Google Spaces is an innovative social service that can give you unprecedented control over your conversations, but only if you know how to use it.
Google last week announced a slew of new products, services and initiatives, including Allo, Android N, Assistant, Daydream, Duo, Home and Instant Apps. Nearly all of them are “catch-up” products — Google’s versions of products that other companies have already shipped. And all of them are coming out later in the year.
But one Google announcement alone is both unique and currently available: Google Spaces.
The Spaces launch inspired confusion and criticism. After all, why launch a social service when Google already has Google+, Hangouts and social features inside many of its other services, such as YouTube (not to mention the new social products unveiled last week at Google I/O)? Does the world really need another social product?
