Google announced that it has added new tools to Google Meet that make it easier for users who experience problems during video conferencing to resolve common issues.
With more employees working from home than ever before, video conferencing software has seen a massive boom in usage. However, connectivity and other video call issues can reduce the productivity of remote teams working from home.
For this reason, Google has added a new “Troubleshooting and Help” option to Meet’s three-dot menu just above the settings.
Troubleshooting in Meet
During a video call, when a user clicks the Troubleshooting and Help option in Meet, they see information about both the quality of their Internet connection and the current load on their system, along with tips that tell them how to improve their video conferencing. experience.
In a post on the Google Workspace blog, Google explained how Meet tries to deal with users who are overloading their systems or experiencing poor network performance during a video call, saying:
“Meet shares processing power and network connections with all other applications and browser tabs running on a computer. When the system is overusing its processing power or suffers from a poor network connection, Meet will attempt to adjust and maintain performance while consuming fewer resources. Some of those adjustments are less visible, but if resource shortages are severe or persistent, users may notice blurry video, stuttering audio, or other issues. ”
The Google Meet Troubleshooting and Help option is available to all Meet users by default and the new feature has already started rolling out.
