Google Introduces New Hide Title Feature for Google Meet


Google has rolled out a new update for Google Meet. Thus, it allows users to hide tiles with no videos in a meeting. This update aims to help reduce screen clutter. Additionally, it focuses on video-enabled participants. However, it still allows users with their videos off to be shown on screen if they speak.

How to use the feature?


To use this feature, users can go to Settings and select “Change layout.” This setting only affects the user’s view, and other participants won’t be affected. Participants without video will still appear on the user’s screen if they start speaking.

Thus, it will show the presentation in a large screen format with up to three participants.
