The software powering the Series One is Chrome OS-based ‘Meet Compute System.’ The default voice control works via Google Assistant and you can choose between remote control or a 10.1-inch device to manage the meetings. But since the Series One is aimed at office meetings, Google is going to be charging them a premium. The Small Room Kit with smart audio bar, smart camera and compute system is priced at $2,699 (Rs 1,97,000 approx). While the Large Room Kit costs even higher at $3,699 (Rs 2,70,000 approx).

Google Meet likely to replace Duo for all users

Google Duo is reportedly going to be sacrificed very soon. The company is going to replace Duo with Meet for all its users. This was pointed out by 9to5Google this week, suggesting the Duo team was also surprised by this decision. Meet has been reinvigorated to compete with Zoom and Microsoft Teams in the market. Due to the pandemic, video conferencing tools have become popular, and Google brought Meet with host of changes to meet that demand. It also offered free access to the service for millions which is available till September and could get extended further.
