New "Space Manager" role in Google Chat

June 9, 2022

Google recently introduced a new “Space Manager” role in Google Chat to give you greater control over the management of your Chat spaces. Space creators will be Space Managers by default and can assign this role to additional members in the space, too. Space Managers will appear with a green diamond (Green diamond) next to their name in the chat and member list of the space.
