Tech giant Google has announced that Meet calls can now be transcribed into text and users can additionally 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 replacing the Google Duo app for iOS and Android devices. However, Google has declared the new feature accessible in Google Meet for desktop or mobile clients and is only available for English language.
Google said the transcribed file can be stored in the same “Meeting Recordings” folder in the Google Meet app from the accompanying Google Drive storage.
Before joining the Google Meet call, participants will be notified that the call is being transcribed.
These transcripts are meant to capture the discussion of the meeting, serve as a record, and are useful as a follow-up for the attendees or the host if they want to remember a particular segment or point of the discussion.
Another cool feature is that “the transcript will automatically be attached to the associated calendar invite for the meeting”.
And for meetings involving more than 200 participants, the transcribed file will be shared with meeting organizers, hosts, co-organizers, and individual users who initiated a transcription.
The new feature is expected to roll out starting October 24. It will be available to Google Workspace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Starter, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, and education and learning upgrade customers.
