Welcome to Google meeting room hardware

Email subject line: Welcome to Google meeting room hardware!

The [your company name] IT team would like to tell you about an exciting opportunity—communicating and collaborating with your colleagues using Google meeting room hardware! We are currently installing this solution in our conference rooms and want to let you know about the exciting features and possibilities.

What is Google meeting room hardware? Google meeting room hardware converts a traditional conference room into a video conferencing room. You can use the room system to make video calls with other rooms and people connecting from their laptops or mobile devices. Because strong communication is much more than just talking, video calls give you the chance to see colleagues’ reactions, gauge their non-verbals, and work together on projects.

Where is Google meeting room hardware available? We’ve set up Google meeting room hardware in these rooms:

[room1]
[room2]
[room3]
[room4]

You can now use one of these rooms to make calls to other rooms in the list. From a laptop or mobile device, you can use Google meeting room hardware to join video calls with these rooms.

How do I use Google meeting room hardware​ in these rooms? Google meeting room hardware is easy to use. There is a table mat in each room that goes over the basics.

Where can I get more information about Google meeting room hardwarefeatures?

Contact your system administrator or internal support help center. [Insert your organization’s help center contact info here]

Does this feature impact any of my other G Suite?

A small change will appear in your Google Calendar: you can now choose your meeting names. Just click Hangouts Meet in Google Calendar. Google Calendar will suggest names, but meeting organizers can edit the name of the meeting. Joining a video call is still the same: you just click Join Hangouts Meet. But now you can enter the meeting name into a Google meeting room hardware device to join from a room or type the meeting name into g.co/hangouts.

How can I send feedback about Google meeting room hardware​?

Because we’re in a test period, you might encounter a few glitches or issues. If you do, please let our IT support person know. We want to make sure that Google hears your feedback!

Posters

Hang these posters in your meeting spaces and conference rooms. Let users know videoconferencing is available and how to get started.
