Start a new conversation thread in Google Chat

By default, chat rooms have a single stream of unthreaded messages. When you create a room, you can turn on threaded messages instead. Conversation threads help your group discuss separate topics in the same room. 


  • History is always on in threaded rooms.
  • You can’t change this setting after you create the room. 
  1. Go to Google Chat or Gmail.
  2. Under “Rooms,” select a room.
  3. On the bottom, click New thread in [room name].
  4. Enter the message.
  5. Click Send "".

Tip: To view new messages: At the bottom, click New Messages
