If you use Google Forms in your meeting, today’s your lucky day! We shipped a bunch of improvements to how we handle your forms, including:
  • Very long forms can be used, that window is scrollable baby!
  • Improved our embedding methodology (no more console errors 😬)
  • New direct link to the form, in case folks in your meeting are logged out or using the wrong Google account

We improved how duplicating a meeting works! Now, when you duplicate one of your existing meetings:
  • You can change details before actually duplicating (like date, title, and timezone)
  • Better automatic URLs are generated
  • The flyout for your newly duplicated meeting opens automatically

If you cloned an event, we’d re-use the same count of speakers and attendees. This is an okay assumption, but could lead to some incorrect reporting. We now recalculate these numbers from scratch each time.
