The company has announced that it will begin appearing for “scheduled release” enterprise domains on June 1. Until then users will have to wait.

When Available for Desktop Users:

For the desktop users of Google Meet, it will also come to Meet conference rooms in the coming weeks. Google will soon make a way to reach this for the Desktop users.

Found Issues:

The users who already get this new version encountered some distribution in it and reported them. The listed issues are mentioned below:

  1. Missing videos
  2. Incomplete Captions
  3. Mirroring effect
  4. Flickering on the presented content on Chrome browser
  5. Blue outline is occasionally on a non-speaking participant

Moreover, users can solve these issues using various ways for the moment but a permanent solution is yet to come. While screen sharing, sharing a tab instead of a window or entire screen, and restarting the Chrome browser might help you to solve this problem momentarily.

However, the users who already get this new updated UI design can switch from the new look to the previous look until the 10th of June from the pre-call greenroom. After that, this new UI will become inevitable for all the consumers of Google Meet.
