Portrait Modes in Google Meet for Video Calls:
Subtle” and “Smoothing are the two available modes in Google Meet that can enhance your video call experience. If you want light cosmetic adjustments, then you can switch to “subtle” mode. Whereas if you want more cosmetic features such as teeth whitening, under-eye lighting, or overall complexion smoothing, then “smoothing” is best. However, if you didn’t choose a mode, this feature is designed to offer you light touch-ups. Additionally, the portrait touch-up features remain switched off by default, which you can enable in the Google Meet settings. This feature will change the user experience, and you will be more confident and comfortable while making video calls and conferencing.
Premium Google Accounts for Video Calls:
Currently, the feature is only available to Premium Google accounts, such as Business Plus, Business Standard, Enterprise Essential, Educational Plus, Google Workspace, and Google One. However, the portrait touch-up feature is currently unavailable to users with a personal Google account.
Popularity of Facial Filters:
The popularity of facial filters and smoothing effects in video-related applications such as Instagram, TikTok, and Bigo live prompted Google to include such features in its video call service. Therefore, Google introduces the beauty of its video conferencing platform. However, Google competitors such as Zoom and Microsoft Team have already added these features to their applications. Furthermore, this feature will encourage users who are hesitant to participate in a call because they believe they are unsuitable. Thus, the introduction of portrait touch-up modes in Google Meet will address the growing demand for cosmetic adjustments during video calls.
The increasing demand for facial fillers encourages Google to add beauty effects to its video call services. However, this feature is currently available for premium users and operates in two different modes, such as subtle and soothing. Both modes have their own specifications and limitations. The addition of beauty features will enhance your overall video call and conferencing experience.
