(Pocket-lint) – Google has announced that it’s updating Google Meet on the web with a new ‘picture-in-picture’ mode. This is a major multitasking feature that will let you see what’s going on during a Google Meet video call while still being able to perform other tasks on your computer. Here’s how this feature works.
How does picture-in-picture mode work in Google Meet?
Google offers picture-in-picture mode only as part of Google Meet on the web.
In other words, it’s only available if you join a Meet video call using meet.google.com in the Chrome browser. In this case, when you switch to picture-in-picture mode, you will be able to see up to four dating platform video tiles in a floating window on top of other apps. In a quick demo, Google showed how you can float your Meet video call to the bottom right of your screen and still do other things, including in the Chrome web browser, like sending an email.
How do I enable picture-in-picture mode in Google Meet?
- Start or join a Google Meet online video call from the Chrome web browser.
- At the bottom of your Google Meet tab, click More options (three points).
- Then select Open picture in picture.
That’s all !
