Google Meet is allowing more features to make the meetings on its platform easier and safer. Sometimes it becomes a single host to manage a particularly large meeting or conference. Google Meet adds a solution to this complexity by allowing up to 25 co-hosts in a single meeting as 9to5Google has reported. The co-hosts can then split up actions like muting participants, launching polls, managing Q&As, etc.
The feature was added a little bit earlier for the Google Workspace for Education customers. Now it is added to all Meet apps on desktop and mobile including personal Google account users on the Meet.
Other than this feature, more controls have been added in Meet. The controls can be managed by the co-hosts too. The hosts will now be able to limit the participants who can share their screen, send chat messages, mute everyone with a single click, end the meeting for all, control who can join and how can they join with the “quick access” setting. The quick access setting can allow participants in the same domain to enter the meeting automatically. If this access is disabled then hosts must join first to let in others who are not invited to the meeting. The people who aren’t invited have to send a request to join the meeting in this case.
There is also a “People” panel that has a search to let hosts find participants quickly when moderation actions are needed. The features will be available on the web, Meet for Android, and the iOS version in the coming weeks.
