It’s been a long time since Google has presented its “.new” domain shortcuts, which allow you to quickly open new documents or slideshows by typing, and in your address bar. Now anyone can make a Google Meet call with the convenient shortcut.

The shortcut takes you directly to the “Meeting Ready” screen, where you can quickly organize a call or join a scheduled meeting. If you have multiple Gmail accounts, the shortcut will take you to your “main” account. You can choose another account by by adding the link with a / 1 or a / 2 (this tip can get complicated if you have a shipment of Google accounts).

Google rarely talks about its “.new” domain shortcuts, but they are worth remembering (or bookmarking). If you’re interested, Google has a fairly comprehensive list of “.new” shortcuts on his blog. Some great features, like for Google Calendar and for Bitly, could help streamline your workflow.
