Smartsheet Launches Integration with Google’s Hangouts Chat


Take action on work where conversations happen

Smartsheet Inc. (SMAR), a leading cloud-based platform for work execution, today announced an integration with Hangouts Chat that enables users to take action without leaving the application, further extending Smartsheet’s capabilities within G Suite.

“We are deeply committed to helping customers drive work execution from their preferred messaging platform,” said Gene Farrell, SVP of Product, Smartsheet. “We’re also excited to strengthen our partnership with Google Cloud so that our shared customers can boost productivity.”

With the integration enabled, users can have their Smartsheet update and approval requests, notifications, and reminders delivered directly to Hangouts Chat. From there, they have the ability to respond to the request, set a reminder, or view the notification in Smartsheet for more detail.

“Today, our team relies on classic Hangouts for real-time communication and Smartsheet for planning and executing our work,” said Mark Shampine, Senior Staff Program Manager, Seagate Technology. “With this new integration, we’ll be able to speed our team’s adoption of Hangouts Chat and keep everyone in sync across the two tools to eliminate the risk of missing important updates or time-sensitive approval requests.”
