Google, the tech behemoth, has unveiled a new feature for Meet users that will automatically frame the video to increase visibility.
Meet will automatically frame the video before a user enters a meeting to ensure everyone is equally visible, the company claimed in a blog post.
There are no motion disturbances that could detract from the subject of the meeting, as the automatic framing occurs only once. However, the video can always be manually reframed.
There is no admin control for this feature. This feature is disabled by default, but can be enabled by the user.
According to the company, the new feature will launch on November 2.
The feature was initially introduced on Google Cloud Next 2022.
The company had previously announced a Meet feature that allows users to mute themselves by releasing and holding the spacebar to unmute.
According to the company, users will find it easier to voice their opinion during meetings by quickly unmuting.
“This feature helps in situations where you forget to mute again after you unmute. This feature is OFF by default and can be turned on in Google Meet settings,” the company said.
The company claimed to have tweaked the functionality of the “Hey Google” voice control on Google Meet hardware.
The Google Assistant will only be available after this update if a device is not in a meeting and within 10 minutes of a meeting about to start.
