Google has made its video conferencing platform Meet better. One new feature is users can see 16 people on their screen. Previously, there were only four people. Meet's new gallery view comes when more people around the world are using video conferencing. People are speaking to family and friends during lockdown; companies are having meetings online; and schools changed from classroom teaching to online teaching.
Meet will help millions around the world in lockdown. Google wrote: "Remote work has become increasingly necessary for public safety and wellbeing." It said growing numbers of people are using Meet. Google says Meet lets people "share and be productive". New features will come soon. People can block out the background noise when others type. Users can also make the video quality better if their room is too dark.
