Tech giant Google has announced that Meet calls can now be transcribed into text and users can further save them in Google Doc format.
According to Android Central, the saved file can be accessed from Google Drive.
Google Meet is one of the most popular apps, especially after it replaced the Google Duo app for iOS and Android devices. However, Google has introduced a new feature that is accessible in Google Meet for desktop or laptop clients and is only available for the English language.
Google said the transcribed file can be saved to the same “Meeting Recordings” folder of the Google Meet app from the accompanying Google Drive storage.
Before joining a Google Meet call, participants will be notified that the call has been overwritten.
These transcripts are intended to capture the meeting discussion, serve as a record, and are useful as a follow-up for participants or hosts if they want to recall a particular section or point throughout the discussion.
Another neat feature is that “the transcript will automatically be attached to the associated calendar meeting invitation.”
And for meetings with more than 200 participants, the transcript will be shared with meeting organizers, hosts, co-hosts, and individual users who initiated the transcript.
The new feature is expected to be launched from October 24. It will be available to Google Workspace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Starter, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus and Teaching and Learning Upgrade customers.
