Here's why you can no longer use low battery as an excuse to leave Google Meet video calls
Thanks to the upcoming Google Meet saver mode, the low battery excuse is not going to fly anymore.
Over the last year, the number of video calls has just increased exponentially in our lives. So, if you have been using excuses like a low battery to get off video calls, you are not alone. However, if that IS the excuse you have been using to get off Google Meet calls, you will need to come up with something else soon. Thanks to the upcoming Google Meet saver mode, the low battery excuse is not going to fly anymore.
The Google Meet saver mode, when turned on, restricts the amount of data you use, conserves battery, and also reduces the power needed by the CPU to work. This saver mode toggle can be found under the Settings menu on Google Meet. Going forward, it is highly likely that you will be asked to toggle this mode on before getting on a video call, and thus saying that you are running out of battery in the middle of it is no longer going to work as an excuse.
Besides this, some other new features have been added recently to the Google Meet app including the ability, on Android devices, to respond to polls along with some safety features for educational users. Then there is the option to shut down a Google Meet video conference from iOS.
The Q&A feature on Google Meet is available for certain users who are using Google Workspace editions like Essentials, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise, Educations Plus (available for users with ‘teacher' and ‘student' license) and for G Suite Business users. On Google Meet now, groups with up to 250 members can get on a video conference at one time and realtime captions are provided by Google on these calls. To get people to join the call you can share a link or add members individually from your list. No one can join a meeting unless invited or allowed in by the host.
