Google Spaces happens to be a new and interesting app which the search giant has put on the table ahead of its I/O event that’s supposed to kick off tomorrow. Aimed at delivering a better group sharing experience than the likes of WhatsApp and other similar apps, this offering is available on the web, apart from Android and iOS devices.
What distinguishes Spaces from any other group that you and your friends are a part of is that it has Google’s services built into it. That means Search, YouTube as well as Chrome are accessible from within the app, so there’s no back-and-forth link copying and app-hopping involved.
Anything you wish to share with a particular group of friends can be searched and shared from right within the Spaces app. And then of course, there’s the traditional conversational view which allows you to see what the group is talking about.
You can create different spaces for different conversations to keep them exclusive. For example you can have one for your colleagues at work and another for your drink buddies. These spaces can be created with just one tap, and you can invite people into them via messaging, email, Facebook and other mediums.
Google Spaces also features a nifty search functionality for when you are looking for something that has been shared earlier and gotten buried inside the conversations. Using this tool, you can find articles, videos, comments or even images in a snap.
