Google Meet is rolling out a feature that will come in handy for virtual schools and organizations with large numbers of attendees. It will now allow a meeting organizer to approve bulk join requests. With remote schools and offices operating against the backdrop of the pandemic, many people have resorted to Google Meet.
The new feature will be of great convenience for organizers of meetings with a large number of participants. Attendees no longer have to wait for their “hits” or meeting requests to be approved as they can be done in one go.
“You can now accept all pending hits in bulk in Google Meet. Admitting participants or students all at once helps limit interruptions during the video call,” noted Google. The feature does not have admin control, however, only the meeting organizer can see or approve requests to join a meeting.
This feature will be rolled out over the next two weeks. It will be made available to all eligible Meet accounts, including Google Workspace and personal Google Accounts. To bulk admit participants and students to a video call, the meeting organizer can view or approve requests to join a meeting. The meeting organizer should remain in the meeting to approve requests. Attendees can be en masse admitted to a meeting by following these steps:
– Click Accept or Deny entry when a request to join the video call appears in the window.
– Select View all if multiple attendees are waiting to join the meeting. Choose from the Allow or Deny entry options next to a participant’s name to allow or deny participants one at a time.
–Click Admit All or Deny All to admit or deny all participants at the same time.
To remove people during a video meeting, follow these steps:
– Go to the people on the right side.
– Point at the person, then click the back arrow.
– Click Remove.
Users should note that they must be in the same organization as the meeting organizer to remove someone from a video meeting. Google has noted that for meetings hosted through personal Google accounts, only the meeting moderator can remove people from a video meeting.
Google Meet recently got the custom wallpaper feature which helps users set virtual wallpapers. Google Meet allows up to one hundred attendees and has set a 60-minute limit for free users.
This feature allows organizers to approve requests in bulk and will be useful for meetings with a large number of attendees.
