Google has expanded the capability to stream high-quality 1080p webcam feeds during group calls for its Workspace subscribers.

Initially, this feature was introduced for one-on-one sessions in April. Now, it's available for group web calls involving three or more participants.

Once enabled, a 1080p icon in the upper right corner of the video box confirms its activation.

To activate this feature, participants with Full HD (or better) webcams can accept a prompt that appears on the join screen.

Settings for sending and receiving high-quality video can be adjusted under Settings > Video on the web, with automatic quality adjustments based on network bandwidth.

High-quality video is viewable when the enabled user is pinned or if the viewer's screen is large enough to support higher resolution.
