Technology giant Google keeps on updating its Google Workspace by bringing new features. One of the major features is meeting auto transcription coming to Google Meet. With the new update, Google Meet will give an automatic transcript of the meetings. This transcription will be available in the form of a Word doc

It will help the users capture the meeting discussion, making it easier to follow up afterward or serve as a record. At present, users have to depend on third-party apps to transcribe Google Meet.

While for meetings with more than 200 attendees, the transcription will only be shared with the meeting organizers, host, co-hosts, and individual users who initiated a transcription.
