Google announced on Tuesday the integration in the coming weeks of its Meet video conferencing service with its collaborative digital whiteboard Jamboard, in order to facilitate remote work and class sessions.
The integration of the two services of the technology multinational Google allow users to create or open a session on the board during a video call with Meet, as well as save, share and continue the same session at a later time.
The creation or opening of a whiteboard is only possible for those users who have joined the video call from a computer, as indicated by Google in their GSuite blog. Users who follow the digital meeting through their mobile phone will have access to a link that will redirect them to the Jamboard application.
The combination of both tools and their functionalities will be of great help for students who currently have to take classes and follow courses from home, as well as for workers who perform their functions remotely due to quarantine and social distancing due to Covid -19.
The company began the integration of Meet and Jamboard on Tuesday, and it is expected to be completed in the next two weeks. In this regard, they have announced that it will be activated by default.
