Quick launch summary
Google Meet will now automatically enhance your video to adapt to low light conditions. Now, you can take a video call from anywhere, even with suboptimal lighting, on your Android or iOS device without fear that others on the call won’t be able to see you.
Video enhancements will begin five seconds after entering an area with low light. As your lighting conditions change, Meet will intelligently adapt, for example increasing enhancements as lighting conditions worsen and turning processing off when lighting conditions improve.
As mobile devices have different camera hardware and processing capabilities, the actual end result may differ between devices.
