Google Meet Can Automatically Adjust the Webcam Brightness

Google Meet announced a new feature to correct the poor lighting during video calls. The new feature will detect when a Web user appears underexposed during a video call and enhances the brightness of their device to improve visibility. The new feature is launched to the individual users. The company announced the new feature in a blog post.

This means that there’s no admin control to this and users will be able to switch it on or off. The new feature comes after Google introduced a low-light mode on the Google Meet mobile app last year. The new feature is available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers.

Google said that using the new light adjustment may slow down users’ devices. Users can check for the new feature by going to the More option and then Settings . Then users must select Video and then Adjust video lighting. When the video light adjustment is on, Google Meet will be able to detect when users are underexposed during a video call and can automatically enhance the brightness of their device to improve visibility for others on the call. Even without the feature on, Google Meet will prompt users who are underexposed to turn on the automatic video light adjustment feature.

The low-light mode hit the Google Meet iOS and Android mobile apps last year. It should be noted that the automatic video illumination adjustment function necessitates the use of a 64-bit operating system. It also requires Chrome version M90 or above on Windows, Mac, or Linux.
