    When will Explain Everything Whiteboard be available for MAC? Doesn't make sense for me to use this on my phone for teaching. Thanks!

    I'm understanding that Google MEET will no longer allow you to record your meetings/teaching after September. Has anyone else heard that? If this is true, I will probably use Screencastify. It's simple and automatically sends to your Google Drive. You can also send it to your Youtube account for easy linking.

    I find myself using Google meets a lot and I would definitely rate it five stars because it is so awesome and I really like it and I’m glad that you can screen share and I also am so glad that when you leave thatWeb browser or page you your video turns off and I am so glad for that there are a few things I would like for you to improve and that is probably more than 250 people because what if someone finds their self with 500 people and they can’t have all 250 people and two I think that there should be more options than just chatting pinning and all of that stuff because it may just be fun to do more stuff on there so that is my review and that is it thank you

    The app works very awesome and can't tell you about the video and sound, it is so much clear. As a student I am very much able to attend my class properly. I don't know why people say bad things about this app but it depends on your internet connections. But no bad feedback from me. Thanks a lot Google for creating these kind of apps. It is my pleasure to use Google and google apps. Thanks a lot

    As a high school student, I use google meet for 8 hours each day, so I know a lot about the app and about what it can and can’t be used for. I think there are many things about this app that set it above the other meet softwares such as zoom, yet there can be improvements. Take it from someone who spends more time on this app each day then he spends sleeping each night. Sometimes a teacher or student may be too loud or too quiet and you cannot change the volume because it will also change the volume of whatever other audio you are listening to, such as a Vodcast or music or a helpful video in general. This has happened to me quite frequently, at least once a day, and I have grown quite annoyed with this issue. One thing I’ve thought of is adding the ability to change the volume of individual people, as this would allow me to listen to a tutorial video on significant figures while at the same time enduring the pain of my teacher talking with her mic down her throat. Anything added to help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi. I am a student and have been using Google Meet for COVID-19 situation. It is a good app for classes and other stuff. I have been using this app for almost 6 months after my teachers decided to use Meet instead of Zoom. I spotted some problems during my time. But this new update fixed them all. And also made more issues...😒. But I expect that Google will detect them and fix them. I personally love this new update,but it made some more problems. 1. When I press the power button I automatically leave the meeting and everything just freezes up. 2. At the older version,I used to have the previous meeting links in the main menu. But here, there is nothing. 3.when I join a meeting the sound doesn’t come from the speaker of the iPhone. Instead it comes from the little speaker which is used for normal phone calls. 4. While using eardphones...(I have apple earphones) when I press the middle button of the earphones,I get out of the call. Instead of getting out of calls,the middle button should be used to turn on/off the microphone cuz that will be super handy. 5. In this update,the place where the name of all meeting members show I can't see whose camera is on or off. And I can't pin them by easily tapping at their ID 6. The option of chat should be aside the switch camera option. (It's the finest place of I can think of) 7. Add tile view. PLEASE!!! I hope Google sees this and makes the right changes to this useful app.

    First of all: I don't know why virtual backgrounds aren't available. Why are they not available?! Please bring them back!!!! Second: I have a suggestion. If not for the virtual backgrounds you can do something like on zoom where you can have like different meeting room templates each with a different setup and a different theme and different customizable meeting options. Like for example you could have a classroom template, and in there it could have always the raise hand feature, polls, breakout rooms, moderator has control over chat messages and students' microphones, or you could have like a hangout chat room, where there's lots of virtual backgrounds, a more interactive chat, and the option to change the screen layout. And those are just examples, the options are endless! Please make an update soon with the changes you've decided to make, and let me know! Thanks!

    𝗨𝗣𝗗𝗔𝗧𝗘 Restarting and clearing the cache won’t help, Google. This isn’t a bug either. It’s on all my devices, Mac to my phone (MacBook 12-inch, iPhone 12/XR, and iPad mini 5). On my computer it’ll ask “are you talking” because it’s continuously listening and I don’t know if this is a feature or something, but I don’t see who needs this. Just please remove this feature or whatever this is supposed to be, I’m really uncomfortable seeing the orange dot and my mic is off… and if you don’t know what I’m talking about, there is a new feature in iOS/iPadOS 14 and macOS 11 Big Sur, where a orange and green dot appears to let you know that your microphone or camera is in use. And you guys haven’t launched an update in 2 months, so don’t you think that pretty much everyone is on version 51.5.0? Oh and also, every time I use my phone for a meet, my screen turns black every time something is over my Proximity sensor, for example, a pencil or something, it screen turns black! 𝗣𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗢𝗨𝗦 what I mean meet in certain places. But when I want my microphone turned off, I want my microphone off. Why does it still show an orange dot when my mic is off? I was in a meeting and I got told “turn off your mic” and mic was already off! No, like seriously no joke. Please remove whatever feature this is supposed to be because why is the microphone still enabled in the background when you tabbed disable?

