Google has come up with a solution for the most is one of the most prevalent issues during video calls. The company has added a new ability to Google Meet where it will notify users in case an Echo is detected from a system. Google meet will also suggest ideas to stop the echo.
An echo can happen when a device sends back audio into a call. Google Meet will notify about a notable Echo with a red dot on the more options button and text notification. The app will notify you as “You’re causing Echo…get help here”. Once Google Meet shows the red dot on the more options button, users can tap on it to open the Troubleshooting and help page.
The company shared this post via a blog post. Most of the time, Meet will intelligently control the audio to remove the echo. Sometimes it still happens and causes others to hear an echo from your device when they speak. Google says that until now, it has been difficult for you to know when your device is causing an echo. It also added that they will notify the users if they hear echo from your system to avoid unwanted disturbance for other participants.
