Google Meet Simplifies One-on-One Video Calling with Link-Free Option

Earlier, when you had to do a video call on Google Meet, the only way to connect with the other person was to send them a meeting link, which added a barrier to direct communication. However,  with the new update, the company has cleared that it will simplify the process and add some new features for 1–1 video calls in the enterprise version.

With the latest update, the company has removed the need to send the invite link via calendar invite, cat, or email to make 1-on-1 calls. Now you can directly place a call on the app, similarly to personal users.

Additionally, to bring more convenience to making 1-on-1 calls, Google has introduced some new features of the app that are accessible at the same time when the call is connected. The feature includes in-meet chat, virtual backgrounds, visual effects, live closed captions, and many more.

When the update is installed, the new feature will be automatically activated, but according to usage, you can turn it off from the settings. To make it more advanced, the Big G has also promised to add admin controls to restrict inbound calls next year.

If we talk about the availability of the new feature update, for the iOS user, it is already released, but it may take more than 15 days to reach all the units. For Android users, the release will take place on November 14. The new feature will be available for all Google Workspace customers.

For your information, Google Meet is the new form of Google Duo, which is a dedicated option for easy handling of meetings. It integrates with other Google Workspace apps like Gmail, Docs, Slides, and engaging meetings like emoji reactions, recordings, transcripts, and breakout rooms. It also offers the live-sharing feature to watch YouTube videos, listen to music, and play games together from anywhere in the world.
