Similar to last year, Google Workspace will be present at I/O 2022 and will utilize it to introduce new features for Docs, Meet, and Chat.
Screen sharing is already supported by Google’s video conferencing service, but new live sharing enables third-party developers to integrate directly build Meet experiences into their app. For instance, this essentially enables you to view YouTube videos with others on the call by sharing your screen and displaying a Picture-in-Picture (PiP) window in the corner for them. Chromecast, iOS, and Android all support this.
Real-time video chat with others
To watch videos together, you can invite everyone to relocate your call to YouTube.
Co-Watching Users may alternately share movies and hear the most recent songs from their favorite artists thanks to a feature that synchronizes streaming app content across devices in real time. Users can now share controls like those for beginning and pausing videos or choosing new material in the app. Users can gather together to conduct an activity like playing video games or adhering to the same gym routine thanks to Co-Doing, which syncs arbitrary app content.
Google Chat (particularly group Spaces) will soon have auto-generated summaries similar to those in Docs, and Meet will eventually have studio-quality lighting. When you call from a basement, a kitchen, or any large or empty room, Google will also remove echoes from the call. Also coming to Docs are automated meeting transcriptions of video conversations.
At I/O 2022, Google also announced that it would extend its phishing and malware warnings from Gmail to Docs, Sheets, and Slides for questionable links.
