Join a room

When you’re invited to join a room, Google Chat may send you an email notification. You get the notification if the person inviting you to the room requests it. You can preview the room and see its message history before you join.

You get notifications and can preview the room even if you're invited with your personal Google Account or the room is owned by another organisation.
