Google has begun providing “unsupported peripherals” warnings for Chromebox for meetings to ensure end users have the best experience possible.
Currently managing a large Chromebox for meetings deployment is really a challenging task, because, admins have to manually do room checks to confirm that peripherals such as camera, microphone, and speaker are plugged in and working properly.
Now, with peripheral status monitoring, “admins can determine whether or not peripherals are working from directly within the Admin console.”
Just go to the admin console under Device Management -> Chrome devices for meetings -> View and manage Chrome devices for meetings. And, from there, select the specific device to see, and on the device screen, you will see a set of icons that identify the peripheral’s status: “A grayed out icon means the peripheral is not online.”
For more on supported peripherals, peripheral status monitoring, device health, and diagnostics, check the Help Center.
While Google Drive offers a convenient way to share files of any size, sometimes you need to receive large files as direct email attachments, so starting today, you can now receive emails of up to 50MB in Gmail.
However, sending size limits still remain at 25MB.
