There has never been a time that Video calls and meetings over the internet became part of human than recent days. While we have a lot of options for a video meeting platform around us, Google Meet is one of the most prominent choice out there. And now, the company is making it even easier to start new Google Meet calls on your devices.
The company recently introduced a way to start Google Meet calls from within Gmail on the webÂ and on yourÂ Android or iOS device. Plus, users can always run to Google Meetâ€™s website to start a call. However, now, you can simply use the shortcut â€˜meet.newâ€™ to start a meeting quickly.
Start Google Meet Calls Using the Shortcut â€œmeet.newâ€
All you have to do isÂ type meet.new in the URL bar of your web browser.Â Then, you will be taken to the starting page for a new Google Meet video call. Once here, you can join the call, or start presenting your screen. Meet will also show you the joining links and numbers that someone can use to join in the call with you, which is great.
By default, typing â€˜meet.newâ€™ will start a Google Meet call using the primary Google account you are logged in with. However, if you want to use another Google account hereâ€™s what you can do.Â Just append â€œ/1â€ or â€œ/2â€ etc to start the Meet call using your other Google accounts. Easy, right?
Google has been using these shortcuts for its other products as well. You can use forms.new, docs.new, sheets.new, etc to quickly create new forms, documents, and more. If youâ€™re interested, you can check how to create your own Google Chrome shortcuts as well.
