Group Chat allows multiple people to carry on conversations together using Google Chat. While it is very easy to use, a lot of people aren’t quite sure how to get started. Check out the video to learn more!

1. Click on a Contact from your Chat bar

2. When the Chat window opens, click the third icon from the left

  • This icon looks like a silhouette with a + sign next to it.
  • When you hover over this icon it should say ‘Add people to this chat.’

3. A text box should appear, where you can add from your contact list

  • To add a contact, type their name or email address into the text box and select the appropriate contact.
  • When you have selected all the contacts you wish, click invite.
  • A new window should appear that will serve as a group chat for you and your contacts.
