Let’s take a look.
Google Announced New Features For Google Docs And Google Meet
Google’s video conferencing service, Google Meet has now received a “live sharing” feature, which allows third-party developers to directly build the Google Meet experiences into their apps. For instance, it will now be easier for you to share your YouTube video screen with the call participants. The feature will work on Android, iOS, and Chromecast powered devices.
Furthermore, Google has introduced Co-Watching and Co-Doing features as well. The Co-Watching feature lets users sync streaming app content across devices in real time. It also allows users to take turns sharing videos. On the other hand, the Co-Doing feature lets users get together and perform activities like playing video games together or working out together.

Lastly, Google has added a portrait light feature to Google Meet, which uses machine learning to simulate studio-quality lighting in the video feed even when the subject is in a poorly-lit room.
Next, the search giant has added auto-generated summaries for Google Docs, which will give you a short description of the document without having to read through the entirety of it. Furthermore, Google has also added Gmail’s phishing and malware warnings not only to Google Docs, but also to Google Sheets and Slides.
