6 Ways to Improve Meetings with Google Jamboard

Google Jamboard is an online interactive whiteboard that enables real-time collaborative idea generation with others. It is built on the idea of maximum cooperation and the principles of joint work. Here are six ways to improve meetings using Google Workspace Jamboard in three main areas: connection, collaboration, and productivity.

  1. Integration with Google Meet
  2. Google Jamboard integrates with Google Meet (ex. Hangouts Meet) so you can interact and work with anyone, no matter where they are. The Jamboard is equipped with a wide-angle camera, a built-in microphone, and loud dual speakers for high-quality calls.

    Google Workspace users on the Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, and Teaching & Learning Upgrade plans can now add up to 100 participants simultaneously on a single Google Meet conference call, up from 25 previously. This expanded capacity allows more users to join meetings and collaborate. Additional Google Meet upgrades include improved video quality, noise cancellation, and screen sharing capabilities.

  3. Facilitate brainstorming from any device
  4. Have you ever sat in a meeting with a brilliant idea but couldn’t express it because the topic was already off the agenda? Or did you attend a meeting remotely and feel it was difficult to express your thoughts because you didn’t want to interrupt the flow of the meeting?

    You can express yourself on the board using the Jamboard app. Your ideas will be added to the Jamboard Idea Email in real-time.

    To do this, download the application from the AppStore or Play Market on mobile devices, tablets, or desktop computers.

  5. Part of Google Workspace (ex. G Suite) Family
  6. Jamboard, seamlessly integrates into Google Workspace ecosystem, offering real-time whiteboard capabilities for enhancing meetings and brainstorming sessions. Together with real-time video conferencing for up to 100 people per call, recording, dial-in access, and Jamboard make Google Meet a versatile and comprehensive video meeting solution. This tight integration with Google Drive, Gmail, Calendar, and other apps creates a seamless experience for recording, accessing, and sharing meeting videos and collaborative work within an organization.

  7. Up to 16 simultaneous touch points
  8. Jamboard is a highly versatile and collaborative tool that boasts the impressive ability to recognize and respond to up to 16 points of contact simultaneously. This feature is made possible by its expansive 55-inch screen, providing ample space for multiple team members to engage and interact at the same time. With Jamboard, your team can seamlessly come together, brainstorm, and generate innovative ideas on a single device, enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of collaborative work. This advanced level of interactivity not only promotes creativity but also facilitates a smooth and dynamic teamwork experience, making it an invaluable asset for productive meetings.

  9. Search the web from your Google board
  10. You do not need a phone or laptop nearby to find the information you need. You can search directly from the Jamboard and save the information you need to the board you’re working on.
    You can also pin a part of a web page and save it to disk or use images from the Google database, which are not protected by copyright and are entirely available to visualize your thoughts.

  11. Record your appointments
  12. One of the key features in Google Meet is the ability to record meetings and save them to Google Drive for later viewing, providing a simple way for users to capture important meetings, trainings, and events.

    With Google Meet integrated into Google Workspace, users can easily record a video call with up to 100 participants and access the saved recording within Drive. This makes it simple to share the meeting recording with anyone needing to view it after the fact.

    In addition to these capabilities, Google Meet also offers dial-in access, allowing remote viewers to join calls from any device and location. Between call recording and dial-in access, Google Meet provides flexible options for capturing meetings and enabling participation.
