Google Chat (formerly known as "Google Hangouts Chat") is an evolution of the classic Google Hangouts chat service, adding additional features that let U-M faculty, staff, and students chat with individuals, send group messages, and engage in team-based collaboration with spaces across the entire university community and externally. (Google Chat replaced classic Google Hangouts in Gmail on July 15, 2020.)
