How to use Google Spaces
Google Spaces is a service that aims to make group sharing easier, but it might be complicated when you first see the Spaces. Here is the tutorial for the Google’s latest service.
How to Create a Space
Space is like the groups on FaceBook Messenger. You can create a Space for different purposes. For example, you can create a space for your buddies from the college or a space for a project that you are currently working on. The name and the purpose of the space is up to you.
1. Go to the Google Spaces
( Web version on the left: Mobile App on the right )
2. Click on the “Create a Space” button
Well, it is obvious. Just click on the “Create a Space” button.
How to Edit a Space
1. Select a Space
First thing to do is to select the space that you want to edit.
2. Click on the three dots
If you are already using any Google App ( well, actually that is all of us ), you are familiar with the three dots. Just click on that which is located on the top right corner of the space.
( Again, web version on the left: Mobile App on the right )
3. Click on “Customize Space” button
Well, it is also clear. It is not a rocket science so I guess there is nothing to explain in this step. Right?
4. Change the cover picture or the Space name
First of all, you can either choose one of the built-in covers or use your own cover. However, if you choose one of the Google’s cover, than you can also change its color.
If you want to change the name, you should click on the text near the pencil. Again, you do not have to be a genius to understand that.
How to Add People to Spaces
Since Spaces is a platform to share links, you would want to add your friends.
1. Click on the “Invite Via” button
Just click on that button.
2. Select one of the ways
There are three options. You can either invite people by sending them a link, or just simple over Email or FaceBook.
How to Add a Video From YouTube
First of all, if you want to share a video from YouTube within the service, it is only available on its mobile apps. Otherwise, you will need to copy the link of the video ( which is what all of us are doing ) and then paste it to the space.
1. Click on the blue button
It is also a simple step. Just click on the blue pencil button that is located at the bottom of the screen.
2. Select the YouTube icon
Do I really have to explain it?
3. Search for the vidoes
You can either search for the videos or select one of the videos that you watched recently.
4. Click on the “Add to Space” button
When you click on a video, you will see a big blue “Add to Space” button at the bottom of the screen.