    I’m a high-school student doing everything virtually and sometimes i have to use the same device to use google meet and assignments. So if someone uses the chat box, I can’t see what they’re saying. I’m thinking that you can add like a notification box. Like how we get notifications for text messages and everything else. It would benefit me a lot if that was added so i don’t have to use a device to be on a google meet and another for assignments and etc. It would help if you add the notification bar to also add that we can chat back through that notification bar. I know with an iPhone you can do that, you can message someone back through the notification bar while watching something on netflix. I think this would benefit a lot of students like me on the long run. I hope you do this!!

    The new update is the best one. My friend once wanted to have 5 to 6 participants show up in the main screen just like you would see in a pc. But that was not the case before. Earlier only the speaker view was available i.e. the speaking participant will be shown in the main screen and below that other members would be shown. But now Google fulfilled our wish.

    Latest version is nice. But instead of clicking "others", it would be so nice and easy to just slide down to see all others - All participqnts in same size square box. And we should need to only just click on them to pin. Really wish to change that "others" Then this app will be really more easy and good and nice to be used. I use this app frequently and its good.

    Since the layout changed, the sound has improved . I am Satisfied with that but one thing that gets me off is that the presentation couldn't be heard. When the teacher tries to show a video or anything we can't hear anything usually. I wish the mobile version has some features of the web version as its more convinient. In play store it is said that " raise a hand " is there but I update everytime and couldn't get it. It will also be good if blur background was there .

    This application is useful but the reason why I gave 2 stars is that there are some issues:Pinning ourselves should be allowed. The small screen window that appears on the top right corner(landscape mode)should disappear when slided (it is really annoying).Raising hand feature should be available for Android also.A background changing option should appear for all devices.I'll rate 5 stars when all of these would be available.(tried not to be rude, hope you solve these issues soon😊)
  • A Useful Review that you should read Feb 1, 2021

    By 4everStarWarsfan
    I use google meets both on my phone and on my chromebook for school. On my chromebook, it’s great; the audio is a bit choppy on occasion, but other than that it’s pretty much perfect on my chromebook. On my phone however (I have an iPhoneXR if that has anything to do with it), the screen will just randomly go black while I’m in a google meet. It doesn’t do this when I’m on any other app alone, (when you’re in a google meet you can go onto other apps and still hear the audio from the google meet while you go on whatever other apps, just like FaceTime.) but when I’m in a google meet, my screen randomly goes black for about 4-6 seconds about 4 times every 30 seconds. I can still hear the audio, and the phone doesn’t turn off because when it comes back on again it’s on the same screen it was before and I don’t have to enter my password again. While the screen is black, even if I tap on, say, a keyboard, when the screen comes back on, it didn’t/doesn’t register that I pressed any buttons. This is quite frustrating, as I am currently in a google meet and it has taken me nearly thirty minutes to write this review.

    My reason for giving 2 stars is that I have some complaints about the app. There's no option of raising the hand. I can't find out how to change the theme of the app. The helps were of no use. All of a sudden after a few minutes, a saying 'Trying to speak? Switch on the microphone', is appearing Trying to make it more user friendly but is actually creating problems for me. I have a kind request to you to look into the matter. Once if the things are done, I promise to edit this review.

    This app is a DUMP! It doesn't even have raise hand option, lot of stuffs should be added. Teams has all the features in it, some of them like (i) turn off incoming video (ii) put me on hold (iii) dial pad (iv) meeting views, etc. Host has the option to DISBALE MIC & CAMERA of students and it also has group chat in it and we can easily send & post assignment in the app itself instead of downloading another like google classroom to send and post assignments! In short, Google meet is WASTE!!!!!!!

