Google Adds Chromecast Support To Google Meet

Google Meet now lets you cast your video conferences to larger screens through Chromecast support.

Google has continued to enhance Google Meet by adding new features. The latest addition is support for Chromecast. This feature will allow users to mirror your meetings on your TV.

You can still use the camera, microphone, and audio from your computer. Google Meet’s Chromecast support is available to all smart TVs (with built-in Chromecast) and TVs connected with Chromecast devices.

“We recognize that many schools are moving to distance/remote learning, and we wanted to support this new learning environment for teachers and students. Meet on Chromecast will let you host or join meetings giving you the opportunity to connect with classmates, collaborate on projects, and even attend lectures,” Google’s Grace Yang wrote on the Chromecast support forum.

The latest update comes weeks after Google rolled out Meet support on Nest Hub Max smart display.

The company also plans to improve the platform for online classrooms. For instance, moderators of education meetings will have more control to manage their virtual classes.

In order to use the casting feature, you have to update your chrome to the latest version. Further, update your Chromecast device firmware to the latest version.
