The company’s G Suite team announced that Google Meet will now allow users to see up to 49 people at the same time, and users can also blur the background during video calls. The rapid release of these two updates has already begun, and the planned release will begin in the next few weeks. Chrome browsers on Windows and Mac currently provide a “background blur” feature. All G Suite customers and users with personal Google accounts can use these features.
Google Meet 49 personal grid
Now, users can see up to 49 people at the same time in the automatic and tiled layout options of Google Meet. Google also added a feature that allows users to see themselves as tiles in a call. If you choose to add yourself to the grid, hover over the thumbnail in the upper right corner and add yourself. To remove yourself from the grid, follow the same steps. These changes are only visible to users.
Google says this feature is only available in online gatherings. By default, the maximum number of tiles is 9, and the maximum number in the tile layout is 16. Will allow users to increase or decrease the number of tiles with the help of a slider. The slider adjustment is specific to each meeting. This feature is turned off by default, users can go to Settings>Change layout Adjust them.
Google Meet background is blurred
If you have an untidy background during a video call, the background blur function can save you time. Once enabled, Meet will intelligently separate the user from the background by blurring the environment. Google recently introduced a feature that can filter out destructive background noise in Meet. These two functions work together to provide a noise-free video call experience.
The company said that Google Meet Background Blur can be used without extension. Currently, Chrome browsers on Windows and Mac devices support this feature. The company will soon launch this feature in ChromeOS and Meet mobile applications. You can also cast the meeting to the TV.
