Google is making some changes in Meet to ensure you can better see who, and what, you need to see in your meetings. Hopefully, these improvements help remote meetings feel more like in-person meetings.

Tiled view with presentations
Google recently announced tiled layout in Meet, where you can see up to 16 other participants in your meeting. Google is now making improvements to that layout to allow you to see other attendees even when someone is presenting. Presentations appear in a large tile, with the most active participants to the side or bottom.

Improvements to layouts in Google Meet 1

Saved layout preference
When you choose a new layout, this layout will be automatically saved as your preferred layout. This means it will be automatically applied for your future meetings, until you select a new one.

Additional UI improvements
Google made some minor improvements to the meeting UI to better utilize the space on your screen.
