How To Leave A Space On Google Chat

Did you accidentally join the wrong space on Google Chat? Or do you have a conversation that you no longer use? In any case, you can leave a space whenever you want. Follow our step-by-step guide below, and we’ll show you how.


In Google Chat, users can join or create spaces to collaborate with their contacts and teammates online. Inside a space, users can share messages, files, pictures, and other information that can help them with their work or projects.

As a member of a space, you have the option to leave one whenever you want. If you no longer find the conversation useful or if it’s not active anymore, you can exit it to remove it from your spaces section.

Here’s our guide about leaving a space on Google Chat.
