Chat platform built for teams
Chat makes it easy for teams to get work done in one place. From direct messages to group conversations, Chat helps teams to collaborate easily and efficiently. Take group work to the next level with shared chat, files and tasks.
All of your messages in one place
Chat is available as a standalone app, or right in Gmail. Easily create virtual rooms to keep projects on track. Shared chat — including threaded conversations, shared files and tasks help you keep your team on the same page.
Use Chat to collaborate on content with Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Easily find past conversations or files with Google’s search. Start a video call, set up a calendar invite and connect with your team right in Chat.
