Google is adding a new button on Google Calendar events to let users easily start a chat with other meeting attendees.
Google is introducing a new button on the mobile and desktop version of Google Calendar that allows meeting attendees to quickly open a chat window directly from the event page itself.
Up until now, meeting attendees have only been able to email each other through an email icon found next to the list of meeting participants.

The new button will appear next to the guest list on the Calendar event and is meant to improve group communication.
Users can now quickly start a chat with other meeting participants before, during, and after a meeting takes place. However, only those attendees that are part of the same organization will be automatically included in the chat. If the meeting is held with additional external participants, they will not be part of the chat group.
The added capability, which will be toggled on by default for both admins and end-users, comes as a result of Google integrating the recently rebranded Chats within Gmail.
The new feature is already being gradually rolled out on mobile and the web. It will be available to all Google Workspace customers and G Suite Basic and Business customers before the third week of October.
