Google Meet will now automatically zoom in on your face for better visibility


Tech giant Google has announced a new feature for Meet users to improve visibility by automatically framing videos. The company said in a blogpost that before a user joins a meeting, Google Meet will automatically frame the video to make sure all are viewed equally.

Google Meet introduces a new feature for better visibility

There is no motion disturbance that can distract attention from the subject of the meeting as the automatic framing only happens once. But the video can be manually reframed at any time.

There is no administrator control of this feature. By default, this function will be disabled, however, it can be turned on by the user.

The new feature is scheduled to launch on November 2, the company said. This feature was first announced during Google Cloud Next 2022.

Earlier, the company announced the Meet feature that enables users to unmute themselves by pressing the space bar and releasing it to mute themselves again.

The company said it will make it easier for users to participate in their meetings by quickly unmuting something to say.

“This feature helps in situations where you forget to mute again after unmute yourself. This feature is turned off by default and can be enabled in the Google Meet settings,” the company said.

The company said it has changed how “Hey Google” voice control works for Google Meet hardware devices.

With this update, Google Assistant will only be activated when no device is in the meeting and within 10 minutes of an upcoming meeting. Google Meet has also introduced automatic transcription for users. It will be available for meetings in English (starting this week), French, German, Spanish and Portuguese, coming in 2023.
