Nothing bothers me more than network and performance issues during video calls with my colleagues. It’s 2021, nearly a full year into the remote working life and (until recently) troubleshooting video quality issues wasn’t all that easy.
However, Google announced in a post recently that they have added new tools that allow users to see how their local desktop and network environments are affecting their meeting quality. With the new “troubleshooting and help” option on Meet’s three-dot menu, you can monitor network and performance as well as access helpful tips to solve your issues.
Meet does automatically adjust and maintain performance during video calls, but with this feature, they are making it more visible to the end user. With this new feature, you can monitor your CPU load and network stability, suggested actions to improve performance, and get real-time feedback on the effect of any actions taken amongst other things.
This feature is made available by default so, as the end user, you don’t have to worry about missing out! Meet is one of the multiple tools that form part of Google Workspace.
