Google plans to add a Zoom-like gallery to its business and education-based Meeting Video Conferencing Service and users can make calls from Gmail, Google’s GM and VP G Javier Soltero Disclosed in an interview.
The increase is growing as associates, families, students and staff use it at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the next gallery view, users can share 16 meeting participants in one frame. The functionality will arrive later this month, Soltero said.
Zoom’s gallery view, on the other hand, lets you view thumbnails of up to 49 people on a screen, if you have enough CPUs to display them all.
Gmail’s new integration will allow Gmail’s sound to start or respond to a call from Gmail’s window, to initiate or answer calls such as Gmail-focused chats and video conferencing.
The feature will be launched for G Suite customers today on the network and later on mobile.
“As more and more people work and learn from home, we want to make things easier and more connected, With Meet Gmail, you can start or join a meeting in a row. Our goal is to help you continue your day-to-day flow, helping you get through emails and video meetings. Any kind of communication you need.”
Google also adds the ability to improve Meet video quality when you are in lighting conditions and in background noise filtering calls. Those features will be added later this month, Reuters reported.
Google said last week that Meet was adding more than 2 million users a day. Meet has added more daily users than any other Google service since January. Meet’s growth peak was up 60 percent more users than the day before.
Last Thursday, Google expanded its free access for some advanced Meet features. Prior to that, free access was coming to an end on 1st July
