Google has rolled out some new features for its users. These new features include blurring the background and adding 49 people to the same group. First is the group setting. Google Meet will now allow users to see 49 people in a meeting. This can be done via auto and tiled modes. According to 9to5Google, users will have to manually enable the larger view, as the default view for Auto is limited to 9 people and 16 people in the tile.
Google said in a post, "With this launch, you will also be able to use the slider to adjust the number of tiles you see. When you have a weak internet connection, you can increase your chances of having a large group or reducing the number of tiles. "
The post continued, "Note that slider adjustments are specific to each meeting, it will reset between every meeting and you can customize it every time. Depending on the size of your window, you may also see fewer tiles, as the available tiles will adjust to fit your screen. "
This feature will be available to both G Suite and individual users in the coming weeks. Inspired by Zoom's background blur feature, Google Meat has also launched the background blur feature. This can be activated through a new icon which will appear on the lower right corner of your screen. You can enable the background to blur before or during a video call. This feature will first be available for Chrome for Mac and Windows users. Chrome OS and mobile app support will be available soon.
