To increase their popularity, Google Meet has had to face tough challenges from Zoom or Microsoft Teams from the very beginning. This fight, of course, is still going on. And that’s why the meeting platform is bringing new features to attract users. Google Meet recently announced the custom background feature in a blog post. This feature can be accessed through ChromeOS as well as Windows and Mac’s Chrome Browser. Google authorities claim that you do not need to install any software to take advantage of this feature.
