Google has declared to bring its video chat service Meet to Gmail on iOS and Android smartphones so that people can comfortably join video meetings from their inbox on the go.
In the upcoming weeks, Google users will soon see a new Meet tab on the phone's Gmail app where they can view upcoming meetings scheduled in Google Calendar, and easily join them with a single tap. In the Meet tab, hit on "New meeting" to start a meeting instantly, get a meeting link to share, or to schedule a meeting in Calendar.
"If you tap on ‘Join with a code,' you can join meetings shared with you by inserting a meeting code," Google said in an announcement late Tuesday.
"If you don't want Meet to seem as a tab in the Gmail app, access the Settings from the hamburger menu in the top left corner of your inbox, tap on your account, scroll down and uncheck Meet," the company told.
With video calling now being an essential part of our lives, Google made Meet free and available for everyone last month and also brought it into Gmail on the web. The tech giant has seen daily usage of Meet grow by 30 times, with Meet hosting over 3 billion minutes of video meetings daily. The video calling app has started receiving AI noise cancellation feature update to help attendees reduce the background noise significantly.
