Google Meet, a popular video conferencing platform, has recently announced the launch of 1080p video call support. However, this feature is exclusively available to select Google One and Workspace paying users.
Accessing the Feature
To access the 1080p resolution feature, users must use the web-based version of Google Meet and have a webcam that supports the resolution. Google recommends users have additional bandwidth as 1080p video calls require higher bandwidth. In case of limited bandwidth, the resolution will be automatically adjusted.
Enabling the Feature
Enabling the 1080p feature is easy; users can turn it on by selecting the three dots located in the upper-right corner of their video feed and then clicking on “Turn on HD video”.
Significance of the Feature
Previously, Google Meet supported resolutions up to 720p or lower. The addition of 1080p resolution is a welcome development and brings Google Meet on par with other video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams that already support 1080p calls.
Access to the Feature
Google Meet’s 1080p video calling feature is only accessible to users who subscribe to Workspace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Starter, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, the Teaching and Learning Upgrade, Education Plus, Enterprise Essentials, and Frontline. It is also available to Google One users with a minimum of 2TB storage.
In summary, Google Meet’s exclusive 1080p video calling feature is a game-changer for those who value high-quality video calls. The addition of this feature will make Google Meet more competitive with other video conferencing platforms and will certainly attract more paying users.
