Google makes it easier to find Meet content in Drive

Google makes it easy to find Google Meet content in Google Drive.

Users can now use the “Google Meet” app to find and organize Meet content in Drive, such as meeting recordings, chat transcripts, attendance reports, polls or Q&A reports, meeting transcripts and meeting notes created in Google Calendar.

“We hope this update will make it easier and faster for you to find files related to Meet events in Drive. For example, you can search for Meet transcripts based on the words they contain instead of their file format, Meet videos based on the folders they’re in (like My Drive) or Meet recordings based on the date they were saved, says in a blog post.

The feature will be available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers, as well as users with personal Google Accounts.

Improved UI in Calendar

Besides, it also introduces an improved user interface for sharing work location in Google Calendar.

In August 2021, it introduced the ability for users to share their workplace directly to their calendar. This update aims to improve workplace functionality by providing the same functionality to easily enter and update location information in a more compact format that uses screen space more efficiently.

It will be available for Google Workspace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, and Nonprofits, as well as G Suite Business customers.

Google Chat API

It also introduces the ability to create new spaces programmatically and add members to those spaces using the Google Chat API.

The feature is available in preview. Developers can request access through the Google Workspace Developer Preview program.

“Google Workspace admins can also use API commands in the admin console if they want to restrict access to Google Chat data as well,” he said.

This will be available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers.
