. They also have great visions for the future of the platform. Google has announced the following features for the roll-out:
- Easy navigation: A flexible user interface offers an overview of all services.
- Spaces discover: The content from spaces can, for example, be made available company-wide so that everyone can contribute to projects.
- Improved search: The search in Spaces enables you to search in the entire workspace.
- Reply to messages: There will be the option to reply to every message in a space, which will create exciting discussions.
- Security und Admin Features: Various security features allow content moderation and the creation of rules.
For the roll-out, Google has announced that it will initially gradually supply the various workspace package customers. Only then do the private users follow: inside. All changes that are imminent can be saved in the Blogpost be understood.
