If you regularly attend office meetings or meet with family and friends via video calls, you may be familiar with a common echo problem. can be very uncomfortable. Referring to this issue, Google recently added a nifty feature to its Google Meet video conferencing app that discreetly notifies you when your system crashes during a video call.
No More Echo During a Video Call On Meet
The Mountain View giant recently announced the feature for Google Meet via an official blog post on its Workspace Updates forum. This feature is designed to notify you about the echo issue during a video call on Google Meet.
Google says Meet already has some clever features for canceling echoes during video calls; however, when your system transmits a lot of audio during a call, it can still happen and cause audio problems for other participants. your system may be causing echo problems during a call, you may not be aware of this until someone in the call informs you of the problem, an echo from your system during a call.
As a result, Google Meet will now automatically detect echoes in your video calls and silently send notifications to notify you of an issue. The message will appear with a red dot in the Advanced option in the call UI.
Clicking on the red dot will lead you to Google’s Help Center where you could find the necessary steps to eliminate and prevent the issue. The feature will be turned on by default.
In terms of accessibility, the new Google Meet feedback feature is currently rolling out to Google Workspace, G Suite, and business customers, so if you’re using Google Meet, you’ll see it in the background on this platform in the next 15 days.
