Delhi : Google has upgraded the Google Meet video call resolution from 720p to 1080p, according to an official post. Users will be able to utilise the Google Meet app to experience HD video calling as a result. In the last few months, Google Meet has added a tonne of new features.

Notably, Google Meet got 360-degree backdrops and in-call emoji comments in February. In order to enable the presenter concentrate on what he or she has to say, it recently incorporated the capability to restrict or turn off other participants' video streams. Currently, Google Meet is getting a new feature that will improve your 1080p HD calling experience.

1080p video calling capability of Google Meet is by default disabled

Please take note that normal and personal Google accounts are not eligible for the 720p to 1080p upgrade. This service, which primarily targets Business and Enterprise users, will only be accessible to Google One subscribers with 2TB or more of storage space.

You require a device with a 1080p camera in order to use the feature. To use HD video calling, the feature must be explicitly turned on as it is disabled by default. When users enter a meeting, they will get a notification asking them to enable the feature.

Accounts with Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Education Fundamentals, or accounts belonging to other users are not eligible for the feature. Check out the announcement here for a complete list. Google Meet has now joined the list of Microsoft Teams and Zoom, which, incidentally, do not by default support 1080p video calls. Users are beginning to receive the functionality, which will progressively extend to everyone until May 4.
