Google has rapidly updated its videoconferencing Google Meet software, as the COVID-19 pandemic has meant more people rely on it now than ever before. But today, the company is announcing new Google Meet videoconferencing hardware — though the hardware is designed for conference rooms, not for your home.

The new Series One hardware, designed by Google but made in partnership with Lenovo, has a number of different pieces. There’s a 12MP Smart Camera and, for bigger conference rooms, a 20.3MP Smart Camera XL. Google says the devices can automatically frame participants in a meeting and sense how many people are in a room without using facial recognition, as well as digitally pan, tilt, and zoom.

There’s also a Smart Audio Bar, which has...

Google Duo to be available in Android TV soon

Tech giant Google has announced that its video calling application Google Duo is soon coming to Android TV. According to Mashable, Google Duo has been around for almost 5 years and has been available for Android, iOS, Web, and even Google's smart displays like the Google Nest Hub Max. Now, the tech company is expanding the support for Google Duo by bringing smart Android TVs under the ambit. "In an effort to bring the video calling experience to more parts of your home, Google Duo is rolling out a Beta on Android TV in the coming weeks," Google said in a blog post. If one's TV has a webcam, the user will be good to go with the video calls. But if it doesn't, the user could attach a USB webcam to the TV to receive and make video calls on the bigger display. As per Mashable, this announcement comes shortly after Google announced support for Google Meet - yet another video calling service from Google - on Chromecast. So, if Google Meet is your choice of video-calling service, you can now simply cast the call from your phone to a Cast-compatible device such as your laptop or your television.
