Stay connected with your department or group using Google Chat!

Google Chat is an instant messaging tool that helps groups of people coordinate their communication. Chat works in your computer browser and in mobile apps for Android and iOS. Chat keeps all your messages in sync no matter which devices you use, even if you switch between them.

Rooms can be created for groups of people to chat. Or create a watercooler room for people to join for lighter fare.  Do you often send emails to your entire team? Chat may be a better option for quick discussions.

Download the app for your mobile devices.  Search for Google Chat..the app is called “Google Hangouts Chat”.


The best instructions for using Chat are here on Google’s help page but of course you can also ask for assistance from your friends in OIT by emailing [email protected]
