Google just announced a new iOS, Android, desktop and mobile web app named “Spaces” that it hopes will improve group sharing. The idea is really awesome, and we hope it lasts longer than some of Google’s other group projects. Anyone remember Google Wave?
The name “Spaces” is perfect for the app. Basically, you and a bunch of friends or colleagues share a single “space.” In it, you can share all sorts of stuff you find around the Web, like images, videos and articles, Google said. Then everyone in the group can start to talk about that piece of information that was just shared. And, since it’s Google, obviously it’s really easy to search for pieces of information that were previously shared inside Spaces.
It’ll also play a role during I/O 2016 this week.
“We’ll also be experimenting with Spaces this week at Google I/O,” Google Spaces product director Luke Wroblewski said. “We’ve created a space for each session so that developers can connect with each other and Googlers around topics at I/O, and we’ve got a few surprises too. If you’re joining us in person at I/O, make sure you install Spaces on Android or iOS before you arrive!”
