Google Meet users can start the transcription feature before starting the call
Google has announced that calls made using Meet will now be able to be transcribed into text, and users will be able to save the resulting text in a Google Doc format. The file that was stored can reportedly be retrieved from Google Drive, as stated by Android Central. After it took over as the default video calling software for iOS and Android devices, Google Meet quickly became one of the most widely used applications. However, Google has indicated that the new feature that is available in Google Meet for desktop or laptop clients is only available in the English language. This information was provided by Google.
According to Google, the transcribed file can be saved in the same “Meeting Recordings” folder as the original “folder of the Google Meet app that is located in the accompanying Google Drive storage. Before joining the Google Meet call, attendees will be notified that the call is transcribed. These transcripts are intended to capture the meeting’s discussion, serve as a record, and are helpful as a follow-up to attendees or hosts if they want to recall a particular segment or point in the whole discussion.
In addition to this interesting functionality, the “transcript will immediately be added to the relevant calendar invite for the meeting,” which is a “great perk.” The transcribed file will be made available to meeting organizers, hosts, co-hosts, and individual users who have already begun a transcription for events with more than 200 attendees. It is anticipated that the new feature will become available beginning on October 24.
Customers who have Google Workspace Business Standard, Google Workspace Business Plus, Google Workspace Enterprise Starter, Google Workspace Enterprise Standard, Google Workspace Enterprise Plus, Google Workspace Education Plus, and Google Workspace Teaching and Learning Upgrade will have access to it.
