For more than a decade, G Suite has been on a journey to help our customers and users transform how they communicate and collaborate. We’ve invested in making Google Meet a secure and reliable video conferencing solution, and have accelerated development of critical features for customers, including offering premium features for free at the start of the pandemic. As the shift toward more flexible and distributed teams increasingly takes hold, video conferencing has become a fixture in how we connect and collaborate. Today, in partnership with Lenovo, we’re unveiling the next step in our vision to help customers prepare for the future with the Series One meeting room kits for Google Meet.

As companies consider their safe return to the office, many are planning for a mix of remote and in-person work environments. They are redesigning meeting spaces to allow for social distancing with larger, sparsely-populated rooms or many smaller meeting spaces. This makes it more critical than ever to implement video solutions that are helpful and inclusive. Series One is designed for this and comes with the best of Google AI built in—people can join meetings touch free with their voice, enjoy studio-grade audio through enhanced noise cancellation, and benefit from smart capabilities like automatic participant framing.
