In a space, you can communicate directly or collectively with members. Direct messages are for direct communication and rooms are for collective communication. Rooms enable secure communication with selected or all space members.
Inside a space, tap Chats to view all your direct messages. Tap compose message to create a new people chat.
Using Chats, you can exchange information and files just like a chat message, but inside a space. All your chat messages inside a space are listed on the Chats tab.
When you create a Space, the General and Hangout rooms are created by default.
You can share information and files with room participants by posting audio clips, video messages, or any other file inside a room. A room enables easy sharing of files and content. It also promotes communication between room participants over a common subject.
Within a room, you can post messages and add comments to communicate. To comment on a posted message, tap the message to open the message, and then post a comment in the compose message field. In addition, you can tap if you like the room message. You can also Set a Reminder, Share a copy, and Follow Post by tapping the Expand icon
You can view files shared with you or by you, with the members of the room. When you click the file, the name of the sender is displayed along with the size of the file. You can also view the chat message that the file was a part of.
