  • Google recently extended Hangouts Meet premium features to all G Suite customers through July 1, 2020 to support employees, educators, and students as they move to work and learn remotely.


    To improve the remote learning experience for teachers and students using Hangouts Meet, they’ve announced several improvements:


    • Only meeting creators and calendar owners can mute or remove other participants in a meeting
    • Meeting participants will not be able to re-join nicknamed meetings once the final participant has left

    Improved meeting control features:
