"Additionally, delegated co-hosts can handle responsibilities such as muting participants, launching polls and managing Q&As, giving you more time to focus on leading discussions and guiding attendees through presentations," said Google.

When enabled, hosts can now limit who can share their screen, limit who can send chat messages, mute all with one click and end the meeting for all,

For applicable Google Workspace editions, Meeting hosts can share hosting privileges with other meeting participants — up to 25 per meeting — by granting them host controls in the People panel.

The quick access control will be on by default. When quick access is enabled, meeting participants from your domain can automatically join the meeting from a mobile or desktop device, and by dialing in, informed Google.

For admins, in the coming weeks, Google will introduce a setting that controls whether the Host Management settings will be on or off by default.
