Back in June, Google said that it will merge its two video calling services into one and upgrade Google Duo to include all of Google Meet’s capabilities. In addition to your current video calling choices, this upgrade, which started rolling out last month, now gives everyone access to extra features. These include scheduling and joining meetings, virtual backgrounds, in-meeting chat, and much more.
Google has also given Google Meet a live sharing option. All participants can engage with the live-shared content thanks to this functionality. All attendees can co-watch YouTube videos, create a Spotify playlist, play Heads Up!, and a lot more.
Let’s have a look at the list of all the new features added to Google Meet down below.
New Features On Google Meet
- Live Sharing: This feature enables interaction with the shared content by all attendees.
- Group Video Conversation: Using this function, you may have a brief video talk with your whole study group or connect with coworkers at a regularly scheduled period.
- Change Backdrop: You may alter your background or add visual effects before a meeting.
- In-Meeting Chat and Action Capabilities
