This February, Google added Picture-in-Picture (PiP) feature in its Chrome. In this feature, the user can play/pause, go back to the tab, or close it. Now, Google Meet uses the feature this major enhancement of the PiP feature of Chrome.
Chrome’s Picture-in-Picture feature lets the user do the following:
- Use in meeting chat
- Raise your hand
- Turn captions on and off
- More effectively resize the picture-in-picture view
- Access flexible layouts
Users can open the picture-in-picture from Meet’s overflow menu as previously. The interface of Chrome’s picture-in-picture future is quite similar to Google Meet on Android and iOS. In this, at the bottom, all controls are placed and your feed s shown vertically. Before, the user can turn off the camera or microphone and exit the meeting and UI shows as landscape.
Our new picture-in-picture experience provides greater flexibility when screen sharing or navigating to a relevant screen for a more dynamic experience.
This new advanced PiP in Chrome is available to all Google Workspace users and for personal Accounts also.
Lastly, Google also included this UI feature where we can admit people into meetings.
