Google Meet has been made free for all users and now, it has introduced several other features that will take on Zoom. As per the latest announcement, the video conferencing app will allow its users to blur out the background and then replace it with a virtual background.
Not only this, but users will also be able to select, choose, and upload a background image of their choice. As per the announcement, the company is also introducing a feature for students and educators. This feature is expected to be a massive shot in the arm for office-goers.
Now, if there is an important meeting to attend to, you can hide or simply blur the background image if it does not suit your senses. This feature can be availed in both mobile and desktop versions.
Google Meet is also set to introduce the polling and Q&A features. The Polling features can allow the host and participants during a video call real-time surveys. On the other hand, the Q&A feature will allow participants to ask questions without interrupting the conversation.
Also, there is an interesting feature which is called Hand Raising that allows participants to raise their hands when they intend to say something during a team meeting.
