It’s common nowadays for smartphone users to move their group chats to apps like WhatsApp that support easier multimedia sharing. Now, Google aims to simplify group sharing with its newly launched app, Spaces. ”Sharing things typically involves hopping between apps to copy and paste links. Group conversations often don’t stay on topic, and things get lost in endless threads that you can’t easily get back to when you need them. [On Spaces] You can create a space with just one tap for any topic and invite anyone via messaging, email, a social network, or whatever way you like,” wrote Spaces product director Luke Wroblewski. The app essentially comes with built-in Google Search, YouTube and Google Chrome, integrating all your Internet searches for links, pictures and videos in a clean interface so you don’t have to switch out of the app.
