Google has apparently taken note of this and is pitting itself against Slack by taking two of the features from its corporate Workplace app suite — Chat and Rooms — and integrating them into its standard Gmail app. Google Chat allows you to hold chat sessions with friends and groups of friends either on an informal or formal basis. The former can be done just between two people or between several in what Google calls a group conversation.
The latter is done via a separate space that Google currently calls a Room. A Room, on the other hand, is for more long-term conversations. Each Room has its own name, remains available for people to leave and re, will send out notifications, and can share files. If this sounds useful to you, then the first thing you need to do is activate Google Chat for your Gmail.
Currently, at least, you need to do it separately on your browser and on your mobile device.
Any contacts with whom you ly had chats with via Hangouts will appear in the new Chat box; click on their names, and a small pop-up window in the lower left will show you those chats. Before we go into the specifics of how to use Google Chat, you may notice some other small differences after the refresh.

A series of icons to Just start with chat side or below the entry field lets you add emoji, a file, add a file from Google Drive, start a video meeting essentially, starting Google Meetand schedule an event.
