Google today announces that the video conferencing service Google Meet will integrate into Gmail app for both Android and iOS users over the coming weeks. With this integration, users don’t have to install or need Google Meet app to join meetings.
Erika Yamasaki, Product Manager, in an official blog said,
In the coming weeks, you’ll soon notice a new Meet tab on your phone’s Gmail app where you can see upcoming meetings scheduled in Google Calendar, and easily join them with a single tap.
How does it work?
When you get a meeting invitation via Gmail, you have to tap on the URL to join the meeting without any additional steps.
The user also has the option for a new meeting to start, generate a meeting link with the share option, and schedule a meeting in Calendar.
Moreover, if the user taps on “Join with a code” option, the user can join the meeting by entering the meeting code.
Users those who want to disable the new Meet tab can simply disable it easy steps:
Settings > Account > Meet > uncheck Meet option
This integration is also available in Gmail Web. Users can access it from the left panel options.
Google, with the integration of Google Meet in Gmail, is definitely an impressive and hustle free move for the users who initiate or join meetings while working from home.
