In addition, the Gmail add-on will allow you to display creation, modification, and last-accessed dates for linked files, while the Hangouts integration will add previews for linked files directly to your chats.
Hangouts Chat is a huge change in direction for the company, representing its first major entrance into the business communication and collaboration space.
Chat is integrated with many of G Suite's productivity and collaboration apps such as Docs, Sheets, Drive and Hangouts Meet. Dropbox is all in favour because it needs to avoid becoming a silo that irritates users and admins alike.
Ritcha Ranjan, director of product management at Google Cloud, said that the objective of the partnership on Google's end is to make G Suite more accessible to users, regardless of the other platforms they're using.
Whether you are on your Windows or Mac OS desktop or Android or iOS device, you can collaborate from anywhere. So members collaborating on a project can upload items directly from Drive and bring them into Google Docs, or Sheets or Slides said Scott Johnston, director of product management at Google in a February 28 blog. Businesses who are already paying for G Suite will get Hangouts Chat for no additional cost, making it an attractive alternative to Slack.
Google Google Hangouts Chat on the smartphone. Hangouts allows users to send and receive instant messages and have group chats across various platforms. Google also brings its artificial intelligence technology to speed up manual workflows to book conferencing rooms and quickly find files by predicting what you might need. You can also install bots that integrate with outside services, like Atlassian Jira or Salesforce CRM.
