Google Meet’s New Feature Lets You Multitask During Meetings, but at What Cost?

While Google primarily envisions picture-in-picture as a means to conveniently reference meeting notes and work-related documents, the addition of more features within the pop-out window minimizes the need for users to switch to full-screen mode. This freedom empowers users to engage in other activities such as browsing social media or making online purchases during the meeting.

Notably, a study by Slack revealed that workers spend nearly a full day each week on video calls, which many find exhausting and avoidable.

Google’s updated picture-in-picture mode aims to enhance productivity and user experience in Google Meet, allowing participants to effectively manage meetings while optimizing their multitasking capabilities.
