Google Launches More Online Learning Tools

Google has announced new updates as part of its online teaching event, 'The Anywhere School'. The concept behind the school is to make teachers, learners, and parents aware of the Google tools that they can use during the pandemic since learning has moved online. 


Some of the highlights of the event include the updates that Google will be making to some of its popular apps like Google Classroom and Google Meet. These apps that can be used to make doing homework and everyday life a bit easier.

Google Meet

Google Meet will be adding some new features soon to allow more people to join a meeting. You will soon be able to see 49 participants at the same time. 

Other features include: 

  • Hand raising - to give participants an equal chance to speak
  • Breakout rooms - this will make it easier for a large meeting to split into a smaller meeting group
  • Q&A - for the audience to ask questions
  • Polls - the results will be available instantly

Google Classroom

Google Classroom recently added an Autocorrect feature and Google has now announced that the app will also be adding more new features. These features include a to-do widget that will work as a virtual to-do list to help you keep track of work you need to get done. 

The app currently supports 54 languages, and it will now be adding 10 more. 

Socratic app

This app is mainly for high school learners. It gives visual explanations of the content covered in each subject. It can be useful if you're trying to understand the concept behind the subject you're learning.
