Top features coming to Google Meet soon: Speech transcriptions, automatic framing and more



Google Meet

Google is going to bring a host of new features to Google Meet for a better User Experience. These features include Automatic Transcript, Companion Mode, and More

Google Meet Upcoming Features

Automatic Transcript Feature

Meeting transcripts automatically record the meeting discussion, making it easier to follow up later or serve as a record. Currently, users must rely on third-party apps to transcribe Google Meet. Google is now incorporating this feature. The transcribed file, like meeting recordings, will be saved in the host’s “Meet Recordings” folder in Google Drive. The feature will initially be available only in English.

As announced by Google, for meetings with fewer than or equal to 200 invitees, the meeting host, co-hosts, or the transcript initiator will receive a link to the transcription document via email after the meeting ends. The transcript will automatically attach to the associated calendar invite for the meeting. 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.

Google will start rolling it out to Workspace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Starter, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, and the Teaching and Learning Upgrade customers starting October 24.

In-room meeting participants can join break-out rooms

Google said that meeting hosts can now assign conference rooms to breakout rooms when using Google Meet hardware devices. This would ensure that all meeting participants, whether they are joining remotely or in the office, can engage in collaborative working sessions.

Companion Mode

Google Meet is getting a new companion mode that allows users to raise a hand, create polls, and more from a laptop. Google says that “this mode will give in-room attendees the ability to fully participate by raising their hand, chatting, or asking questions from their phone while leveraging the in-room audio and video

Automatic Framing

Google Meet will soon get a feature wherein the video conferencing platform will automatically be able to frame video before joining a meeting to help ensure equal visibility for all participants. The company said that this automatic framing will happen only once at the beginning of a meeting so there are no motion distractions that can divert attention from the content of the meeting.

Google said that Google Workspace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Starter, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, Education Teaching, and Learning Upgrade, and Workspace Individual customers with eligible devices will get this feature as a part of a gradual roll out starting November 2.

In addition, Google Meet users will now be able to join or start a meeting directly from Jamboard on the web to kickstart collaboration. This will make it easier for users to seamlessly present the jam and start collaborating.
