Hangouts Meet hardware peripheral qualification program

The Hangouts Meet peripheral qualification program provides the infrastructure for customers to know their chosen peripherals have interoperability with their Hangouts Meet hardware. As part of the program, Google’s partner lab executes a set of published tests to ensure devices meet all requirements for interoperability. Approved devices are included on the Hangouts Meet qualified peripheral list.
