Google Meet lets you see more people at once on your smartphone.

What you need to know

  • A new tile view is rolling out for the mobile version of Google Meet.
  • The new layout will allow users to fit more people into view on a video call.
  • iOS users are getting the updated layout first, followed by Android „soon.“

Earlier this month, Google announced some changes it was making to its workspace apps to improve work-from-home productivity. One of those updates was for Google Meet, with new features like a native second screen experience to better navigate video conferences with multiple devices like the best smart displays. Another update that was introduced was a new layout for mobile devices that should make larger video chats better.

The new tile view for Google Meet allows users to fit more people into a video chat, up to eight people, while presenting a cleaner look. Each tile includes the person’s name and an icon to indicate when that person is speaking. Google also highlights split-screen and picture-in-picture support in Google Meet, allowing your meeting to continue uninterrupted while tending to other on-device matters. Background support is also coming, along with in-app Q&A and polls.

According to Google, the new tile experience is rolling out to iOS users first, while Android devices will receive the update „soon.“ Until then, it might be worth sticking to your PC or one of the best Chromebooks for your virtual meetings, especially if there’s a large group involved.
