In addition, users kicked out of a meeting won’t be able to “knock” again, and Meet will no longer show “knocks” from someone after a moderator rejects them twice. To make meetings more secure, Google will block anonymous attendees from joining any Education meetings by default. Schools can allow anonymous participants to join classes if they want to, but it will be completely opt-in.

Aside from those moderator features, Google will also roll out a larger tiled view that can display up to 49 participants at once. Education meetings will come with a hand—raising button and an integrated collaborative whiteboard, as well, and will have access to closed captions in additional languages. While all aforementioned features will be available to all education customers, Google plans to release a few premium features for Enterprise users, including a student attendance tracker and breakout rooms so educators can split classes into smaller groups.
