    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.

    1. Keep your day moving, no matter where you work! Meet on the go or in the office, wherever you are in the world
    2. One-click access to high-definition video meetings with up to 50 possible dial-in participants
    3. Integrates seamlessly with Google Calendar, creating an effortless way to connect and develop relationships with your people

    It's functional, but lacking features it's competitors have offered for some time. For example, you have a single, portrait-oriented layout. Does not support landscape, so the beautiful broad shot your phone's camera can take means nothing. Frankly, it strikes me as a lazy design choice. It works, so 3 stars.

    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!

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.
  • 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.

    I've started to encounter problems since February 2022. First, when I unmute I could not hear my voice and it would say "The mic is muted due to the size of the call", then next when I turn on my camera, seconds later it would close my camera, and lastly after a minute or so while staying in the meet, it would exit itself therefore making me repeatedly leave the meet. Why does this happen. I tried to troubleshoot, uninstall, even connect to the browser version via phone but its still the same.
  • I love it! Nov 30, 2020

    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.

    Meet works absolutely fine for me. The updates bring in new features which are amazing. I would like to suggest to make some improvements in the form of features available in desktops or laptops should also be made available in mobile phones since it has become the widely used device nowadays. Hope to see the improvement soon. Thanks

    I got a new Chromebook this year and it's laggy with the mic and the video, not to mention blur and bad lighting, (though I don't know if thats my house.) I've used this on other computers to, (though not for a while,) and it's sucked there to. That being said, it's not the device, the camera app, the sound app, it's Google meet instead. I like how you can change the backgrounds, and I'm no computer programer, but does it have to make that much of a difference? Google, what's your excuse?
  • 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.

    The app crashes on opening. After being opened, the app closes. I can't open the app, so please don't tell me to use the in app report feature. Furthermore, i tried almost everything possible. Reinstalling the app, clearing cache data, restarting my device, and even clearing all data but it simply doesn't work. Multiple other users have also reported this but the reply is just some kind of reply saying do this or that BUT IT DOESNT WORK. This is a problem that is needed to be fixed.

    Whenever I activate full screen view while in a meeting, my thumbnail is always eating up a good bit of the screen area, preventing me from viewing some parts of the screen. What makes it even worse is that the thumbnail can't be moved around. It's just in a fixed place. Work on that please because there is not way one can be in a meeting, especially one with the screen being shared, without activating full screen view.
  • 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 rely on this for my online classes, which I am now missing because it will no longer work. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times, cleared data/cache, nothing helps. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO THIS APP? FIX IT NOW PLEASE! YOU ARE SERIOUSLY AFFECTING PEOPLE’S LIVES! I thought it was just a glitch at first, Meet failed to connect to the call, but after reinstalling it won’t even open! Stop telling us to report through the app, if the app won't OPEN, there's no way to do that!

    It keeps crashing!! I've trued the so called "advice" to fix it on my first review and I said I'd change my rating if its fixed. But no. It still not fixed, now I can't attend my online classes! What even happened to the app!? It was fine before but now everytime I click on it, it loads for 3 seconds turns black then returns me to my homescreen! This is getting annoying! I've tried everything, every single possible thing ti fix this issue! Yet it still doesn't work!
  • 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

    It is functional and useful in this time of pandemic. It is data friendly compared to Zoom or Microsoft Teams. The problem is, sometimes the app will automatically closed and I can't control the media volume in my phone. Overall as a student, its a great tool for us to understand and to learn about our lesson virtually and I hope you add a casting feature directly into the app so that I can listen to my teacher with our TV just like im in a classroom and please add noise cancellation feature
  • Great app but I have suggestions! Aug 23, 2020

    By Review 1,952
    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!!
  • Thanks for meet Dec 9, 2021

    By kl7312
    I use meet to teach students in public school. I am teaching eight graders algebra. They come to me at 6:30 A.M. ,one hour before they leave for school. They come to me because they want to really learn math , telling me that they are not content with the pace of learning in their classes at school. It takes dedication to sacrifice sleep but they do it. I am thankful for the platform of google meet which allows me to do it. I also use meet to teach my grandson advanced placement chemistry, who lives 160 miles away, for the same reason mentioned above. Thank you for making it all possible.
  • Terrific automated speech recognition & closed captioning Jan 21, 2022

    By CloudyJudge
    I have really loved using Google Meet for video calls, in large part because I benefit greatly from its closed captioning. I used to use Skype, which also has ASR, but Skype’s captioning hadn’t been as accurate or well-punctuated, and it would also cover up the face of the person speaking. Google had designed the display of captioning much better. I can also use Google Meet on a variety of devices, including my iPad. That’s not the same for Zoom, which still doesn’t make its ASR fully visible on devices other than computers. One drawback: I wish that Google Meet had a much better way of notifying people by sound that a person has set up a Google Meet for them. Skype has Google Meet beat in this regard. I’m not sure that Google Meet will continue to be available for individual users, unfortunately. I sure hope that it will.

