New Integrated Gmail Coming Soon

In the coming weeks, Google will release a new integrated Gmail experience. The new Gmail puts email, chat (Google Chat), video collaboration (Google Meet), tasks and document collaboration into a single workspace. Initially, integrated Gmail will be released on the web version of Gmail (apps.georgetown.edu (new window)) and the official Android & iOS Gmail apps.

Members of a Room will be able to chat, collaborate on documents, assign tasks to each other and launch a team video call.
