Delete a space

When you no longer want to use a space, you can delete it. When a space is deleted, you can’t recover it.


  • You can only delete a space if you have the space manager role.
  • When you delete a space, all messages and tasks in the space are deleted. Permissions on Drive files are removed, but the file isn’t deleted.
  • If you're the last space manager and want to leave, you must make someone else the space manager or delete the space.
  1. On your computer, open Google Chat or Gmail.
    • In Gmail: On the left, click Chat.
  2. Open the space that you want to delete.
  3. At the top, click the space name and then Delete.
  4. To confirm, click Delete.
Tip: If you didn’t create the space, learn how to leave a space.
