You'll soon get the huge new Google Meet redesign, but be aware of bugs
What you need to know
- Google is rolling out a new Meet design on the web.
- The company confirmed today that it had hit 1% of users.
- There are a few known issues that Google plans to sort out over the next month.
Google last month announced a new Google Meet interface would be rolling out to Chromebooks and desktop operating systems, and now the company says that it's now available for some. Despite that, Google notes that there is some weirdness in the app.
First though, let's talk about the new Meet look. The new look adapts itself for larger meetings, letting more callers be visible at a time. It also allowed users to resize their own tile if they wanted to keep themselves visible, rather than the current all or nothing option.
So, what's wrong with the Google Meet interface? Google highlights the following known issues.
From looking at them, most of these issues appear to be quite light or non-breaking. If you want to use Meet's new look and don't mind these issues, you probably can.
In the meantime, if you've upgraded to the Meet interface, Google will offer you the option to revert to the previous version of Meet before June 10th, or up until Google has rolled out the update to 100% of all users. At this point, only 1% of Meet users have had this rolled out to them so far.
Google Meet remains one of Google's best video conferencing apps, with Duo a close second. Google has currently made all of its premium features free, though it plans to rescind that pretty soon.
