Google Meet is adding a new settings panel to offer quick access to effects such as background blur, background images, and styles. This quick access panel will be available before and during a video call.
Users can test the effects before a call, in Google Meet’s Green Room.
Panel allows users to try out different effects and experiment with it.
Google says that the new quick settings panel in Google Meet is rolling out in a gradual manner.
This panel is accessible by tapping on the three-dotted option button and selecting Apply visual effects to open the sidebar menu.
If you wish to try the effects before a Google Meet call then just select the Effects tab from the Green Room interface and preview all the effects or apply blur to the background before joining a call.
This new panel will be available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers.
Panel will be disable by default for Education and Enterprise for Education domains and admins will have to enable it manually for all users.
Google Meet recently also introduced the ability to add up to 25 co-hosts per meeting.
All the co-hosts will get to access and utilise the controls available with the host.
Google also updates the People panel by adding the ability to search for a participant in the meeting.
This will allow hosts to quickly navigate to a user, mute their microphone, remove them from the meeting, or grant them co-host privileges.
Co-hosts can be identify with a security shield icon.
