G Suite Updates – Meet and Drive Sharing Dialog

Google Meet

Google Meet Accessible from Gmail

You can now start or join a Google Meet video meeting directly from Gmail (Meet is an alternative to Zoom).

Google has added shortcuts to these features to the bottom-left corner of your Gmail.

As a reminder, you can also add Meet video conferencing to a calendar event.

Improved Sharing Dialog in Drive

Also, Google is updating the sharing dialog in Drive. It’s now easier to grant specific permissions to others, without risking access beyond what’s necessary.

You’ll start to see this in the next week or so.

In case you missed it, the Office of Information Technology now offers a 10-Minute G Suite Tip every Tuesday at 10:00 am. After the tip, the meeting is open for questions about any of the G Suite applications.
