You may have noticed that what Google Chat used to call “Rooms” is now called “Spaces”. So far, the change has been subtle. For instance, in your Gmail window in a browser you might find something like this in the sidebar:
You’ll see something very similar if you go to a separate Chat window as well. In the mobile app, it will look something like this:
However, it’s more than a name change. Over time, Google will add more features to Spaces. Spaces will also seamlessly integrate with Calendar, Drive, Tasks and other Google Workspace services to allow for better collaboration and communication.
If your organization or department is still using the classic Google Sites service for a web page, please remember to transition to the new Google Sites interface before the end of the year. Google will phase out classic Sites with new Sites, with updated features and a new interface.
Here are the steps to convert a classic Google Site to use new Google Sites:
Open your Google Site.
Click on the Settings icon (the little gear in the upper right corner.)
Choose Manage site.
In the side menu, choose Convert to new Sites.
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the conversion.
Note that you will need to do this for each individual Google Site you maintain.
