With remote work becoming the new normal as the world is fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, Google has now rolled out four most-requested Google Meet features to make people stay connected even while they’re apart.
As the number of people connect on Google Meet is growing rapidly, Google has introduced four of their top-requested Meet features like Google AI to improve meeting quality and user experience, and will gradually roll out to customers across the world. These include: Tiled layout for larger calls, Present higher-quality video content with audio, Low-light mode and Noise cancellation. With these new features, the tech giant aims to ensure that the users have the features they need to share and be productive.
Looking at the Tiled layout for larger calls, Google has stated that “The expanded tiled layout now lets web users simultaneously see up to 16 participants at once (previously, tiled layouts only enabled you to see four people at a time). More updates are coming for larger meetings, better presentation layouts, and support across more devices.”
As far as presenting higher-quality video content with audio feature is concerned, an official blog post by Google revealed that the users now have the option to present a Chrome tab (instead of just presenting their window or entire screen). If you need to share high-quality video with audio content in meetings, select this option for the best experience for remote viewers.
Besides this, the Low-light mode allows Google Meet to use AI to automatically adjust your video to make you more visible to other participants in sub-optimal lighting conditions. According to Google, “This feature is currently rolling out to mobile users, and will be available to web users in the future.”
Coming over to Noise cancellation feature, this will help limit interruptions to your meeting. According to Smita Hashim, Director of Product Management, Google Meet, Voice & Calendar, “Meet can now intelligently filter out background distractions—like your dog barking or keystrokes as you take meeting notes. Noise cancellation will begin rolling out in the coming weeks to G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Enterprise for Education customers starting with web users and later to mobile users.”
“We are constantly finding ways to enhance security and privacy for all users, such as adding new moderator controls to help educators more effectively manage their meetings and protect their students,” she added.
