Google is adding new features to its video conferencing tool, that is, Google Meet. These functions are to provide more control and ease of access.
One of the major updates is that users will now be able to assign up to 25 co-hosts per meeting. What this means is that more than 25 users would have hosting privileges. Additionally, this will allow co-hosts to limit the number of users who can share their screen, send chat messages, and even mute all participants with the push of a button.
In addition, Google Meet is becoming more accessible with the new “Quick Access” setting. This works if you have Google Workspace as it would be enabled by default. However, if this feature is disabled, meetings will not start until the host joins. Additionally, users can block anonymous users who joined the meeting without asking, ensuring security.
These changes are subject to be implemented on the web and Android as of August 16 and on iOS as of August 30.
