Google has announced a new feature called Google Meet Green Room which is designed to enhance the customer experience for video conferencing. The new feature has been added to the Google Meet app, called green room which allows users to check their appearance as well as check if everything is working fine before the video call starts.

Users can check the rooms lighting, distance from the camera, audio, as well as voice echo with the new ‘green room’ feature. The feature allows users to check their appearance and tech before any Google Meet conference.

When a user starts or prepares to join a Google Meet, they will be able to see a small button that will appear in the usual “Ready to join?” window in Google meet settings. The button is placed just below the video which says “Check your audio and video.” A pop-up window will appear which will show users their video image and allow them to see as well as change the active microphone, speaker, and camera, etc.

You will see the “Next” button on the pop-up window, which will let users record a short 6-second video sample. Users will be able to view this sample and see how they will appear to others participating in the video conference. Google has stated that the clip will be private and will not be saved in the Meet app. Users will be able to see a green checkmark in front of the microphone, camera, speaker, and connection options after seeing if they are working. Google stated that this feature will help users to check the lighting which may appear different or audio settings when using headsets. This new feature will allow users to manage all these things easily. The feature has been rolled out to all Google users now.
