Google had recently added restricted communities feature to make sure private conversations remain private. The feature lets businesses decide if they want to open their community for everyone at the company, or keep it limited to a few employees only. The new feature allows administrators to make restricted communities a default for their organisations. Owners can manage membership, invite other team members to join in or share videos/files with employees.
