No more worrying about the background at Google Meet!
Google has introduced a feature that allows you to customize different background templates when making video calls through Meet.
With the advent of the corona virus, many of the office workers are now working from home. Many use video conferencing platforms as part of their work from home. At the same time when using such video conferencing apps we need to be very careful about the clothes we wear and our background. We have to take care of the clothes ourselves. At the same time, Google Meet users no longer have to worry about the background.
Google has introduced a feature that allows you to customize different background templates when making video calls through Meet. Various backgrounds such as office, hotel room, coffee shop and valley can be set up before the video call starts. Why there is a custom system to make your own image as a background.
For the time being, this system is designed for those who use this app via desktop and laptop. This feature can be used when running Google Meet on ChromeOS, Chrome and Mac browsers. Mobile users will have to wait a bit longer for this feature, according to a Google blog post.
