If you use Google+ hangouts for your daily meeting’s or with a larger audience then you might have faced this one constant problem: When one or more of your hangout participants type on their keyboard, all you hear is the keystrokes instead of the actual conversation.
This is very annoying and can’t have a productive conversation. Don’t worry, this new feature comes to your rescue.
Going forward when hangout senses someone typing, his mic will be automatically muted with a notification Sounds like you’re typing so we muted your mic and mic icon in red (refer image below).
- This is only applicable to hangouts with 4 or more participants
- Mic is automatically muted when a participant starts typing. That participant will see the message and his mic icon in red (For others in the hangout, no visible difference but without annoying keystrokes)
- Mic will be un-muted as soon as they stop typing (Unless they manually mute their mic)
This is a life saver for people using hangouts everyday. Enjoy and please share your thoughts about his useful feature.
