In the main lesson, you had the option to learn how to send a direct message through Google Chat.

If you did not learn how to send a direct message, go back and complete that video now.

Then, return to this extension. In this extension, you will learn how to turn your chat history off -- and then on again. Sometimes, you might not want your history to be recorded for privacy, security, or other reasons. Or, you might want to keep your history on so you can refer to something in a past conversation. If you enable history, you can view a record of the conversation and find out when a message was sent.

To access Chat, you will need a paid Google Workspace account and to ask your domain administrator to enable Chat for your team. If you do not have a paid Google Workspace account, you can try it for free on a trial basis or choose another activity.

You will also need to ask your domain administrator to enable Chat for your team. The administrator also controls the default setting of whether you can turn chat history on or off. If you are unable to do so, choose another extension. To begin, navigate to chat.google.com.

Select the chat whose history you want to turn off, And click the history on and off icon.

When conversation history is turned off, messages will still be visible, but only for a short time. For this reason, messages may disappear before people see them.

Conversations with no messages also may disappear.

To turn the conversation history back on again, click the history on and off icon again.

Now, it’s your turn: Select a direct message conversation,, Click the history on and off icon to off, Then click it again to turn the conversation history back on again.
