By promising to deliver a full experience to business users, Google is working on a new communication app that might bring together other the main features of the tech-giant’s popular platforms, such as Hangout meetings for video conferences and Hangouts Chat for instant messaging, in addition to Gmail and cloud service for files. It means that all the most popular Google features that were promoted individually now will be also available at one single app. The news was reported by The Information

The new app is going through internal tests before being officially launched and available just for Google’s employees and family, but as soon as it will be released the app be available on Google G Suite, the platform that in 2019 had its price increased for SMB companies. 

Google’s main goal with the initiative is to create a solution that could be able to compete with Slack and Microsoft Teams, the biggest solutions available in this market.
