Previously, Hangouts served as the Workspace equivalent of WhatsApp, facilitating communication through individual and group chats. Rebranded as Google Chat, the service remained accessible through a dedicated app and within Gmail on Android devices.

The incoming update, revealed by AssembleDebug, centers around functionalities within Google Chat’s “Spaces.” Spaces offer a dedicated environment for group communication and project management.
