Google Meet now lets you bulk admit people to calls, getting things going fast

Google Meet's utility in this work-from-home era can't be overstated, especially for G Suite and Google Workspace users, but the knock system for allowing folks inside your meeting can be a hiccup to the otherwise smooth experience. Having to manually approve or deny entry is easy if it's just one or two people, but with a big group, it can become tedious. But Google is adding the ability to blanket accept all pending knocks for bulk admittance.
