Google Chat and Spaces status bar symbols are being added to Gmail

Gmail for Android is in the process of rolling out separate icons for each type of notification: Chat: Single message bubble that’s outlined and has an empty interior. Spaces: Three people next to each other. Google Chat status bar. Old Chat/Spaces icon | New Chat icon I New Spaces icon I Gmail icon Google is now just using the bottom bar tab icons for the status bar. It matches the Gmail icon for email and helps people, especially enterprise users, quickly distinguish where a message is coming from.

While old Hangouts is being phased out for Workspace clients, Google Chat and Spaces are being updated with new features. Gmail for Android now has new status bar icons that help separate notifications from Google Chat and Spaces. Previously, new message notifications from Google Chat (one-on-one or group discussions) and Spaces (a rival to Slack/Teams) displayed the same status bar icon: a filled-in message bubble with another one behind it.

If there’s one complaint, the hollowed-out Chat icon is a bit easy to miss since it’s so minimal. Meanwhile, the Spaces icon will take a moment to get used to as it gives off a social networking vibe. (I originally thought it was Twitter’s new follower alert.)At the moment, we’ve only seen these new status bar icons on a single Android device running version 2022.02.20.x of Gmail. It’s not yet widely rolled out, while the standalone Google Chat app has yet to be updated. This comes as Gmail for iOS this month will show the Chat sender’s profile photo going forward for improved glanceability.
