Many times it has happened that you have attended the meeting and then forgot to exit a meeting leaving you alone in the digital room. Google has taken notice that sometimes people do forget to exit meetings and that the entire experience of being in the digital room alone can be a bit eerie. So now Google has added the new feature to Google Meet that will prompt users if they forget to leave a meeting. We hope that this feature will help prevent situations where your audio or video is unintentionally shared, Google wrote in a post explaining the rationale behind introducing this feature.

With the help of a blog post Google said that now whenever a user is the only person in a meeting for five minutes, they will receive a prompt asking whether they want to stay or leave the meeting and if the user does not respond after two minutes Google Meet will automatically cut the meeting. 

The company also claimed that this feature will be turned on by default for its users. Users will also get the option to disable this feature manually. In order to manually disable this feature, follow the steps mentioned below:

For Android users, the company said that the feature will arrive on Android devices soon.

However, Google didn’t share the exact timeline of launch. These features are rolling out to all Workspace, G Suite Basic and Business, and personal Google accounts starting April 11th. It may take up to fifteen days for all users to see these changes. The ability to easily share screens and join — or leave — meetings at the right time should make leading and attending meetings much more efficient.
