If you’re not on Slack, HipChat, GroupMe, Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, SMS or email already and would like to bring some interesting pieces of media to a group you’re in, prepare yourself for what Google’s offering.
It has introduced Spaces, an app that builds in Google Search, Chrome and YouTube to look up and serve most of the content you would share in a small group within the app. It’s available for all Gmail users on iOS, Android, desktop and the mobile web.
We’re not sure how much effort you’ll save without all the app and page switching, but hey, it’s out there. The new app is important to note, though, as it marks Google’s continued integration of its constituent services into apps like its iOS keyboard, Gboard.
Google I/O attendees will be able to “experiment” with Spaces.
