Google Meet, Duo add support for Android TVs
As the need for virtual meetings goes up, Google upgrades video call function for Meet and Duo by adding support for Android TVs.
The company has recently added a feature of taking video calls to a bigger screen, making it possible with Google Meet on Cast. It could be used in meetings, online classes, and other virtual events.
To start out, you’ll need to have a Google account, an updated version of Chrome, and a Chromecast device installed with its latest firmware. This Google Cast function is accessible to all Meet users and it works on Chromecast, TVs with built-in Chromecasts, as well as Nest displays.
Meanwhile, a beta version of the Google Duo will be released on Android TV in the coming weeks. This allows users to make one-on-one and group video calls on a larger display without compensating its video quality. For TVs with no built-in camera, plugging in a USB camera can be an alternative.