Thank you Doug for being so amazing at what you do and the inspiration you give me during and at the end of the session… I would recommend anyone to him. He is patient, genuine, good listenser, and just a down to earth guy that cares about his clients. Thank you again Doug. Can’t wait until we meet again..

    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.
  • Works... Just needs some more work and attention Sep 21, 2020

    By Afnan Kabir
    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.
  • Few things and please respond when you see this Feb 27, 2021

    By sparkleeverything100050
    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!

    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.
  • 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. :)
  • Great app.. but a suggestion to developers Sep 28, 2020

    By ChandanL
    Hey gmeet is a great app , I’ve been using it for all my classes and lectures . It’s secure and works pretty fine . Just a couple suggestion from my side to include in your next UPDATE - - enable an option to send photos or screenshots in the chat box of gmeet because in some of my classes I can’t verbally explain the question . So being able to send photos would really improve my experience . - show the history of my earlier meetings and meetings I’ve attended so if I ever get out of the meeting the app will remember the link at least for a short period of time . Also I don’t like the current layout much because the chat box is less accessible than the earlier versions, and I need to be able to open the chat box quickly because most of us don’t turn on our mics in class . Yeah , so I hope this reaches the developer and I get a response soon .
  • Good app but I have suggestions Sep 8, 2020

    By sanri0
    I have been using Google Meet on my Ipad since quarantine started. I use it for all of my classes, so it’s a pretty big part of my life. Anyways, I like this app enough, but I do have an issue. When I have two tabs/apps open on my Ipad, I can’t turn on the camera on my Google Meet. You can only have your camera on when the only app open is Google Meet. I think if you “fixed” this, you could make classes more efficient for students (my school prefers that we have our camera on.) Thank you 😊
  • Jan 12, 2022

    By Scott Walter
    It's functional, but lacking features it's competitors have offered for some time. For example, you have a single, portrait-oriented layout. Does not support landscape, so the beautiful broad shot your phone's camera can take means nothing. Frankly, it strikes me as a lazy design choice. It works, so 3 stars.
  • 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.
  • May 5, 2022

    By Membridge 13
    I've started to encounter problems since February 2022. First, when I unmute I could not hear my voice and it would say "The mic is muted due to the size of the call", then next when I turn on my camera, seconds later it would close my camera, and lastly after a minute or so while staying in the meet, it would exit itself therefore making me repeatedly leave the meet. Why does this happen. I tried to troubleshoot, uninstall, even connect to the browser version via phone but its still the same.
  • 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?
  • Great potential, bad new change Oct 6, 2020

    By Bounce33183
    I’ll start by saying I’m a teacher and required to use Meets by my educational institution. I do like it a lot because it’s quite easy to navigate. The one thing I’m not keen on is the new change on the iPad that takes the chat out of the main screen because as a teacher I am trying to both monitor the screens at the same time as the chat and now I am forced to only be able to see one or the other. That’s a big bummer and a major change to my ability to manage my online classroom environment. I wish it was an option to continue to have the chat be open on the side of the screens so I can see both. Thanks!
  • 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???)
  • I hate the fact that you need workspace for lots of stuff in meet Oct 24, 2021

    By mdbg g
    Google meet was the best app to call my friends until workspace was needed to do some stuff in meet. So recently my school district banned google chat and meet on my school account, so I moved on to use my personal account so I can talk to my friends. It turned out that you need google workspace to have longer calls and make people co hosts. My friends and I just want to be on a call without worrying about time limits. We also want to make each other co hosts to let people in or stuff, but we can’t. Other than that, I still use it but I don’t like the fact that you need workspace for lots of things.
  • Waiting Room Dec 10, 2020

    By iPodownerthathatesthisapp
    I think this app is very easy to navigate and is great for students doing distance learning, but I definitely think there should be a waiting room feature for classrooms. Every day I have to click the meet link many times in order to see when my teacher has joined the meet, which is when it allows you to enter the meeting. I feel as though a waiting room sort of feature would allow teachers to let the students into the meet once they join themselves instead of having to click the link/meet button several times hoping their teachers are there.
  • Update? Sep 18, 2020

