I remember the days of AIM, Google chat (what was it called?), and MSN. I used the app Pidgen, and it was amazing having everything consolidated in one single app. Sadly, every platform moved to the walled garden approach with locked down protocols.

Using chat to check for understanding
use the Google Chat feature to ask and answer questions or type in emojis, like a thumbs-up or thumbs-down, to show whether they understood a concept.

@tylerblack32 @nytimes Thank you for saying this! It's been so relieving to watch my kids adapt and thrive through 2020. They play online, talk w/ friends for hours, relationally problem-solve, build things, prank each other, and just be kids together on platforms like Minecraft, Google chat, etc.

Fun observation from yesterday's Slack outage: some of Google Chat's APIs are 1:1 compatible with Slack's. There was very little work involved with integrating Chat's incoming webhooks with the Slack hooks I already use.
