What’s changing

We’ve added a setting in the Admin console to allow you to enable power-saving signaling over HDMI from Google Meet hardware. When enabled, this feature can help you save power by turning off Meet hardware displays when they’re not in use.

Who’s impacted

Admins only

Why you’d use it

Some displays, like those in conference rooms and lobbies, are often left on indefinitely, wasting power and shortening their useful lifespan. This setting allows compatible displays to be turned off automatically after 10 minutes of inactivity.

Displays are automatically turned on 10 minutes before a scheduled meeting or if a user interacts with the touch panel controller.

Additional details

You might need to turn on HDMI-CEC, change other advanced settings, or update the firmware on your display. Consult your displays manual for more information.