    It's the worst app , sometimes when i unmute my mic and speak something my voice doesn't come to another people and i can hear everybody's voice in delay and presentation is also very slow to update on Google meet, and video quality is the worst on this app, this problem is with my friends and teachers also , solve this problem otherwise i would be taking ny regular classes on another app
  • Don’t like the new layout Sep 15, 2020

    By Aaliyah Redd
    I love this app, it’s great for online school. But recently you guys have updated the layout for mobile, and now it looks terrible. You’ve also made working the app more difficult. Before, you could see yourself fully before joining, with the option to mute or turn your camera off, and now you’ve made the screen in which you view yourself before entering the call smaller. Now I can’t look at myself fully and adjust my appearance if need be, because I can barely see myself. Also, I now have to go through a series of steps just to pin a person, or look at the chat. And now when I’m in the chat, I can’t see the person I have pinned anymore, because the chat takes up the whole screen. Also when I accidentally leave the call, there is no longer an option to rejoin the meeting, which is very frustrating. Please fix this, I had no issue before, so I don’t know why you guys had to change it. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. You guys have completely went downhill with this layout.

    I've had a good connection with Google since ever, because your apps and your development were the best among the others. But, unfortunately, it seems that the money (that isn't enough) is a way more important than the happiness of the user. I had a problem with a meeting today and I had to create two other rooms in order to finish it. Literally, one hour? Are you kidding? We're in the middle of a pandemic, and we have other countries besides USA. Why charge from people who really enjoy the app
  • Not very stable and useable. Sep 18, 2020

    By Lps Hologram
    The meet sometimes crashes and the sound of the meet mutes and I’ve rejoined more than 5 times on the computer and it still does the same thing. There is no way of turning off notifications on Catherine chat like zoom. When I get a reminder, the google meet mutes on mobile devices. The mic on the computer is horrible since it is fuzzy. The whole meet lags when someone presents. It’s impossible to see the meeting while chatting on iPad and iPhone. The meet kicks you out for no reason and says there is an error. Sometimes classmates get kicked and come back clueless of what we are doing. You can’t do webinars either. The lack of settings on the camera and mic is sometimes annoying. When plugging headphones, the meeting mutes too. This is honestly unusable and recommend to teachers that you don’t use this app if you want your students and pupils to be able to feel like they are in the classroom. Thanks for listening. Please fix these!

    I was really content with this application in its earliest days but since last week I am having a very annoying issue with it. Despite having a very good internet connection and a high quality microphone, I am not able to talk in the meeting. My teachers and friends can't hear me at times and I have to rejoin the meeting. If this problem persists, I will be in a great trouble. I urge the google team to fix this bug promptly.

    By PotatoRobloxGod
    As a elementary student I use this app a lot for my meetings, yes work could be done but it’s really easy to use. There is a raise hand feature and even being able to change your background! The raise hand is my favorite as it means you don’t have to have your hand up for hours it feels and your teacher doesn’t even notice. Also, A lifesaver that it’s on iPhone as my computer died and I have a meet at 2:30! (It’s 2:22 right now while I am writing this. Anyways, I write actual truthful reviews and I just really love this app as it is easy to use and it doesn’t take someone from college to know how to use it.

    Google meet is a great app to communicate, me and my friend often use it to share our screens,which i think is an amazing feature that I wish they had on Houseparty but other than that I have a suggestion if you could do something like Houseparty where you can play games and add a background that does not show what is behind you (it comes in handy when you are having a meeting with a coworker or friend and don’t want them to see you messy room!).Once again great app just needs these improvements that I think would people and attract them!!

    I am enjoying Google meet with my class. Each student has an opportunity to talk and share what’s going on and answer questions that we are working on that day. There’s been very little problems. I am thankful for google meet to keep all our special needs students United. It gives them an outlet to see their fellow classmates when they cannot meet in person during this Covid 19 quarantine. It puts a smile on their faces and lets them know that they are not alone and they still have their friends from school.
  • I love meet May 15, 2021

    By Matt L. 1982
    It is nice and when you share your screen it has nice features. I hate the new icon it’s fishy and unappealing the camera has a hole in the center and it kind of scares me it looks like it is copying zoom and the size of the camera is too big the icon has no green in it. Meet is very cool and your meetings are safe from strangers. On an iPad do not use a web browser for this. On a computer use a browser. And do not rate this app a 1 star 2star 3star do 4 star or 5 star. I miss when it says you left the meeting. Btw thanks for the new tiled view.
  • Best source of communication in the Pandemic and Beyond Mar 1, 2021

    By yo mama bia
    There are so many great things to say about MEET, but the most important is that it is a secure way to meet and do instruction, speak to entire families at one time, and just have a small simple meeting to discuss future plans.. There is so much more I could say but that sums it up. If you have a platform that can do all that securely and safely, what else do you need. Connections during this pandemic have been made simple because of MEET and for that I am eternally grateful.
  • Google is listening to everything you’re saying. Mar 9, 2021

    By Monexant001267
    Apple allows us to see when your being recorded. The tiny circle on the upper right is yellow when your being recorded by audio and it is green when you’re being recorded by the camera. What I notice is every time I decide to mute myself the tiny yellow circle doesn’t come off. So even though that everyone in the meet is unable to hear you. Google is listening to everything that you’re are saying.

