For Android users, the updates would be starting from August 16, while iOS users would receive the update starting from August 30.
Google Meet, the tech giant's video conferencing software, has a new update that brings many new features for free and Workspace users. The new features have been introduced to make it easier to control meetings.
The tech giant mentioned that the new features are some of the highly requested features by its users, and the highlight is the ability to add up to 25 co-hosts for meetings. The other features include new moderation tactics and safety measures and an updated Quick Access setting. In a statement, Google has said that not all the new features would be available to all the users.
The company announced the new update on its workspace blog. The statement stated that Google Meet users would grant rights for hosting a meeting with up to 25 co-hosts. The host can give control from the people panel. Additionally, all the co-hosts would get the same access and rules as the primary host.
Further, the host and co-hosts now can limit who all can share screens, send chat messages, and mute all participants with one click, via the Quick Access settings.
When the settings are turned on, participants from the same domain can join the meeting from the mobile or desktop. Meanwhile, if it is turned off, participants would have to wait for the host to join the meeting and only invited participants will be able to join. For Android users, the updates would be starting from August 16, while iOS users would receive the update starting from August 30.
