Have you ever wanted to share a direct link to a Google Chat message or thread? At the moment there isn’t a straightforward way, but we’ve discovered a workaround that works well.


Here’s how to get the link to a specific conversation thread or message in Google Chat:

  1. Go to the message or thread you want to get the link for and click on it. You will notice two options on the right side of the message. Click on Forward to inbox.


  1. Check your Gmail inbox. You will receive an email from Google Chat that contains a link to the exact message or thread.


  1. If you want to share the link with someone, right click on the the “Open message” button and click “Copy link address


  1. Now you can send it to someone else to direct them to that specific Google Chat thread or message or save it for future reference.


You can also choose to forward the entire email that you’ve just received from Google Chat (Step 2) to the contacts you want to share it with.
