From IT:  Google Meet - Enterprise Edition  - Launched 10/13/2020

We are very excited to announce that yesterday, we launched Google Meet Enterprise to bring some exciting new tools to each of the staff members.  Some extensions that you were using are now built into the program.   Here are some of the features: 

Hand raising (coming soon): Increase participation in larger meetings by enabling participants to “raise their hands” when they have a question or something to say.

Meeting attendance(coming soon): Give meeting hosts a simple way to see who attended their meeting.

Breakout rooms: Make it easy for large meetings to split into smaller groups, have parallel discussions, and reconvene once finished. 

Q&A: Provide a channel for the audience to ask questions without disrupting the flow of the conversation.

Polling: Engage participants in large meetings with real-time polling.

Change layout: Allows participants to change the number of tiles to view on the screen from 6 all the way up to 49.  Replaces the “Grid View” Google Extension.

Additional moderator controls (coming soon): Give meeting hosts additional controls for muting, presenting, joining, and more.
