Google Chat announced that users are now able to select more than one image or video at a time to send
A recent update will make it a lot less irritating to send several photos or videos over Google Chat. This improvement was made possible because of the update. The software that runs Google Chat just made an announcement that users can now select multiple images or videos at once to share along with their messages sent through Google Chat. Previously, users were only able to attach a single image or video, which frequently resulted in lengthy waiting and loading times for individuals who wanted to transmit many objects at once. The new inclusion will presumably enhance online collaboration all around, as this is one of its primary goals.
The feature is easy to use, which is something that the vast majority of us might probably guess already. You can select the photographs you want to transmit by going to the Google Chat of your choice, clicking through to the image selection menu, and then beginning to click on the images. After being selected, a picture can be deselected by clicking on it a second time. The sending of BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, WBMP, and HEIC files of up to 200MB in size is supported by Google Chat, as it was in the past. In a Google Workspace update blog post(opens in new tab) announcing the update, the firm revealed that users of iOS and Android would now be able to enjoy the new addition to the platform’s offerings.
There is no information available regarding when users of the web will be able to access the feature, but considering how well received it is likely to be, we do not anticipate that it will be unavailable for very long. This update comes as a result of a commitment made by Google Workspace earlier this year to assist in the enhancement of communication and collaboration for all types of organizations. Users may now initiate a Google Meet call (opens in a new tab) directly from their Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides files. In addition, Google Meet calls now include polls, Q&As, and automated noise cancellation across a wide variety of hardware.
Google Chat also recently added a new feature that enables users to establish group conversations (also known as Spaces) within the platform, which can then be shared with other people in your business (opens in a new tab). This new function was released quite recently. According to the company, this will be especially helpful for establishing and sharing “topic-based conversations” within your company, such as team discussions, how-to guides, and possibilities for mentoring. Video meetings should also now be more secure and engaging. The last point should include things like real-time responses and video that is put on top of another image.
