Set the default camera framing option for Google Meet hardware devices, and other framing updates

What’s changing

We’re introducing several updates around framing controls for Google Meet hardware devices:

First, we’re introducing an admin setting which will allow admins to choose a default framing option for their meeting spaces, ensuring every meeting begins with an optimally configured view. This will help your users jump right into their meetings without having to re-adjust camera settings from the previous meeting. This can be set individually for each device or via the bulk updates across your fleet.

Next, we’re adding framing support on whiteboards (Series One Desk 27 and Board 65) and remote controlled only Google Meet hardware devices, which will help ensure optimal camera framing on these devices.

Finally, we’re making a few small adjustments to how camera framing settings appear on hardware devices. For Meet on Android, we’re removing the “Continuous framing” toggles and replacing them with a “Framing by” toggle. Depending on the third-party devices you’re using, you’ll see “Framing by Logitech”,“Framing by Huddly” or “Framing by Poly”, for example. We’re also changing the “Home” button to “Reset to default”.
