Google's New Social App 'Spaces' Is For Niche, Intimate Social Networking


Google released a new social app called “Spaces” on Monday for web and iOS/Android devices. The app, which is neither a social network nor a messaging platform, features integration with YouTube, Chrome and Google Search.

What exactly is it? According to Luke Wroblewski, the app’s Product Director, it is a "destination for when you want to share, and talk about what you're sharing.” Wroblewski told Mashable that Spaces allows for conversations to be created -- like message threads -- where content can be shared.
