Google Bringing Meet Directly to Docs, Slides, Sheets in the Same Tab

Google Meet launches a new feature that brings Meet directly to Docs, Slides, and Sheets. The feature reveals as part of new Google Workplace announcements. The new feature will let users initiate Meet calls in the same tab while working on any of the three apps. This feature is going to roll out in the coming weeks.

Google Meet is adding new improvements to make video meetings more productive. The video-calling platform recently announced that it will allow you to exit meetings when you are the only user left. The ability to hold a Meet call from within Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides will be available on the web first.

Later this year, Google will also be introducing live translations of captions in Meet which are currently offered in five languages. Initially, you will see English-language live captions translated into Spanish, Portuguese, French, or German, followed by many more languages.

Besides, Google adds the ability to present content from Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides directly to an active Google Meet call. This will eliminate the need to switch between apps and allow you to see your audience and content at the same.

Google announced the latest collaboration of Google Meet with Docs, Slides, and Sheets as a part of new Google Workspace announcements. The new feature will enable users to quickly start a meeting and bring it into a document, spreadsheet, or presentation, allowing them to present content to all meeting attendees.

As of now, there is no news of the feature rolling out to smartphones and it’s unclear how that might work. The Google Meet collaboration feature is expected to roll out in the coming weeks.

The video-calling platform announces last week. This will now allow you to exit from meetings when you are the only user left. With this update, when you’re the only participant in a meeting for five minutes, you’ll receive a prompt asking whether you want to stay or leave the meeting. If you don’t respond after two minutes, you will automatically leave the meeting. Further, in order to make switching between menus easier, Google is centralizing host management controls in the Meet. They are now consolidated into a central location under the Host controls menu. The controls were earlier found in multiple locations.
