A new option will now present itself at the bottom left side of the screen on Google Meet which will allow you to check your audio and video quality before joining a meeting. Additionally, you can see your network connection and make sure it’s solid.
If there’s an issue with your microphone or your camera, let’s say you’re muted, you have poor sound quality or your audio is too loud thanks to a background noise that’s amplified by your mic, you’ll be notified with a warning tip. Lastly, you can make tweaks to your lighting and where you’re sitting relative to your camera so that your camera isn’t grainy or dark.
Neither end-users nor admins will need to do anything to see these new tools appear in Google Meet. Instead, both Rapid Release and Scheduled domains will have to check for it starting today. Everyone ought to have it over the next two weeks, with the exception being standard, non-Workspace Google account holders.
