Google improves sound quality in Google Meet, merge Duo

Written by admin

Changes are coming to Google Meet that will improve the sound quality of conversations by introducing stereo separation. The boys from 9To5Google have found a number of code sequences related to binaural audio and the aforementioned stereo separation in the latest version of the Google Meet and Gmail applications.

What is Stereo Separation?

Simply put, this means grabbing two separate audio channels and treating them separately. Google Meet can get different audio channels for different people speaking in a meeting, then blow them separately to the listening person’s left and right speakers. This allows people to understand who is speaking much more effectively and intuitively – normally these conference call apps just use a mono audio channel, putting everyone through the same speakers.

Google Duo Merger

A few days ago, Google has announced that it will merge Google Duo with Google Meet, or more specifically – integrate some Google Duo features into Meet. Again, there are sequences of code showing that this is happening.

These changes allow Google Meet to conduct 1-on-1 calls like Google Duo does, with the call associated with a phone number or Google account.
