Search Gmail for an available space

There are two ways to use Gmail to find a space to join a topic of interest.

Use the Gmail search bar to find a space

  1. Open Gmail.
  2. In the search bar, enter keywords on topics that you want to find.
  3. Below the search bar, you can filter results by Mail, Messages or Spaces
    • Choosing Spaces will narrow down your results to space names or descriptions that match the keywords that you search for.
  4. Use the drop-down filter to choose from:
    • All spaces
    • Spaces that I have joined
    • Spaces that I haven't joined
  5. If you're using a work or school account, you'll also see a drop-down filter to choose from:
    • Internal and external: Spaces that organisation and non-organisation members can join
    • Internal: Spaces that only allow organisation members to join
    • External: Spaces that allow non-organisation members to join

Use the left panel in Gmail to find a space

    • Next to 'Spaces', click Create or find a space "".
    • Next to ‘Chat’, click Start a chat "".
  3. Click Browse spaces.
