Google Plans To Make Google Meet Automatically Adjust Webcam Exposure


Google Meet which is a real-time meeting by Google has been reported to be planning to make it easier for users to see all fellow users properly on video calls. The web version of the app can detect when someone is underexposed due to bad lighting and it will then increase the brightness so it will be easier for users to see their cohorts and perhaps make them get a clearer view if a user is having a terrible webcam.


Google Meet was released last year with low-light mode can be accessed through browsers or apps for free. The new feature will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to examine light levels and tweak the brightness. There is no admin control that users can use to adjust the feature but they can switch it off.


According to Google, enabling the feature can slow down a user’s device that’s why the switch icon is available.
It was also said that the automatic exposure adjustment feature will make it easier to see all your co-workers or friends in video calls and with a clearer feed, even if the user is having a bad webcam.

“The new exposure feature will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to examine light levels and tweak the brightness.”


The exact time when this feature will start functioning wasn’t revealed, but it should be later in the year.


Google Meet was created in 2020 and it is one of two apps that constitute the replacement for Google Hangouts, the other being Google Chat.
