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.
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.
