Last month, Google added integration for Meet with Gmail so users would be able to get work done without having to leave the Gmail app on their Android phone or on the web. Now, Google is redesigning the Meet app to look like the recently added Gmail tab. The announcement read:
"We’re updating the user interface (UI) of the Google Meet mobile apps for Android and iOS. The new mobile UI will have the same look and feel as that of the meeting experience in the Gmail app."
Currently, when the app is opened, it will have your front-facing camera feed on display with "New Meeting" and "Meeting code" buttons at the bottom. Sliding up lets users see video calls scheduled in Calendar.
In the redesign, users will see a "New Meeting" button, which gives them three options: Get meeting joining info to share with others, Start a Meet call instantly, and Schedule a new meeting in Google Calendar. The firm also dropped a preview for the "My meetings" list.
The new user interface is presently being rolled out on iOS devices, and to get this, users need to have the app version 45 or above. While the rollout to Android hasn't started yet, the blog post will be updated once it begins. The redesign will be available for all G Suite and personal accounts.
