Google today launched “Google Shared Spaces” in Google Labs, “is an easy way for you to share mini-collaborative applications, like scheduling tools or games, with your friends or colleagues. By creating a Shared Space, you can share a gadget with whomever you want by simply sending the URL. Once your friends join the Shared Space, you can collaborate with them in real-time on the gadget, and you can chat with them, too,” explains Google.
This product is built on some of the technology used in Google Wave.
So take Shared Spaces for a spin: Use the Waffle gadget to pick the date for a night out with your friends, annotate a shared map with your favorite places and vote on where to go using any of the polling gadgets. Or if you’d rather stay in, hit the games section and challenge somebody for a good old game of chess.
