Chromebox for meeting is a very good platform to connect with people through video calling. We use Google Hangouts with Chromebox to schedule the meeting and do the video calling. Managing these Chromeboxes sometimes becomes a hectic work. Admins have to go to every Chromebox rooms and check for the connection of the peripherals like camera, speaker, and their working conditions.
But Now Google has launched to track the Chromebox for meeting peripherals from admin console, and Now admins will not have to move to every meeting room to check manually
