A lot of us are still unaware of Google’s meeting icon, which looks like a triangle with the letters “G” and “M” in it.
Its supposed to signify an email or a link, but Ive seen no evidence of this.
Google’s own design team explained the meet icon as “a placeholder for information that needs to be displayed for users to confirm their email or to log in to Google.
If you are not a member of the email list, then you will not see the meeting icon in the Gmail interface.
To create the meet icons, Google created three different icons that each represent a different part of Gmail.
Each icon has a blue background and is a different color.
The icons were chosen based on the information that was being presented to a user during the meeting, and they were not chosen to represent a specific group of users.
Google also made the icons different sizes.
These icons are only used for the email group, not the search group, which has a white background and the letters G and M in it.”
Google explained that the meeticons were created in response to requests from users.
“We want to show users that they can share information about the meetings they have had with us and that the information they share is important and helpful to the people they are meeting with,” Google’s David Marcus said.
The Google logo is seen on a computer monitor at Google headquarters in Mountain View, California, U.S., July 25, 2021.
REUTERS/Robert Galbraith/File PhotoGoogle also offered a “How To” guide for users of the meet-icons.
“In the first few days after you create the icon, it should not take more than a few seconds to create it,” the guide said.
“After a few days, we hope you will see a lot more use for the icon and become more likely to share it.”
The meet-icon is a placeholder, not an indicator Google says is a sign that a user is at a meeting.
In a blog post last week, Google explained how it uses meet icons to help users better organize their inboxes.
Google told Business Insider that “the meet icon does not actually indicate whether or not a user has left the meeting or whether or no one is there.”
