Enhancements to Google Meet viewer mode

Enhancements to Google Meet viewer mode improve user participation and gives hosts greater flexibility

What’s changing ?

Earlier this year, Google introduced viewer mode for meeting attendees, which allowed a subset of attendees who could observe a meeting but not share their audio or video to the meeting.

Beginning today, Google are introducing additional features for viewers and hosts: 

  • First, viewers can now send emoji reactions during a meeting, which is a lightweight, non-disruptive way to engage and participate in meetings without interrupting the speaker. 
  • Next, meeting hosts and co-hosts will be able to promote a viewer to a meeting contributor while the hosts are using picture-in-picture mode. This gives hosts greater flexibility and saves time when needing to change participant rights without having to leave PiP mode.