    First of all: I don't know why virtual backgrounds aren't available. Why are they not available?! Please bring them back!!!! Second: I have a suggestion. If not for the virtual backgrounds you can do something like on zoom where you can have like different meeting room templates each with a different setup and a different theme and different customizable meeting options. Like for example you could have a classroom template, and in there it could have always the raise hand feature, polls, breakout rooms, moderator has control over chat messages and students' microphones, or you could have like a hangout chat room, where there's lots of virtual backgrounds, a more interactive chat, and the option to change the screen layout. And those are just examples, the options are endless! Please make an update soon with the changes you've decided to make, and let me know! Thanks!
  • It’s good but could be better Nov 17, 2020

    I’m a high-school student doing everything virtually and sometimes i have to use the same device to use google meet and assignments. So if someone uses the chat box, I can’t see what they’re saying. I’m thinking that you can add like a notification box. Like how we get notifications for text messages and everything else. It would benefit me a lot if that was added so i don’t have to use a device to be on a google meet and another for assignments and etc. It would help if you add the notification bar to also add that we can chat back through that notification bar. I know with an iPhone you can do that, you can message someone back through the notification bar while watching something on netflix. I think this would benefit a lot of students like me on the long run. I hope you do this!!
  • It’s nice... some things need to be added though Apr 26, 2021

    By plumcay
    I use Google meets to hang out and call with some school friends, there’s some times when I wish a friend would mute, or I have to check up on how I sound in the middle of a call, or when I leave and my friends leave the call as well even though I wanted to come back. So #1 thing I wish was added was some sort of muting option for the meeting, what I’m saying is I can mute the meeting or a person. I have this one friend and for some reason he loves to leave his mic on, sometimes I wish I could just mute him so I could watch a video in peace. I wish there was a button on mobile for muting a person. Second thing I want is a “trouble shoot” (I believe it’s called) so when I’m in the middle of a meeting and I wanna check up on how I sound, I could do a quick trouble shoot and have no one else hear me. Last thing I would like is some sort of thing to be able to join the call later, even with no one else there to confirm your join. Sort of like a “come back later” button and you can just click it to join back in. That’s it, I hope one of these things happen because I’m sure they’d help me and a lot of people using meets.

    This app helped me a lot to do my classes but sometimes it automatically stops and shows an error occured. Because of this sometimes my meetings stops and i have to join it again . Please fix these problems. The second problem is that the voice was not clear. The video was blur sometimes. It can be some network issue. Otherwise it's a good app for doing meetings. 😉😉😉😊😊😊. So that's why i am giving it 4 stars
  • Great App but you should be able to mute to meet Dec 8, 2020

    By twetybus
    Google meets is a great app but you should be able to mute the meet. I know you can mute yourself but if you could mute the meet so you can’t hear what they’re saying. It would make it easier for students to watch videos without being distracted by the in person class. Like if someone would have to watch the video, but the teacher is talking, you would have to listen to the teacher and the video at the same time and it’s confusing. But if you were able to mute the meet then you could watch the video without the background noise and then when your done you can unmute it. Except for that fact it’s an amazing app and it’s really useful.
  • Updates are awsome, but are hard to get used. Oct 16, 2020

    By john william yotuber
    Meet is a good app to use for meetings. But theres a problem where the new updates are just soooooooooooo hard to get used to. Like for example, the latest update had changed some features of the app and supports night mode, but the problem is that if you are a teacher, and if you need to go and check the chat log, you have go back and forth( meaning go back to the screen and go back to the chat log and it goes on). Before you can open the chat log and then present the screen. But now, its so difficult that some schools has changed apps by going from meet to zoom. Please fix😾
  • Screen Share with Audio Thru iPad Dec 16, 2020

