We are rolling out updates to Google Meet to support our upcoming launch of Google Meet on Poly Android-based appliances. Within the Google admin console, admins can enroll Poly devices and include reporting of these new appliances. The Google Meet hardware experience will become available in the upcoming Poly OS 4.0 update as part of the Poly Studio X series family.
This update will become available over the next few weeks. However customers and admins can try out this experience ahead of the official Poly OS 4.0 launch by downloading the current beta candidate for their Studio X series device. For more information, please reach out to your Poly account team or reseller.
The Google Meet hardware experience will be available on the Poly Studio X series family once they have been updated to Poly OS 4.0. Admins can enroll these devices and manage them as part of the regular Google Admin console experience. The Poly Studio X family offers appliances of all sizes: Studio X30 for small rooms, Studio X50 for medium rooms, and Studio X70 for large rooms.
This latest update will make it easier for customers currently using the Studio X line to switch to Google Meet from other conferencing platforms. It also offers new customers more choice and flexibility in their hardware options for Google Meet.
Google Meet on Poly Android appliances require Google Meet hardware licenses; these can be purchased through authorized resellers. Please contact your existing Google Meet hardware or Poly reseller for more details.
- End users: No action required. Once a Studio X Series device has been successfully enrolled, you can join Google Meet meetings normally.
- Available on Poly X30, X50 and X70 with support for additional Poly devices will be added over time
- Available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers
To limit distractions during meetings, Google Meet offers noise cancellation to filter out background noises such as a closing door or the sounds of a nearby construction site. Beginning today, noise cancellation is:
- Available for users with personal Google Accounts on a wider variety of Android mobile devices.
- Available for Google Workspace Business Starter, Education Fundamentals, Education Standard customers.
- Enabled by default for third-party devices that connect to Meet using Pexip
Expanding this functionality helps make calls more productive by reducing distractions across a wider variety of devices.
- End users:
- Visit the Help Center to learn more about turning filtering out noise from your meeting on Google Meet.
- If you’re joining using a Workspace account, the meeting host's Workspace edition will determine the default state. You can turn the feature on or off from the settings menu.
- If you’re joining a meeting on an Android device with your personal Google Account, noise cancellation is OFF by default.
We’re updating the home screen on Series On Desk 27 and Board 65 devices to feature a “Connect device” button as a quick action.
One of the key values of the Desk 27 and Board 65 devices is the ability to use it as a primary monitor by connecting it to your laptop — by surfacing the “Connect device” button, you can take advantage of this capability faster. Further, this improves the discoverability of the feature, which was only accessible via a physical button on the back of the Desk 27 and Board 65.
