4/30/20 G Suite Roundup: Updates That Matter Most

With more users than ever working and studying remotely, G Suite’s team has been focused on refining UX for Meet. Read on to learn the details of these updates.

New Meet participant layout option

With the new tiled layout option, you can see up to 16 meeting participants at once while using Meet on the web. The display will automatically adjust to bring active speakers to the front.

Share your screen in Meet with higher quality

Especially with more users now working and studying from home, it is crucial that high visual clarity is maintained throughout calls. Therefore, the G Suite team has worked to enable screen sharing with higher visual quality than ever before.

Additionally, you can now choose to share only a single tab rather than your entire screen.

Both of these updates are enabled by default, so there is no need for admin activation.

Low-light mode for Meet

When joining a call while in lower lighting, Meet will now automatically adjust your video to provide the best visibility possible with your device. This update is also enabled by default, so no admin action is necessary.

As a final note regarding Meet, Google’s previously-announced offer providing all G Suite customers with free access to Premium features (such as hosting meetings with up to 250 participants) through September 30th, 2020! If you need help with taking advantage of this offer or have questions about anything else G Suite, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
