Following up on its initiative to combine Google Meet with Google Duo and invest in the first app as the main video calling channel, the next Meet update should bring new tool shortcuts that can be used during chats, such as the app to-do lists GQueues, the virtual card game Uno, the Kahoot quiz, and YouTube.
In the coming weeks, the idea is that the user who wants to bring these new interactions can choose between the icons of the partner applications and then be directed to a kind of “third application”, which integrates the quality of the group call and transmits the desired content live. For iOS device owners, this novelty may be further away, as the idea is to integrate Google Meet and the new features into the Android system.
There is speculation that for games like Uno a new lobby will be created so that the participant only needs to tap to join. There will also be the possibility for everyone on the call to have access to a remote control and be able to pause and resume content whenever they want. However, there are still no details on how media apps like YouTube and Spotify will be synced between callers.
There is still no forecast of when the new features will be able to be used freely by users, but it is estimated that the full integration between Meet and Duo will take at least a month. To follow the news about this merger, follow the Google Meet topic here at Tudo Celular.
