Event Rooms

Untitled

An Event Room is a new type of room that offers a different experience than a Meeting Room. Most notably, Event Rooms feature a Stage area, where people from the audience can take the stage and address the crowd. Additionally, Event Rooms feature a new set of Room Admin permissions, making it possible to shape the room environment to fit the style of event by limiting features that might be counterproductive or distracting.

Only event attendees that use the Take the stage button in the bottom left of the meet window can move to the stage and speak with the audience. Those not on the stage cannot use their camera or microphone, but can still communicate using GIF and emoji reactions or messages.
