Google Meet has become a helpful platform for host virtual meetings and online classes worldwide since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic-induced crisis and lockdown.
Google has introduced several value-added features to improve the user experience during the last year. It is now introducing plenty of new features to enhance the quality of calls made through this platform to make meetings more immersive and productive.

Quick actions for Meet Call Quality
You’ll also notice one-click adjustments that can significantly reduce Meet resource consumption. These can include tweaking settings to utilize less CPU or internet resources and adding closed captions to help with auditory comprehension.

- Re-join a call after being removed before, or their account was automatically refused based on prior abuse and more…
Google has begun to make these features available to all Google Workspace users. It will most likely be available to all customers worldwide over the next 15 days.