    By Jackson Poma
    It’d be awesome if y’all could make the audio available when screen sharing on an iPad. I understand it’s available on a computer, but I don’t have one, and I got this presentation I’m doing tmrw that I will have to screen share, and one of the parts of the presentation is Kanye West rapping his song “Flashing Lights”. Unfortunately, my audience on Google Meet won’t be able to hear the eloquence of Kanye’s voice, which is very unfortunate. So as I said earlier, if y’all could find a way to make audio available for screen sharing thru IOS devices (in this case, the iPad), that’d be fantastic cuz I’d no longer have to deal with this problem.
  • Could be better Dec 16, 2020

    By A User :D
    This app is perfect, I use it for school but my teachers recently started using polls and surveys and I cant vote for the surveys because I am on mobile. I really hate that and I this you should update the app for mobile users. I love this app and im serious! It just needs some updates. Im glad you added so that mobile users could change their background. Its useless kind of but if you added a feature that you could upload an image it would be awesome. It would really help teachers teach better. Thank you! Sincerely, Heaven. :)
  • Fix your privacy issues. Feb 19, 2021

    𝗨𝗣𝗗𝗔𝗧𝗘 Restarting and clearing the cache won’t help, Google. This isn’t a bug either. It’s on all my devices, Mac to my phone (MacBook 12-inch, iPhone 12/XR, and iPad mini 5). On my computer it’ll ask “are you talking” because it’s continuously listening and I don’t know if this is a feature or something, but I don’t see who needs this. Just please remove this feature or whatever this is supposed to be, I’m really uncomfortable seeing the orange dot and my mic is off… and if you don’t know what I’m talking about, there is a new feature in iOS/iPadOS 14 and macOS 11 Big Sur, where a orange and green dot appears to let you know that your microphone or camera is in use. And you guys haven’t launched an update in 2 months, so don’t you think that pretty much everyone is on version 51.5.0? Oh and also, every time I use my phone for a meet, my screen turns black every time something is over my Proximity sensor, for example, a pencil or something, it screen turns black! 𝗣𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗢𝗨𝗦 what I mean meet in certain places. But when I want my microphone turned off, I want my microphone off. Why does it still show an orange dot when my mic is off? I was in a meeting and I got told “turn off your mic” and mic was already off! No, like seriously no joke. Please remove whatever feature this is supposed to be because why is the microphone still enabled in the background when you tabbed disable?

    Latest version is nice. But instead of clicking "others", it would be so nice and easy to just slide down to see all others - All participqnts in same size square box. And we should need to only just click on them to pin. Really wish to change that "others" Then this app will be really more easy and good and nice to be used. I use this app frequently and its good.

    Since the layout changed, the sound has improved . I am Satisfied with that but one thing that gets me off is that the presentation couldn't be heard. When the teacher tries to show a video or anything we can't hear anything usually. I wish the mobile version has some features of the web version as its more convinient. In play store it is said that " raise a hand " is there but I update everytime and couldn't get it. It will also be good if blur background was there .
  • Layout and Chat Box Mar 17, 2021

    By bborco
    As a high school student, I use Google Meet for about 8 hours a day. When I use my chrome book, you are able to see everybody on your screen, however, when I use my Ipad or Iphone, you can only see about 4 people. It makes it a bit hard because since I take ASL, you don’t know who is signing or what is being signed. They should change it to where we can see everybody. Also, when I use the chat box it pops up in the middle of the screen. I think they should change the chat box to going to the side instead of the middle like the chrome book because I still need to see what my teachers and peers are saying. Hopefully, they are able to change it. Also, I’m glad they put the “activities” feature because every time my teachers put a poll up I was never able to vote.

    There seems to be a bug when using bluetooth earphones. The audio is heard fine through the bt headset, but Meet defaults to using the device's built in mic and not the mic on the bt headset. Yes, I made sure that Bluetooth is selected as the audio source via the icon in the upper right corner. Regular phone calls and other voice communication apps on my phone work as expected with the same bt headset. The iOS version of Meet doesn't have this bug.

    Overall this app is user-friendly and good, but I would like to suggest one thing that it will be good if the host or admin of the meeting can watch the Email IDs of all the participants on the screen, because sometimes some participants are there who enter the meeting with multiple profiles (but with single Email ID as it's attached with Google Calendar) to create disturbances and the host can only see the names but not the Email IDs. This update can act as a better proof for the host.

