Google Meet is one of those versatile video conferencing apps which is being used big time, both by organisations and individuals. As a result, Google has been consistent with adding features to its apps and the latest ones to join the list include 360-degree background support, both on and iOS.

As per a blog post from Google, the company is adding a new feature to Google Meet called 360-degree background where it uses the gyroscope or orientation data of the smartphone to move the background on the basis of how the user moves their head. Users can choose the background from the multiple options available in Google Meet. The feature has been rolled out for all Android and devices.

The 360-degree background feature on Google Meet is currently accessible by all Google Workspace users, and those using personal Google Accounts. It is to be noted that admins can turn off these backgrounds when needed.

Another update pushed for Google Meet is called editable widgets for Chat cards which will enable developers to use interactive widgets like checkboxes, radio buttons, and dropdowns. The feature will enable users to modify information such as changing the assignee’s name or moving the due date for any task.

Apart from that, Google recently also announced that in the coming months, it’ll migrate Reminders from Google Calendar and Google Assistant to Google Tasks to create a single experience for managing to-dos across Google.

In related news to Google, the company also unveiled BARD a while back. Bard is an experimental conversational service powered by LaMDA, which is a Language Model for Dialogue Applications. It is currently available to external testers, and the company says it will be available to the public in the coming weeks.
