Google has announced to introduce new innovations in its Meet app like a refreshed user interface (UI), autozoom, enhanced reliability features powered by the latest Google AI, and tools that make meetings more engaging.
Google Meet new features:
Google has made quite a few changes to Meet, and the following are some of the noticeable ones.
Beginning next month, desktop and laptop users will see a new, richer user interface with an array of easy-to-access features that make meetings more productive and inclusive.
1. Pinning and unpinning of content.
Google will also allow pinning multiple users if they are presenting during meetings. It will also allow users to pin multiple video feeds in the coming months to let users combine people and content. When unpinned, the presentation tile will become the same size as other participant tiles. This will allow users to see more people on the call and better gauge reactions.
2. Data Saver Feature
Aside from the new UI, Google Meet is introducing a Data Saver this month to limit usage on mobile networks. Following the Android and iOS apps, the coming weeks will see a light adjustment feature on the web to detect when a user is underexposed and enhance brightness.
3. Turn Off Your Own Video
If you’re fed up with seeing your own face during calls, you’ll soon be able to minimize or hide it entirely. New options will also include the ability to place your own video feed in a tile in the grid of meeting participants, or a floating picture that can be resized and repositioned.
This feature can automatically detect if there’s too much or too little light and/or exposure on a user’s face and enhance the video feed so it looks way clearer. Autozoom is also meant to improve visibility by automatically positioning you squarely in front of your camera.
5. Video Backgrounds
In the next few weeks, you’ll be able to add a video background to your Meet calls. This aims to make your calls interactive and more fun. Initially, there will be three video backgrounds to choose from.
