Occasionally someone will inadvertently neglect to sign out when a virtual meeting is over, their audio or video still streaming. Google Meet is introducing a new feature
to fix that. If you are the only person in a meeting, there will be a prompt after 5 minutes, asking if you are still there. You have two minutes to respond or be automatically removed from the meeting.
If there is a reason to be in the meeting alone – for example, if you joined early or are practicing a presentation – you can disable the prompt in the meeting’s settings.
