Anonymous Users Blocked from Google Meet in G Suite EDU

A couple of weeks ago Google announced that
seven new features would be added to Google Meet over the coming months. According to an
announcement on the G Suite Updates Blog the first of those started to roll out today.

Starting today anonymous users will automatically be prevented from joining or asking to join Google Meet meetings hosted within a G Suite for Education domain. This will be the default setting for G Suite for Edu and can only be changed by a G Suite for Edu domain administrator who requests an exception from Google.

This is definitely a positive step for Google Meet. This is the feature that I’ve been looking forward to the most along with the ability to remotely mute all participants at once.
