Google Meet (Duo), which was previewed at the beginning of this month, is introducing an account switcher while also adding a navigation drawer.
The search bar at the top of Google Meet, which was formerly the Duo program, has changed as of today. You now receive a conventional account switcher that identifies your Google One status instead of the three-dot overflow menu button to the right, which is especially pertinent given Google Workspace Premium.
This is helpful for the combined service’s meeting features and when switching between personal and professional accounts to join a call. You can always fast swap by swiping on your profile photo, or tap to see the entire list.
This modification has resulted in a navigation drawer at the left of Google Meet (Duo) that has links to Privacy in Meet, Settings, and Help and feedback.
Preferences have been improved, and they now begin by indicating which account you are currently signed in with. But you can’t tap the first line until you click Calling account under Calling options. Although the options presented here remain unchanged, they are clarified. Namely, a few Duo references have had their names changed.
From a design perspective, Google has been moving away from the navigation drawer. The fact that Google did not just include those three options in the account menu is odd. Nevertheless, if the Google Photos connection is ever widely implemented, Google Messages ought to acquire a navigation drawer. A similar situation exists with the SMS/RCS client’s video upload being connected to your Google Account.
Google Meet (Duo) version 174 introduces the account switcher with the pre-renamed.
