Google Meet app review
Currently, this application is available for standard users of Google accounts up to the end of September 2020. As mentioned before, users can hold video meeting with as many as 100 participants and no duration limit. There are plenty of features that Google Meet for Android offers, but here are the main ones. It provides several types of video layouts you can choose: spotlight, sidebar, or tiled. By using tiled layout, you can see 4 to 16 participants at one. It also lets you share screen and select which part of the screen to share during meeting.
The service provides real-time captioning feature that can be activated by clicking “Turn on captions” menu during video conference or meeting recordings to follow up later easily. It’s an amazing feature regarding accessibility. A feature of noise cancelling is recently announced, but it’s exclusively available for users of Google Suite for Education and Meet Enterprise. This app needs Google play services, so we have to install Google account manager, Google service framework and play services if we don’t have it on Android phone.
It helps participants to filter noises out in the background. Each meeting in this service has unique URL, which when generated will produce shareable PIN for desired participants. It is also worth to note that this video meeting and conferencing service is synced with Google Suite for the users to access calendars, meeting schedules, and other information easily.
