Hangouts is renamed Google Meet
The company announced the name change in the video calling and chat service, as well as the incorporation of new functions and security measures
Google made a name change to its Hangouts Meet video calling service, which is now known as Google Meet, and will offer new features and security measures.
In the last official publication, the American company refers to the service only as Google Meet, eliminating the Hangouts name that it used until now, coming from Google’s chat service.
In addition, this video calling service introduced new features to improve security for students and teachers during the current situation of confinement due to the coronavirus.
In this way, only callers can silence or delete other participants and approve access requests made by external users.
Besides that, it is not possible to rejoin a call after the last participant has left it.
