Group messaging is a major component, as you’re able to hold conversations about everything that you share with others. The initial draw is probably for consumers who want to chat about all the nifty stuff they find online, but there’s also a drop of productivity thrown in considering that you can share and talk about articles clipped from the web.

The product feels like it overlaps a little with many other existing Google , but that’s how the company tends to roll. It throws out a bunch of new products then iterates them over time to more align with how the user base actually responds.

The story behind the story: Google has done a lot of work with new and updates recently to more tightly integrate its services on the web as well as and iOS. The company recently added new extensions for Inbox and Google Keep that make it easier to save and share links. Given that the company’s revenue is still tied deeply to Google search and services, expect more tools and improvements to existing ones to keep coming to both platforms.
