A new Google Workspace feature automatically suggests a chat shortcut to talk to the participants in your scheduled meetings.
Busy schedules may at times lead to overlapping meetings and the need to quickly tell the attendee(s) of your next appointment that you will be running late. And when you are running late for an important meeting, time is really of the essence.

To help out, Google has included a handy feature in Google Workspace, that enables users to quickly access a group or 1:1 chat with the person (or people) involved in the next meeting scheduled on Google Calendar.
As part of the feature, Google Chat automatically creates a suggested conversation shortcut that can be found at the top of the Chat section in Gmail on mobile and web – and in Google Chat on mobile.
The suggested shortcuts appear 10 minutes before a scheduled meeting and stick around for another 10 minutes after a meeting has ended. This time is usually quite useful to share minutes, information, and files about a meeting that just took place.
The new feature is available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers. Users on a personal Google Account, on the other hand, do not have access to it.
