Overview: Manage Chat for an organization

When you sign up for Hangouts Chat, your organization can communicate in groups or one-on-one, with text and rich media, and in rooms with multiple conversations at the same time.

Get started:  Set up Chat

Do more in fewer steps

You can add content right in the conversation, so team members can interact and discuss items from Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drive links. You can also include web links and upload files from a local drive.

Have hallway conversations from anywhere

The biggest challenges take a group effort. You need partners, contractors, agencies, and clients to move things forward. Create and modify groups dynamically as the work changes so the right people can work together, wherever they are. Rooms keep their conversation history. When someone new joins a room, they can see the full message history of the room.

Know what’s important at all times

Hangouts Chat lets the conversations keep flowing and surfaces what’s important so you can maintain focus. Hold multiple conversation with the same team or people. The most active conversations appear at the bottom, while your other threads stay easily accessible.

Integrate with other systems

Add third-party features and systems to expand what you can do with Hangouts Chat and help get more done.