    By BeyBee123
    Google meet is fine but since apple just got a new picture in picture feature for its devices can you try to incorporate that into google meet? And make more of the features that work on the computers at least work on an iPad? Like the poll feature and i would like to go off the google meet screen without it turning off my camera so i can get my work done and my teachers have problems when they don’t see me so i have to try and do my class work on my phone and it’s a lot. I’m sure you are aware of people using google meet for virtual school and it would make it a whole lot easier on everyone.
  • Apr 9, 2022

    By Mafabi Yusuf
    Whenever I activate full screen view while in a meeting, my thumbnail is always eating up a good bit of the screen area, preventing me from viewing some parts of the screen. What makes it even worse is that the thumbnail can't be moved around. It's just in a fixed place. Work on that please because there is not way one can be in a meeting, especially one with the screen being shared, without activating full screen view.
  • 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
  • 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.

  • An issue. Nov 13, 2021

    By Peachybagel
    Hello! I have used google meet for around a year or two now, and recently I have noticed a huge issue. I use this app using my iPad, and whenever I try to join a meeting, sometimes it just immediately kicks me out of the call. Other times, it lets me in for a few seconds / minutes, then I get removed shortly after. Sometimes, I could call for a while using this app, then mid - conversation I just get removed. This issue is repetitive and doesn’t seem to happen with any other people I know who use the app. I’m beginning to question if maybe it’s just my device or if Google Meet is just a certain way. Other than that, the app is great and easy to use, just the issue is really bothering me lately.
  • 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 :/
  • No video layout options Dec 18, 2020

    By :$3!!:&!/?
    The sound and video quality was better than some alternatives, however I really dislike the video layout and lack of customization. On my tablet only one large video screen is viewable, either the current speaker (making it jump between cameras so much I might have a stroke) or one pinned person. Everyone else is a teeny tiny thumbnail. I would like to customize the video tiles whether to make everyone an equal size or make a handful of speakers larger than others. Until there are more video layout options I’d rather use Meet through my web browser where all videos are tiled equally or perhaps a competitor’s platform.
  • Better on other platforms, not great for iPad Dec 13, 2020

    By roadtrip08
    I really think this app has improved recently, but the iPad experience is a bit frustrating. There’s no option for a gallery/grid-view of meeting participants, only the full window of the active speaker with TINY thumbnails of everyone else. On desktop platforms the gallery view is possible, so it really needs to be an option here. We should all get an equal experience. It’s necessary because in some meetings it’s important to be able to see everyone’s reactions at the same time, not just the last person to speak. Video and audio quality are decent, but the interface needs serious work.
  • Needs Improvement May 21, 2021

    By let teens be teens
    It is developed well on the laptop, but on the phone application Google Meet can be a nightmare. Often my phone has glitched out and turned black screen when switching between apps while in a meeting and I am unable to use my phone for anywhere from five seconds to three minutes. This becomes an issue during class, especially when the app you’re trying to switch to is a class activity. This is the only app that this happens with for me, so I’m hoping it’s just a bug but it’s been prevalent for the entire year span that my school has been using Google Meet.
  • Needs lots more please! Sep 8, 2020

    By Evananderson517
    It’s a good app, but it really needs some work. I’m a student and some of these issue are really frustrating. - Tile mode on iPad. That’s a no brainer. - On large calls (15 ish or more), my peer’s video feeds don’t come up until I pin them. I can only see the person talking unless I pin someone else I want to see, otherwise their feed is just their profile photo. - Glitches and camera functionality turns off when multitasking on iPad. This makes it really hard to take notes or do research at the same time. - Video, audio, and presentation quality can all be significantly improved.

    I got a new Chromebook this year and it's laggy with the mic and the video, not to mention blur and bad lighting, (though I don't know if thats my house.) I've used this on other computers to, (though not for a while,) and it's sucked there to. That being said, it's not the device, the camera app, the sound app, it's Google meet instead. I like how you can change the backgrounds, and I'm no computer programer, but does it have to make that much of a difference? Google, what's your excuse?
  • 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.

Reinstalling the app, clearing cache data, restarting my device, and even clearing all data but it simply doesn't work. Multiple other users have also reported this but the reply is just some kind of reply saying do this or that BUT IT DOESNT WORK. This is a problem that is needed to be fixed.
  • 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.

  • 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.
