Ensuring your Hangouts Meet meeting rooms are always ready for the next meeting

We’ve enabled new features in Hangouts Meet to ensure your users always find their meeting rooms configured correctly and ready for their upcoming meetings. As an admin, you can now set a preferred mic, speaker and camera to use for all meeting rooms.

Going forward, if you’re using only qualified peripherals, the Hangouts Meet device will automatically reset back to the recommended configuration for microphone, speaker and camera between uses. If you’re using other peripherals or custom configurations, an alternative default configuration can also be configured in the Admin console.

To do this, open the Admin console, navigate to Device management > Google Meeting room hardware, and then find the specific unit whose default peripheral you’d like to change. Click on that unit, open the device health section, and click the desired device.
