Google announced on Tuesday (24) that video calls made at companies and within Google Meet, may have a presence list. The novelty even allows the creation of presence reports that work both in small, interactive meetings and in live streams for many people.
Attendance already worked for users with the Google service for education, but now it reaches a large number of corporate customers. The feature allows the creation of data about the live broadcast, with details for the number of people watching at any given time.
Google Meet notes who joined and how long they stayed
As with the education tool, the search giant’s video calling service sends an email with the name, email and time of presence of each participant. There are two limits for the resource to work properly: the meeting must have between five and 250 guests.
The tool also creates a presence report from the very window where the meeting takes place on Google Meet, or on the Agenda to make it clear in the invitation that the presence will be noted. A counter in the corner of the screen shows the number of people watching the live at that moment. The tool resembles the counter interface used by Instagram in lives, but on the search giant’s side it only appears in the desktop or web version of the app.
The Google Meet presence list will begin to reach corporate customers starting this week, but it will not be available for any plans. It can be used for Workspace Essentials, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard and Enterprise Plus subscriptions, as well as for G Suite Enterprise for Education.
This means that Google Workspace Business Starter, Business Standard and G Suite Basic, Business, Education and Nonprofits subscribers will not be covered at this time – with no provision for the rule to change.
