What Does Your Google Meet Background Say About You?

Google Meet is a voice and video meeting tool that allows you to collaborate virtually face-to-face. Meet includes tools such as screen-sharing and chat that allows businesses and teams to stay productive and connected whether you are working together in the office or globally distributed. There are also settings such as custom video meeting backgrounds that are just downright fun. Although video backgrounds are primarily used for self-expression, they are also a great way to maintain some privacy, especially for business professionals who are working from home. There’s usually more to your Google Meet background than just picking something at random. Your Meet background may reveal some major hints about who you are and why you’re so awesome.
