Google debuts Meet features, including ‘Companion mode’

  • On the Meet side, Google is rolling out Meet calling on both mobile and desktop devices.
  • With Companion mode, users can share content or see presentations on their devices without audio reverb, plus access the meeting chat and whiteboard, vote on polls, and post questions in the Q&A. Accompanying Companion mode is a live-translated captions feature, which will be available in Meet by the end of the year.
  • These devices will be the first to support bidirectional interoperability with Cisco, allowing users to launch a Meet meeting on Webex hardware and a Webex meeting on Meet hardware.
