Google Meet to get a redesign, data saver feature


About Google Meet

Google Meet is a video conferencing app. It is the business-oriented version of Google's Hangouts platform and is suitable for businesses of all sizes. The solution enables users to make video calls with up to 30 users per high-definition video meeting.


The app allows users to join pre-scheduled meetings from calendar events, choose a link, enter meeting code and even dial in from their phones if the invitation includes a phone number. Google Meet integrates with G Suite versions of Google Calendar and Gmail and shows the complete list of participants and scheduled meetings. It shows a "join" button for users to connect to the meeting and provides options to mute and turn off the video during the meeting.

Google Meet allows users to dial in phone numbers to access meetings, thus enabling users with slow or no internet connection to call in. However, dial-in numbers are only available to the G Suite enterprise edition customers.

Google Meet


Google is adding new features to Meet including a refreshed look on the web and a few other features powered by artificial intelligence.

Starting next month, users can pin and unpin content, giving them more space to see the content and others’ video feeds. They will be able to pin multiple tiles to customize what they want to focus on. Besides, users can resize, reposition and hide their own video, creating free space to see even more people on the call.


The tech giant is also launching Data Saver to limit data usage on mobile networks to allow users to save on data costs.
Also, Google Meet on the web will get adaptive brightness for improved visibility in cases where the user appears underexposed. The light adjustment will be rolling out to Meet users everywhere in the coming weeks.

Additionally, the company is adding Autozoom to allow others to zoom in and position squarely in front of the camera. The feature will be available to Google Workspace (paid) subscribers in the coming months.

In the coming weeks, Google Meet will also allow its users to replace their background with a video. To start with, they will have three options to choose from- a classroom, a party, and a forest.
