Project Description📖 < 1 min read
In March 2021, Google announced several enhancements to Google Chat on the web (i.e. chat.google.com) and the Chat Progressive Web Application (PWA). At that time, these changes were only launched for domains with the Gmail service turned on.
Beginning June 30, 2021, these changes will roll out to domains with the Gmail service turned off as well. The new interface gives users a consistent and predictable Chat experience across Chat in Gmail and Chat standalone surfaces. It also includes new integrations to help productivity — see the original announcement for more information.
- Admins: There is no admin control for this feature.
- End users: These changes will take place automatically at chat.google.com and in the Chat progressive web app.
- Rapid Release and Scheduled Release domains: Extended rollout (potentially longer than 15 days for feature visibility) starting on June 30, 2021
- Available to Google Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Fundamentals, Education Plus, Frontline, and Nonprofits, as well as Google Workspace Basic and Business customers
