Google introduces conversation summaries in spaces chats


Google Workspace has introduced conversation summaries for messages in “Spaces,” which will summarise conversations for Premium users.


“When these summaries are available, a card with automatically generated summaries is shown as users enter Spaces with unread messages. The card includes a list of summaries for the different topics discussed in Spaces. This feature is enabled by our state-of-the-art abstractive summarization model, Pegasus, which generates useful and concise summaries for chat conversations,” google said.

According to TechCrunch, in larger Workspaces, these Chats conversations can be difficult to keep up with unless users check their Spaces frequently for new Chats conversations.


The Workspace Spaces Chat conversation summary will appear at the top of any unread chatter in the Chats conversation.


According to the report, by clicking on the summary of the Spaces Chats, users will be taken directly to the conversation, even if it is already visible and the conversation summary has only summarised a few lines of the Chats conversation.

To turn the conversation summary on and off, users will need to go on Google Chat, then click Settings > Conversation summary and then tick or untick the box next to ‘show summaries in spaces that have many unread messages.
