Google recently released their new messaging platform called “Google Hangouts Chat” which allows better collaboration between organization members.
Hangout chats support team chat rooms, threaded conversations and sophisticated searches that allow companies to manage their projects from one place.
Chat can be used to speed up the small tasks that can bog down a team working from different locations, such as searching for files or even things like booking conference rooms (amongst other very routine tasks). This is integrated into the G-suites productivity apps like Docs, Sheets, Drive, and Hangouts, all of which are great apps that can help remote working teams or individuals (such as those who use Ellyot) to collaborate effectively and achieve their goals!
These apps, including the new Hangout Chat, are great ways to keep productivity high when working remotely as they can allow for effective communication and help a team work in sync so that everyone is on the same page and can work together effectively.
