Google has added a new feature to Google to make sure private conversations remain private. The feature lets Businesses decide if their restricted community will be open to everyone at the company, or limited to just employees who receive an invitation.
Google stated that administrators can make restricted communities a default for their organisations. Once a community is created, community owners can manage membership, change settings, or invite other team members to join in. The feature allows employees to create communities open to people outside of their domain, so clients, business partners or agencies can join in the discussion. Users can also share files, photos, videos and events from Google Drive.
Google Plus product manager Michael Cai stated, “Whether it’s designs of your beta product or notes from your team off-site, anything you post will remain restricted to the organization. You can decide if your restricted community will be open to everyone at your company or private, joinable by invitation only. While administrators can set restricted communities as the default for your organization, you can always choose to create communities open to people outside of your domain, so clients, agencies or business partners can join in the discussion.”
“Once a community is created, you’ll be able to share files from Google Drive as well as videos, events and photos,” he adds. “Community owners can easily change settings, manage membership or invite other team members to join and jump into the conversation.”
