Google Chat uses one of the simplest app tours ever. The tour consists of three steps, then the users are prompted with another contextual tooltip outside the tour that explains the tools users can use.
✅ short and simple - Google Chat already has very few features, so naturally the guide is very short both in steps and in copy. This lets users explore the fuınctionalities on their own after finding out where is where thanks to the tour.
✅ visual aid and dimming - The gifs that come with the tour steps and dimming actually do a lot to make sure users are taking the message, although the tour is short.
✅ contextual - Though there are few functions, Google doesn’t forget that there are contextualities to the apps with the least amount of functionality. It features a contextual tooltip for when the users are ready to start chatting.
