Google Decides They Want to be More Like Teams & Zoom

Google Decides They Want to be More Like Teams & Zoom

A couple of weeks old but I came across a post from Google about upcoming changes to GMeet. Namely, they’ve decided that they want to copy Zoom and Teams by adding things like:

  • Customizable backgrounds
  • Increasing the number of people visible on screen at once to up to 16 people
  • Interactivity features like polling, “hand-raising”, Q&A, etc.
These are all good changes and it’s nice to see Google catching up with the market. If you use GSuite, you should be pretty stoked!