    By Nasfara Janna All in one
    The app is good to use for online classes..but why it is only 8 ( including myself ) at a time.showing only those who on the mic recently..what about others? In other app we can see all of the participants at a time by swiping the screen..hope you will include this feature soon . And the other thing I cannot change the background.. I have a good phone, but still it's not working on my phone
  • Good, but can be better with... Oct 2, 2020

    By SpiciestWinner
    This app is extremely useful especially with the times we’re in and how schools use them. I have the app on my iPad Pro, and apple has a feature where you can have to apps open at once to multitask. However, when I do this my camera turns off and says it can only be on when it has the whole screen... which makes no sense. Then when I leave the app as a whole, without multitasking, it also turns the camera off and doesn’t bring it with me to the home menu or anything. I believe these are small things that can bring this app to be something capable of competing with zoom or those other big known platforms when it comes to convenience.
  • Hits and Misses Apr 21, 2021

    By A Very Concerned Idiot
    Google Meets is a useful app for communication, but the app hits and misses in its ability to be reliable. Lately, I have been experiencing glitches on mobile in which the video of my instructors and their presentations are not available—only their profile photo is present on the screen. While audio is available, video is not, making my work difficult on mobile. The problem on mobile, however, mysteriously does not exist on PC in which I get both audio and video. While the unreliability of mobile Google Meets is annoying, PC Google Meets is working fine. My question (to a developer if they happen to be reading this) is why does this happen, or how can I fix it?
  • So it is useful but really bad with glitching out Jan 9, 2021

    By Po$tMoRtEm
    So we have been using this app for a long time this year and it hasn’t been the best considering about 7 people are gone every class of 20 people (20 so we don’t just have a lag fest) especially on mobile I think it has more capacity on computer on a computer you can buy an add on to have 500 people in at once now I always misclick the tiny buttons on my phone and I’m just raising my hand all the time (and the worst feature for me is whenever something hovers over the microphone on the top of my phone the screen goes black but when I move my hand it goes back after like 10 seconds, like what???)
  • Jul 29, 2021

    By Hermione Jean Granger
    This application is useful but the reason why I gave 2 stars is that there are some issues:Pinning ourselves should be allowed. The small screen window that appears on the top right corner(landscape mode)should disappear when slided (it is really annoying).Raising hand feature should be available for Android also.A background changing option should appear for all devices.I'll rate 5 stars when all of these would be available.(tried not to be rude, hope you solve these issues soon😊)
  • Jul 15, 2021

    By SATTWIKI KUNDU
    My reason for giving 2 stars is that I have some complaints about the app. There's no option of raising the hand. I can't find out how to change the theme of the app. The helps were of no use. All of a sudden after a few minutes, a saying 'Trying to speak? Switch on the microphone', is appearing Trying to make it more user friendly but is actually creating problems for me. I have a kind request to you to look into the matter. Once if the things are done, I promise to edit this review.
  • Not very stable and useable. Sep 18, 2020

    By Lps Hologram
    The meet sometimes crashes and the sound of the meet mutes and I’ve rejoined more than 5 times on the computer and it still does the same thing. There is no way of turning off notifications on Catherine chat like zoom. When I get a reminder, the google meet mutes on mobile devices. The mic on the computer is horrible since it is fuzzy. The whole meet lags when someone presents. It’s impossible to see the meeting while chatting on iPad and iPhone. The meet kicks you out for no reason and says there is an error. Sometimes classmates get kicked and come back clueless of what we are doing. You can’t do webinars either. The lack of settings on the camera and mic is sometimes annoying. When plugging headphones, the meeting mutes too. This is honestly unusable and recommend to teachers that you don’t use this app if you want your students and pupils to be able to feel like they are in the classroom. Thanks for listening. Please fix these!

    I was really content with this application in its earliest days but since last week I am having a very annoying issue with it. Despite having a very good internet connection and a high quality microphone, I am not able to talk in the meeting. My teachers and friends can't hear me at times and I have to rejoin the meeting. If this problem persists, I will be in a great trouble. I urge the google team to fix this bug promptly.
  • Zoom is better Oct 13, 2020

    By Clumzybabe
    When I found out I was upset but I just tried meet because it was a google app I loved all the google apps I used... except this one. The first time I used it was math class that failed horribly, my camera was glitching on and off and I was mute. I found out how to use it the next day with help from my sis. So I was doing some work and the teacher was like make sure camera is on. So I was like ok and me and my teacher was the only one who’s camera was on but that wasn’t the problem THEIR CAMERA WAS ON I just couldn’t see it until they speak. Which was very annoying especially if someone was participating and I couldn’t see the teacher. Also I couldn’t use tiles like I can with zoom unless I’m on a computer. This app was very disappointing I liked zoom better. My sis uses zoom. This app does not deserve 4.2, 3.2 at the best I don’t understand why the DOE decided to use meet. I don’t recommend this app unless it is mandatory for school

