Egnyte’s ecosystem team is committed to bringing you seamless integrations with the latest, most useful business apps. We’ve dedicated the last couple of years to creating better integrations with leading productivity suites, and today we’re pleased to announce yet another step forward.

Introducing the Egnyte Connect integration for Hangouts Chat. G Suite is very popular among Egnyte customers and we strive to update our solution whenever Google adds new tools. Today, G Suite launched Chat; an impressive update designed to make team collaboration simple and effective. We support the launch by making our integration available the moment you start using the app.

Our newest integration enables users to add the Egnyte bot to their Chat room. Once the bot is added, sharing a file with team members is as easy as calling the bot, “@Egnyte share,” and picking the file. The file can now be easily accessed from within the room.

Chat will also render thumbnails for documents or images shared via public links. When sharing private links, Egnyte will automatically enforce permissions to check if team members have access to the document(s) if clicked on. And best of all – there’s no need to worry about document versions or multiple repositories. Files stay secure in Egnyte while being accessible from your favorite collaboration platform. We’re all about making things easy.

We are proud to offer our industry’s tightest integration with G Suite and will release more exciting enhancements in the coming months.

Give our latest integration a spin and feel free to let us know what you think!
