Google Meet adds support for cross-domain live streaming, captions in live streams

With Cross-domain live streams, you can extend the viewership not only to the guests within your organization but also to guests in another trusted Workspace domain. Captions in live streams can help make meetings more accessible by enabling users, especially deaf and hard-of-hearing users, to read what’s being said in the live stream. They are also useful to other users who prefer to read text rather than listening to get more out of the meeting.

Google has added two new features to improves live streaming in Google Meet. These include Cross-domain live streams to extend viewership and captions in live streams to make them more accessible.

Depending on the Workspace edition, up to 100,000 users can watch the meeting from the web or their mobile device using Google Meet live streaming.
