Google is also introducing a new feature called Meeting Rooms, which works in a similar way to Microsoft Teams Rooms.
Google chat differs from meeting rooms in that it is temporary and can disappear quickly, but meeting rooms are more permanent and are suitable for formal business meetings.
You can also create as many meeting rooms and chat rooms as you want and use them directly from the Gmail application on your phone or computer.
How to use Google Chat on mobile phones:
You can activate these new features on your mobile phone by following these steps:
Head to the Gmail app, then tap on the three dots to access settings.
After that choose your application and then choose the general settings, and when you reach this menu, you will find the option to show chat and rooms.
When you’re done enabling these features, close the app and then reopen it to get it working straight away.
After that, you will find the application interface is slightly different, as you will find in front of you a new tab at the bottom to use chat and rooms.
You can use Google Chat right after clicking on its tag, then search for a specific user or create a new room.
You can create a new chat group by adding more users after adding the first user.
Rooms also work in a similar way to chat, but the main difference is that with rooms you need to create the room and then name it, and then add the users.
You can send a room invitation to anyone in your contacts or via their email.
Activate chat and rooms via the browser:
You can also activate the chat feature directly through the Gmail email website, by following the following steps:
Go to your personal page in Gmail, then access the settings, and then click on View all settings.
Then choose Chat from the Settings menu from the top, then choose Google Chat instead of the classic Hangouts app.
You can change where you chat with these settings as well, and when you’re done save the settings.
You will see the chat app available after the page has finished updating.
You can start chatting by searching for his name via the search box at the top of the screen.
You can also start rooms from the list on the left side of the screen.
