Meet calls from Docs

 

You can now start or join a Google Meet call directly from within Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

During the call, Google Meet is docked to a side panel so that you can collaborate with your meeting participants on your document, spreadsheet, or presentation without having to switch between two different tabs.

This enables everyone in the meeting to collaborate in real-time while having a conversation—all from the same tab.
