Meanwhile, people are still waiting for the issue to get resolved. No official statement about the server down has been made yet. It was only a few days back that Google Meet for web had introduced a new User Interface (UI) for its users. It will now show suggestions in the form of gentle notifications that will appear as a bubble and red dot over the 'More Options' button next to 'End Call' in the refurbished bottom bar.
The platform will now give users personalized suggestions and recommendations on how to improve their call quality. This will revolve around battery level, bandwidth, and network connection, and presentation status. However, just days after the big announcement, the stalling of Google Meet comes as a surprise to its users.
