Google comes with a host of new features to Google Meet to make it easier for users to control and direct meetings. It allows users to quickly search for participants in the People panel. It offers users the ability to add up to 25 co-hosts per meeting, new moderation features, and an updated Quick access setting. The controls are available to you while depending on whether you are using Meet as a regular user or as part of a Google Workspace team.
The update allows all users to assign up to 25 co-hosts per meeting with access to host controls. It allows them to limit the users to have the ability to share their screens and send messages. It has the option to mute all participants with a single click, end the meeting, and control who can enter the meeting. The assigning co-hosts were only available to Google Workspace for Education customers previously. This is the new Quick Access settings for Google Workspace customers. It will be enabled by default. In case if it is turned off, the meetings won’t be able to start until the host joins.
Users will be able to block anonymous users from joining or only let invited participants join without asking. It ensuring only people who are supposed to be in a meeting are actually in there. The update is on the web and Android from August 16 and on iOS from August 30.