    Indeed, the begining version was very good enough, compare to the present version. Because; in the new version you did remove the option of *back to meeting* it irritates alot !! If my internet connection is bit poor, then i Will be thrown away from the meeting all of a sudden! And i have to enter the password everytime after getting out of the meeting, as there's no option of back to meet...! And also try to give some standard vision to the screen as well. Pls do fix these issues asap!

    I miss the feature to pin yourself in mobile. In mobiles with small screen, 5 people can be shown at a time. Among them, one person cannot be pinned due to a sign that shows how many people are present(the sign covers the three dots present in every person's icon ). Also, I can't minimize the screen as when I choose the minimize button, the screen becomes blank grey. I then have to rejoin by using the red bar in the notification bar. But if I minimize again, same thing happens twice. Again&again
  • Good if used for personal calls, terrible for schools. Sep 9, 2020

    By Djz3bra
    It does it’s job when used for personal calls, like friend to friend, and can handle a good amount of people in calls. The problem is that schools are trying to use this app as an alternative to Zoom, when they have just as easy if not even easier access to Zoom than this app, and Zoom is much more stable. It seems every class period I have with the teacher that uses this app, it crashes at least once, and we all have to scramble to get back into the call and resume, not once have I had yet to have this problem with Zoom. Meet simply can’t handle a classroom amount of people. If you’re a teacher or anyone in the education board, STICK TO ZOOM. It simply saves everyone time and effort. Other than that, decent app to use for personal purposes.
  • Extremely frustrating issues with sound Jul 26, 2021

    By RedGreen Health
    Today, Google forced me to download Google Meet to my iPhone (3 mo old) from my Safari browser, for a Monday meeting I’ve been taking there for six months. A-This cluster f* of rerouting the url and an unexpected download task made me late. B-The sound is at half volume with no obvious way to fix from either in-app settings or iPhone native. C-The app would not recognize my existing Bluetooth Bose speaker that I even use for some calls. D-No effective notification of this change. My first clue was the massive info page that popped up in Safari. Did you really expect me to READ it as I’m trying to log into a meeting? How about a first para prompt of “click here to download Meet.” What the h*ll are you guys doing over there? Did you even have a usability team working on this project? Think you’re exempt from alpha testing because you’re the great monolith? What an abysmal failure. If this was our software team, there would be serious consequences. At the very least, take a clue from Microsoft; at a minimum, they have the “eat your own dog food” policy before a release.
  • Layout harder to use Sep 21, 2020

    By nathan_lobdell
    I enjoy this app as I use it for school, but the new app update changes the layout in a more difficult way, instead of easily being able to click and see the class on each person there’s a few more extra steps to do this, it is also annoying how there is still no grid view option on the iPad. When I saw this update I was excited as I thought maybe they added this feature, but now I regret updating, I could see people more easily with the previous update, and it seems with this update there is a lot of useless space. Can’t wait to go back to in person school so I don’t have to use this :/

  • A Useful Review that you should read Feb 1, 2021

    By 4everStarWarsfan
    I use google meets both on my phone and on my chromebook for school. On my chromebook, it’s great; the audio is a bit choppy on occasion, but other than that it’s pretty much perfect on my chromebook. On my phone however (I have an iPhoneXR if that has anything to do with it), the screen will just randomly go black while I’m in a google meet. It doesn’t do this when I’m on any other app alone, (when you’re in a google meet you can go onto other apps and still hear the audio from the google meet while you go on whatever other apps, just like FaceTime.) but when I’m in a google meet, my screen randomly goes black for about 4-6 seconds about 4 times every 30 seconds. I can still hear the audio, and the phone doesn’t turn off because when it comes back on again it’s on the same screen it was before and I don’t have to enter my password again. While the screen is black, even if I tap on, say, a keyboard, when the screen comes back on, it didn’t/doesn’t register that I pressed any buttons. This is quite frustrating, as I am currently in a google meet and it has taken me nearly thirty minutes to write this review.

