You can set the Hangouts Meet camera to automatically zoom in on all the meeting participants in a room. The camera doesn't zoom in on individual speakers. Seeing all the participants in the room up close makes it easier to:
- Read facial expressions and body language.
- Maintain eye contact with meeting participants.
- Smoothly take turns in the conversation.
Before you begin
- Autozoom requirements:
- A Hangouts Meet hardware kit Chromebox and Huddly® GO Camera.

- Position camera a maximum 11.5 ft (3.5 m) from the farthest person.
- Have participants at eye level and facing the camera.
