In the age of digital communication, video conferencing platforms have become an integral part of our lives. Google is now taking it one step further by introducing a new ‘On-the-Go’ mode for its video conferencing platform—Meet. This feature will make it easier and safer for users to attend video calls while they are on the move.
Google Meet’s On-the-Go mode is designed to make it easier for users to stay connected while they are on the move. The feature takes the help of the device’s sensors and automatically gets enabled when the app detects that the user is in motion. It then turns off the camera and stops streaming video from other participants in the meeting in order to avoid distraction. Additionally, it also provides users with a new layout with large buttons, allowing them to mute themselves, switch audio, raise or lower hands or end the call.
The On-the-Go mode is a great way to make video calls easier and safer for users who are on the move. It eliminates the need to manually switch off the camera or mute the audio while walking, travelling or engaging in other activities. Additionally, it also helps to prevent distractions, allowing users to focus on their surroundings.
Google Meet users can enable the On-the-Go mode by locating it in the in-call menu by tapping the vertical three-dot menu on the application. Once enabled, users can also disable the mode and return to the basic interface when they are stationary.
