Is there a way to use Google Meetup with a MTR device?  I know Webex and Zoom is available but we recently had a Google Meetup customer that started a meeting and users ended up having to meet in their office.

The only way I know is that you bring a laptop to the room and connect that via the HDMI-cable or if it is a system with USB bypass you can connect that way.

I not heard about any native support coming either.

This seems correct, and a total pain. Having to use both the USB and HDMI inject! Hardly a solution for large corporations. This solution solely answers to really one thing; Teams and Teams Only seems like a horrible solution, IMO.  I love the idea of coming into the room for Teams. Works great but we as with any other organization, will always have those one offs with other third-party webinars that external clients/customers start up. 

 

I am also wondering if this will be added to the roadmap at some point.

IMO this is actually super easy to do. Just bring your laptop in and plug in the HDMI. Takes like 5 seconds.
I find Google Meetup to be really clunky and to have poor performance. I am not sure I would want that to get implemented over other features the developer team is working on.
For what it works, it seems like a fair tradeoff for me. We work with a lot of clients but 90% of our meetings end up being Teams.
My 2 cents...
