- Google Meet Gets Automatic Lighting Adjustment Feature.
- The new light adjustment feature is only available on desktop and iOS devices.
- The automatic video lighting adjustment feature on Google Meet requires a 64-bit operating system.
Google Meet on the web has added the ability to automatically detect when users appear underexposed and enhance the brightness to improve their visibility if they are in a dark environment. The automatic video lighting adjustment feature on Google Meet is gradually rolling out Rapid Release domains while Scheduled Release domains will get this feature starting October 4, 2021.
Google Meet can now detect if you or someone on a video call is underexposed due to bad lighting conditions. In such situations, Meet will automatically increase the brightness for these users. Similarly, if someone is overlit due to harsh lighting conditions, then Google Meet will automatically decrease the brightness. This will ensure that your feed is always clearer.
The automatic light adjustment feature can slow down a system, so users can also opt to turn off the feature when they want to. The feature requires a 64-bit operating system and a Chrome version M90 or above Windows, Mac, or Linux. To limit interruptions during a video meeting, Meet has added a feature to filter out background distractions through the AI noise cancellation feature.
