The company has announced that the 49 meeting participants’ view which Google announced in June will arrive next month in Google Meet. So, from September, Google Meet users will be able to see all the 49 participants on the screen at the same time. Google also said that it will incorporate its digital whiteboard called Jamboard in Google Meet in September. Along with this, Google Meet will also get the ability to replace or blur the background in Meet.
Apart from this starting October, the G Suite Enterprise for education customers will create breakout rooms in Google Meet. This means that they will be able to divide the classes into small groups for virtual discussions. In October only, the teachers will also be able to keep track of the attendance in Meet meetings.
Google has also announced new moderation controls to help educators on the G Suite Enterprise for Education to manage classes. By the end of this month, the moderators will be able to restrict people from joining meetings once they have started the session to avoid any kind of disturbance. Google will also allow the moderators to end a Meet class for all participants at the same time. Other new features coming for moderators include, ability to bulk approve or reject requests to join a class, restrict the presence of someone in the class, turn off in-meeting chat and more.
Along with these, Google also announced new tools for non-Meet users. With the new tool, the company aims to help students learn using smartphones for learning. When stuck with a homework problem, students and parents can use Socratic and soon can use Google Lens to take a photo of a problem or equation they need help with. Socratic and Lens provide quick access to results, such as step-by-step guides to solve the problem and detailed explainers to help you better understand key concepts.
