Google is as popular as segment leader Zoom and is desperate to make it fun to use. With the introduction of free video calling for all Gmail users, Google has already made Meet more accessible and matched with every Zoom punch. Today, the California giant is trying to make Meet more fun with personalized video calls.
Today, we’ll take a look at the new filters introduced in Google Meet and explain how you can use them during Meet calls.
What are the prerequisites for the new filter?
Google Meet is currently one of Google’s most important products, and the latest updates with new styles, filters, etc. suggest Google’s intention to make Meet the only video conferencing app in the lineup. increase. Many of the new filters, including animal faces, were brought in from Google Duo. To date, it was Google’s only video conferencing app with filter support.

As with Google Duo, Google Meet filters are only available for Android and iOS apps. Web clients are not supported at this time. In addition, you can use the filter only if you’re accessing Google Meet from your personal Gmail account. Gmail accounts associated with your work or institution cannot use filters during video calls.

Using the new filters in Meet is very easy and you can choose from a wide range of options. You can access this feature by joining a meeting with someone or creating a meeting using your personal Gmail account.
When you authorize the camera and enter the conference screen, you need to make sure that the camera is enabled. If you disable the camera and join the meeting, the new effect options will not be available.
To access the new Google Meet Effects, tap the Effects button (the button with three stars) at the bottom right of your camera preview.
This will bring up the Effects screen, which will make your video Hangouts more enjoyable.
Within “Effects”, there are five options: “No Effect”, “Blur”, “Background”, “Style”, and “Filter”. I’m interested in animal faces here, so swipe right until you see the Filter option at the bottom.
When you access the Filters, you can choose from a variety of options, including cats, dogs, purple elephants, fish, toads, and crocodiles.
Simply tap on your face to select the effect you want to apply to your face. You can tap filters to apply different filters. Once you’ve selected the one you like the most, you can tap the X icon at the bottom to close the Effects overlay.
Now you’re back to the main meeting screen and everyone can see you with your new avatar. You can also see the effect applied in the thumbnail of the meeting screen.

With Google Meet, removing filters isn’t too complicated. If you selected a filter during a meeting but want to disable it, first tap the Effects button in the camera preview at the bottom right of the screen.
This will bring up the Effects screen from where you previously applied the filter. To disable the filter, tap the No Effect tab at the bottom, then select the Cancel icon (the icon with a diagonal piercing circle).
The selected filter will be deleted. You can now tap the “X” icon in the effect overlay to return to the conference screen.
