The new features will include 49 people in a single video call for free/non-enterprise users, 100-people video calls for Google Nest users, blurred and custom backgrounds, new moderator controls, polling, and “hand-raising”.

Google Meet currently allows only 16 participants in one call, which has put it behind Facebook’s Messenger Rooms and Zoom. To take on Zoom, Google has announced a free Meet user will allow up to 49 participants in one video call.
