Google has brought a new feature on its app Meets to improve the video conference experience for its users. Before the conference call starts, users can now check whether everything is working properly. This means that lighting, distance from the camera, audio can be checked. For this, the company has brought a feature called Green Room, through which users can check before any video call how they look or can see any tech-related thing.
How to use the feature?
According to the company, whenever a user is ready to join the meeting, a small button will appear in the Ready to Join window. This button will be present below the video which says that check your video and audio. Once you click this button, a pop-up window will appear, in which users will see their video image and can also see and change their active microphone, speaker and camera.
A next button will also be present on that pop-up window. With the help of this option, users will be able to record a short 6 second video sample. Then, they will be able to see this sample and they will see how they will engage other users during the video conference. Google claims that this clip is private and will not be saved in the Meat app. And a green checkmark will appear in front of the mic, camera, speaker and connection option if they are working.
According to Google, many times the lighting may be different or there may be problems in audio settings while using the headset. With this new feature, all these things can be easily managed. The feature has now been made available to all users.
