Additional improvements for Google Meet

What’s changing

Google are introducing two improvements for Google Meet:

  • Prompts to exit meetings when you’re the only user in a meeting.
  • A centralized location for host management controls.

Why you’d use it

Leave empty call reminders 

Now, when you’re the only person in a meeting for five minutes, you’ll receive a prompt asking whether you want to stay or leave the meeting. If you don’t respond after two minutes, you will automatically leave the meeting.

This feature will be available for Google Meet on desktop and iOS devices (this will launch on Android soon) — see below for availability.

Host Management controls update

Currently, host and co-host controls can be found in multiple locations in Meet. For a more user intuitive experience, we’ve consolidated all host and co-host features in a single, central location under the “Host controls” menu. We hope this change makes it easier to manage your meeting settings by reducing the need to switch between various menus.

This update is specifically for Google Meet on desktop.

Getting started

  • Admins: There is no admin action required.
  • End users: Leave empty call reminders: This feature will be ON by default and can be turned off by the user. Visit the Help Center to learn more.
