Google is adding live subtitles to Google Meets beta titles for online meetings. To date, five major languages of the world are supported.
Google offers translations from English to Spanish, French, Portuguese and German. Live translations will help break down barriers for those who are not fluent in some foreign language during online meetings.
A trial version of the service is available for users of Google Workspace Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, and Teaching & Learning Upgrade.
The translations can probably look like the automatic translations of the caption text on YouTube, as sometimes the translations can look weird. The account administrator must start the trial itself and then run it during the meeting.
Google has recently added several features to its Meet video conferencing service that enhance the overall user experience. An example would be the recent notification feature if your device echoes during a call. If an echo is detected, a red badge and a text alert will appear on your screen, directing you to the device settings when you tap it.
In addition to this feature, Google Meet recently added a feature to automatically light up the user if they are not visible. Thanks to these features, Google Meet can become more attractive to users than Zoom.
