Gmail app recently added Google Meet to its interface by default. The new Google Meet-Gmail integration has Mail on the left side and Meet on the right. Once users tap on the Meet option, they will be directed to a new page where they can either start a new meeting or join a new meeting.
However, some users find the placement of the new Google Meet app a hindrance as they do not use it often. Users can disable the feature if they do not use it often or if they feel that the Gmail app is too cluttered. Users have to follow these steps to disable Google Meet from the Gmail app.
--Open the Gmail app. Go to the three-lined icon in the top right corner to bring up a menu.
--Go to the Settings option from the scroll down menu.
--From the Settings menu, select your Gmail account name.
--Under the General section, there will be an option to enable or disable Google Meet.
--Use the turn off toggle to disable Google Meet or uncheck the box that reads "Show the Meet Tab for video calling."
Users having the Meet app can still use it separately as it will not become defunct. Whenever users make calls using the app, it will not redirect them to Gmail.
To add people to a video meeting by phone, users should follow these steps:
--Open Google Meet.
--Join a video meeting.
--Tap on the information icon.
--Click on share.
--Select mode of sharing link through text or email. Then, a link to the meeting and dial-in numbers will open in the text or email.
Google Meet is available for free on the web at meet.google.com and via mobile apps for iOS or Android. Users with a Gmail account can sign in at meet.google.com to activate their Meet account.
