Chatting, who doesn’t use it? Both in private life and in professional life, using chat apps are a fast and convenient way to get in touch with others quickly.

So we are very happy that these apps keep on innovating.

Like Google Chat, that recently introduced a new bottom navigation bar within the mobile application on Android & iOS devices. This bar helps you to easily access existing and new key features on mobile.

From now on, you have easy access to the following views:

  • Home: helps you stay on top of all conversions in one unified view, with a filter that allows you to drill down to unread messages.
  • Direct messages: see a compact list of all your 1:1 and group messages, including pinned conversations at the top of the list.
  • Spaces: see a compact list of all your spaces, including pinned conversations at the top of the list.
  • Mentions: helps you easily find messages from conversations and spaces where you’ve been mentioned.
