Share your group chats with short links
Group chat participants can now share a link to invite others to join the chat. This is particularly useful for onboarding new team members to a project, or to reach everyone in a mailing list. Rather than adding everyone at once, people can opt-in to the group chat.
Search for groups from your Google Hangouts contacts list
In order to make it easier to get to your group chats, you can also easily find your group conversations by searching for the group name or participant name.
Additional controls to manage group chat access
When team members leave a project, it may be necessary to remove them from group chats. Now, anyone who is directly invited to a chat will be able to remove others from the group chat, removing that person’s access to the chat history and notifying the group participants. Only by being directly invited back by someone already in the group, can the former member rejoin the chat.
