How to move permanently to remote work after quarantine

Remote work has become increasingly essential for people’s safety and well-being. Being connected is very important, even while we are apart.

A brief analysis points to the growing connection of people at Google Meet that aims to provide essential resources for sharing, leaving the home office productive.

In the past month, the advanced features of Meet have been extended to all G Suite customers so that they can get the most out of it.

Another important issue was the increase in engineering support for Meet, both to ensure responsible sizing and to offer users four of the most requested features of Meet. With Google AI technology, the quality of meetings and the user experience will be very good.

Some of these changes are:

  1. Side-by-side layout for larger calls: the expanded side-by-side layout now allows web users to simultaneously view up to 16 participants at once.
  2. High-quality video content with audio: now users have the option of presenting a Chrome tab (instead of just presenting the window or the entire screen). If you want to share high-quality videos with audio content in meetings, select this option to get the best experience for remote viewers.
  3. Low light mode: Meet can now use AI to automatically adjust your video to make it more visible to other participants in sub-optimal lighting conditions.
  4. Noise cancellation: to help limit interruptions to your meeting, Meet can now intelligently filter out distractions in the background;

Note: Noise cancellation will begin to be implemented in the coming weeks for G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Enterprise for Education customers, starting with web users and later for mobile users.

Remember that Meet uses the same protections Google uses to protect user data and protect privacy. Meet’s anti-abuse features are enabled by default, video conferences are encrypted in transit, and our certifications of compliance can help support regulatory requirements.

What’s more, Google is constantly finding ways to improve the security and privacy of all users, such as adding new moderator controls to help educators more effectively manage their meetings and protect their students.
