Google Meet is receiving some new features on Chrome. Google wrote it on its official blog to declare the availability of picture-in-picture mode on Meet for Chrome browsers. Users will presently be able to see up to four tiles of seminar attendees while receiving a Google Meet call on the web.
The Picture-in-Picture option can be availed by clicking the three-dot menu icon next to the hang-up switch on the Google Meet app on Chrome.
In addition to this, the online meeting platform also carries multiple pinning video features. Users can directly pin multiple videos feeds instead of one. This element will give access to amend the view on the app, according to the company.
“We hope these features make it easier for presenters and meeting attendees to stay engaged with their meeting,” Google commented.
The picture-in-picture and the multi-pinning options for Google Meet users have started launching on June 16th. They are accessible to all Google Workspace customers, and legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers, and they can also be used by the users who utilize personal Google Accounts.
Google Meet has received an automatic transcription feature for educators enlisted to Google’s Workspace for Education Plus and Teaching and Learning Upgrade strategies. The company also generated polls and Q&A sessions for teachers who utilize Google Meet to live stream their lessons, potentially creating more opportunities for interactivity.