    This app is a DUMP! It doesn't even have raise hand option, lot of stuffs should be added. Teams has all the features in it, some of them like (i) turn off incoming video (ii) put me on hold (iii) dial pad (iv) meeting views, etc. Host has the option to DISBALE MIC & CAMERA of students and it also has group chat in it and we can easily send & post assignment in the app itself instead of downloading another like google classroom to send and post assignments! In short, Google meet is WASTE!!!!!!!

    It's the worst app , sometimes when i unmute my mic and speak something my voice doesn't come to another people and i can hear everybody's voice in delay and presentation is also very slow to update on Google meet, and video quality is the worst on this app, this problem is with my friends and teachers also , solve this problem otherwise i would be taking ny regular classes on another app
  • Don’t like the new layout Sep 15, 2020

    By Aaliyah Redd
    I love this app, it’s great for online school. But recently you guys have updated the layout for mobile, and now it looks terrible. You’ve also made working the app more difficult. Before, you could see yourself fully before joining, with the option to mute or turn your camera off, and now you’ve made the screen in which you view yourself before entering the call smaller. Now I can’t look at myself fully and adjust my appearance if need be, because I can barely see myself. Also, I now have to go through a series of steps just to pin a person, or look at the chat. And now when I’m in the chat, I can’t see the person I have pinned anymore, because the chat takes up the whole screen. Also when I accidentally leave the call, there is no longer an option to rejoin the meeting, which is very frustrating. Please fix this, I had no issue before, so I don’t know why you guys had to change it. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. You guys have completely went downhill with this layout.

    I've had a good connection with Google since ever, because your apps and your development were the best among the others. But, unfortunately, it seems that the money (that isn't enough) is a way more important than the happiness of the user. I had a problem with a meeting today and I had to create two other rooms in order to finish it. Literally, one hour? Are you kidding? We're in the middle of a pandemic, and we have other countries besides USA. Why charge from people who really enjoy the app
  • New update = UNABLE TO BROADCAST in SPLIT SCREEN Nov 12, 2020

    By nkveeokay
    THIS IS SO ANNOYING. PLUS I hate that I cannot monitor the chat box directly from the meet and I now have to navigate to it by clicking “In call messages.” Before the update, I was easily able to broadcast while in split screen mode which is perfect for teaching in the virtual classroom. But now, the broadcast gets interrupted whenever I try to enable split screen mode. This concern was also brought up in Meet support in this comment by R. Souza which got upvoted 28 times: “ Since the last iPadOS update 14.0.1, I am not allowed to split screen and show 2 apps at same time while broadcasting on Google Meet. It interrupts the screen broadcasting / recording and says that multitasking is resizing the app's windows. I teach art and drawing classes online through Meet and I used show the presentation and draw with Procreate at same time. It was very handful, and now I can only show one app at a time. “ Additionally, the chat box was a part of the old default screen, but now I need to navigate to it by clicking “In call messages” and it has become very challenging to actively monitor the chat box during my live lessons. I absolutely love all of the features of Google Meet, but if you could update the IPad version to include broadcasting while in split screen, and/or include a default view that seamlessly includes the in call messages, I would give this app 5 stars.

    Every update since (and including) making this a separate app from hangouts has made this relatively simple chat program worse. It worked great when it was all in hangouts, but now it is constantly struggling to stay connected while timing out the meeting to entice someone to now pay money to use a worse version of every other chat program out there. Swing and a miss, Google. The only thing this program had going for it was being free.
  • Way worse than the site Dec 1, 2020

    By Cheer4Lili
    I recently switched from a laptop to an iPad for school and I am really disappointed with this app. Online, features such as polling, q&a, etc. are available, while on mobile there is no mention of these. What should a student do if a teacher expects them to respond using one of those features? Secondly, when the chat comes up it blocks the entire screen. There is no way to be able to ask questions while paying attention in class because, as I said earlier, the chat screen blocks everything. It would be better to have the chat on the side (For my purposes I wouldn’t mind it being permanently open, but I think it’s best to make it minimizable). Lastly, when I tried to submit this feedback the app crashed (this happened five times) so I had to resort to leaving a review and hoping the developers saw it. If they do, I hope that they change these things soon. Thank you!

    This app was so good a year ago But after the updates, right now we can't even see the top part of the presentations clearly because our profiles cover it! Thats the only thing that bothers many meet users not just me! I request You to please update this (so that the top part of the presentations,etc will not be covered from our profiles anymore ♡) MANY meet users have been complaining about this but still this main problem has not been solved!
