When you see the title, the first question that should pop up in your head is, “Can we even do that?” That’s how rarely used the feature is. Despite allowing direct collaboration on a document in Google Chat, not many users know how to use this function and demonstrate it the right way.
Collaborating on an individual document on Google chat ensures clear communication, transparent discussion and enables the users to get prompt answers to their queries. With just a single click, the users can create documents, spreadsheets and even slides to collaborate with other users and finish the tasks in a unified manner.
Since the feature is quite underrated and not many users know about it, we have sorted out all the detailed steps involved on how to create documents directly in Google chat for easier access and work experience without interruptions.
- Open Google Chat and navigate to the group:
- Next, navigate to the right of the message box, click the Create New Document icon:
- Next, in the pop-up window, give your document a name and click “Share”:
- Next, you’ll see the Google Chat room slide over to make room for the Docs or Sheets document on the right. If you create a Google Slides document, this will open in a new tab.
