Big data has been a pivotal asset in modern businesses. Major tech companies like Google regularly use big data to offer higher quality services to their customers.

Google is one of the companies that has always used big data to its full effectiveness. They have used big data in their Gmail services to offer better features to their customers. In the past, they used new forms of big data technology to offer more robust security. However, there are other major benefits as well.

Google has recently found an application for data technology in their Gmail platform. They are using a new VoIP service that relies heavily on sophisticated big data technology.

Big Data Advances Help Make VoIP a Reality for Gmail Users

Gmail’s goal is to become your go-to center for more than simply communications, according to Google. Even though there are other enterprise VoIP solutions that companies of any size may add to their account for a cheap, easy-to-use business telephone service. Google is releasing a bigger data-centric Workspace upgrade that will bring direct talking to the Gmail mobile app via Google Meet.

Users will be able to call individuals directly through their Gmail mobile or Web applications using Google Meet. The call will be received via the Gmail app rather than the separate Google Meet app, though the latter will be able to originate and make VoIP calls in the future, according to Google. Big data advances will help streamline this considerably.

Together with emails, the new features revealed by Google combine the newest Workspace technologies into the Gmail tool, which now includes three tabs for Chat, Spaces, and Meet. Users will be able to make one-on-one calls directly from Google Meet with complex data-driven technology without needing to first create a meeting link.

The fact that Gmail was the first area Google considered putting its calling function demonstrates how significant Gmail has become in the wider Google Workspace improvements. Gmail is now effectively Google’s version of Microsoft’s Outlook. It serves as a focal point for a range of services.

This, according to Google, will make meetings more spontaneous.

Google now creates URLs that consumers may use to join Google Meet video conversations. With this new feature, users will be able to make calls without having to create a meeting and share invite links with other participants thanks to the new Google Meet calling option.

This is a step toward making “meetings more spontaneous” according to Google. They may even incorporate their other Gmail analytics tools into the VoIP features.

“Our intention is to bring Meet calling to all the natural endpoints in Workspace where you’d initiate an ad-hoc call including chats, people cards, and Spaces, but this will come first to one-to-one chats within the Gmail mobile app.” said Google’s Senior Director of Product Management, Sanaz Ahari.

The Spaces tab, which was formerly known as ‘Rooms’, is now rolling out to Gmail users. It’s a specific location for better collaboration, according to Google, and it’s connected with other Google Workspace apps like Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Meet, and Tasks. Users will be able to share documents using the group chat function, and the space will save their whole discussion history. More features will be introduced to spaces in the “coming months,” according to Google’s blog post.

Google is striving to give additional tools for hybrid meetings in addition to incorporating new capabilities into Gmail. In November, Google will launch a Companion mode in Google Meet. Users may use their laptop to host or attend a meeting from inside a meeting room, making use of the in-room audio and video. They will be able to bring presentations, papers, and other materials to the meeting on their computers, as well as see shared content up close.

The Series One kit was built with direct interaction in mind, using cutting-edge technology that enables more seamless, inviting, and inclusive virtual encounters. Other companies-built Series One devices to seem like they belong in Google’s design style, and they only function with Google’s software. Google has teamed up with Cisco WebEx to make video conferencing easier and to guarantee that equipment built for Google Meet can dial into meetings.

Google’s goals for Gmail are quite obvious. It’s becoming a hub for all business communication, not simply email and periodic meetings, similar to Microsoft Outlook. This is unsurprising given Google’s direct competition with Microsoft Office.
