Last week, Google continued adding features to create a more seamless WFH experience. Some notable launches included new guardrails against disruptive Google Meet participants, increased availability of Assignments for all G Suite for Education customers, and a more integrated G Suite experience in across web and Android apps.Learn more about these new features and more in the links below.

Block Google Meet Participants From Knocking Again
G Suite Updates | Previously, when disruptive members were ejected from a meeting, they were able to continue disrupting the meeting by either re-joining or continuously knocking. Note, if the moderator mistakenly ejects a participant, they can still add that participant to the meeting by manually inviting them.

Assignments Now Generally Available for G Suite for Education Customers
G Suite Updates | Google is making Assignments generally available as a Core Service for G Suite for Education customers. It was previously available in beta. Assignments is an add-on for your school’s learning management system (LMS), which simplifies the process of creating and grading coursework with flexible, collaborative, and easy-to-use tools.

Enable the New Integrated Experience in G Suite Across the Web and Android
G Suite Updates | Google recently announced a new integrated workspace that brings your favorite G Suite apps closer together. It’s now rolling out this workspace to Gmail on the web and Android.

Ring Groups in Google Voice Now Generally Available
G Suite Updates | Google is launching automatic call routing rules with ring groups in Google Voice. With ring groups, multiple people in your organization can make and receive calls from the same Google Voice number. This feature was previously available in beta and is now generally available.
