What’s New 🚨
Around by Miro Labs
We’ve integrated Miro’s visual collaboration platform into Around by Miro Labs (Around), which means your team can now gather around a Miro board and access Miro’s powerful collaboration features directly inside Around. Collaborate more effectively with instant access to new or existing boards and reduce fatigue by no longer having to toggle between apps. Your team can start ideating from a blank Miro canvas, or by using one of their pre-made templates designed to help teams tackle any task. The last Miro board used in a room is immediately available the next time you join, so your team can easily pick up where they left off.
Where to find it: Select Miro mode at the top of the meet window during a meeting
Note: To use this feature, you must connect a new or existing Miro account in Your Account. Meeting attendees on a mobile device can view an active Miro board but cannot create or edit boards or their content at this time.

To help your team save time and collaborate more efficiently, you can choose from a variety of ready-made meeting templates that support proven workflows. Pick a default meeting experience (ranging from brainstorms to retrospectives) and select from over 300 Miro templates that best match your needs. Around also stores all notes and Miro boards once the session ends, meaning teams can easily pick up where they left off.
Where to find it: From the Lobby, click to add a New room card

Standup Meeting Template
Standups are one of the most popular types of meetings held in Around. As part of our new meeting templates feature, we've combined several of Around’s features into a seamless experience that encourages more productive and efficient standups, including:
Whenever a person joins a meeting, their name is automatically added to the room's Notes, along with text which prompts them to write out a quick update
You can set a timer to help ensure the meeting stays on track and doesn’t run over
Once the Standup has concluded, Notes can be stored in the room or sent to all meeting participants so there is always a record of what was discussed. Note: this can be configured in the room’s setting
Where to find it: Add a new room using the Standups meeting template
We’ve integrated a ton of your feedback into our latest update to our Lobby! We've greatly reduced the size of the Lobby, simplifying the UI while making it easier to create new meeting rooms.
Quality and Performance Updates 🌟
- Image Sharing has moved: To make room for Miro Mode without adding another button to the meet window interface, we’ve moved Image Sharing to the Magic Menu. To use, click the 3 dots in the top right corner of the meet window and select
Share Image or File with others. Note: For an even quicker way to share, simply drag and drop an image or file onto the Around meet window.
- Schedule meetings in Google Calendar from Around: Quickly schedule a meeting with your team in Google Calendar using one of your existing rooms. Simply hover over the room card in your Lobby and click on the calendar icon. All room members are added as meeting guests automatically with no copy / paste required.
- Improved audio quality for all participants actively using Echo Prevention
