How do I pay for my google chat service?

Short summary:

  1. Sign in to your Google account: Open a web browser and go to the Google Chat website (https://chat.google.com/). Sign in using your Google account credentials (email address and password).
  2. Access your chat inbox: Once signed in, you will be directed to your chat inbox. This is where you can view your ongoing conversations and start new chats.
  3. Start a new chat: To begin a new chat with someone, click on the "New chat" icon located in the bottom-left corner of the screen. Enter the name or email address of the person you want to chat with and type your message in the chat box.
  4. Join a chat room: If you want to join an existing chat room, click on the "Rooms" icon on the left-hand side of the screen. You will see a list of available chat rooms. Click on the room you want to join and start participating in the conversation with other members.
  5. Enjoy chatting: You can now send and receive messages in Google Chat, either in one-on-one conversations or in group chat rooms. Use the chat interface to exchange messages, share files, and collaborate with others.

Hello, thank you for using Howly.
Just to clarify, Google Chat is a free service provided by Google, so you don't need to pay for it. You can use Google Chat to chat with your friends, family, and colleagues, share files, and collaborate in real time without any cost.


However, if you are using Google Workspace, which is a paid subscription service that includes a variety of Google applications including Google Chat, then you need to pay for the subscription to access the premium features.
Could you tell me which service you're implying?

Just interested in the chat

So you'd like to only use the chat without a subscription to Google Workspace, correct?
