If you use Google Workspace in your enterprise, you probably know Google Meet Hardware.
Google Meet hardware is a hardware package needed to convert a meeting room into a Google Meet meeting room.
While you're using your room for a meeting, the main screen is used to broadcast other participants' cameras and screen sharing.
When you're not using the meeting room, the screen is only used to broadcast upcoming meetings:
Google Workpsace team announced that you can now use your Google Meet hardware-connected displays as digital signage.
This is good news but the best news is that Comeen Play is compatible with this feature!
1. To set up your Google Meet hardware as a signage screen, first navigate to the settings page.
2. Then copy the "auto association URL"
3. Now login to the Google Admin console and navigate to Devices > Google Meet hardware > Settings tab.
Select the "Device settings" section
4. Then, select the Organizational Units where are listed your Google Meet hardware and click on the "Screen saver" section
5. To set up Comeen Play as a screen saver:
On the Content settings select Custom and paste the previously copied URL from Comeen Play,
Set the Start after this many minutes of inactivity setting, meaning: after how many minutes Comeen Play should be launched automatically,
Finally, set the Show the Meet home screen this many minutes before the next meeting setting, meaning: Comeen Play will be stopped automatically X minutes before the next meeting.
6. Click on "Save".
Go back to Comeen Play dashboard, in the Display tab. As soon as Google Meet hardware launches Comeen Play for the first time (meaning: when the Google Meet hardware won't be used for the first time after the modifications have been done in the Google Admin console), a screen will be created and automatically associated to your Comeen Play user space
The screen is taking a random name since we have no way of identifying the Google Meet hardware.
To identify the screen and rename it, you can go to the room and see the name that is broadcasting to rename it inside your Comeen Play user space
You can now have a wonderful experience in your meeting rooms! 🔥
