Tasha McFairyMuffin - Good but needs improvements
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.
Afnan Kabir - Works... Just needs some more work and attention
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.
john william yotuber - Updates are awsome, but are hard to get used.
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😾
Aaliyah Redd - Don’t like the new layout
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.
Lps Hologram - Not very stable and useable.
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!
Clumzybabe - Zoom is better
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
Jasukest - PLEASE BRING BACK OLD UI !!!!!!!
SCREAMING and SHOUTING - please bring back old UI!
NEW UI is terrible:
- InVideo Calls it is not possible to see In-call messages window without obstructing video/shared screen content!
- mute/hang buttons re-arranged and made it worse!
-InVideo calls you can not see participant list without obstructing video/shared content!!
- no possibility to arrange different layouts to see either one main participant/shared screen or mosaic with multiple faces.
This is similar r$$ish layout like the one that comes from Mail App, when call is initiated from Mail App.
So it was tested on the Mail app but instead of recognising shortcomings and making improvement it was rolled-out to sand-alone app - WORST decision ever!
NOT user friendly at all.
Developers decided to use some “out of the box” functionality which is not helpful but went ahead anyway. For example - in-chat messages open new window that obstructs everything, instead of developing a side-partial window that allows to see messages alongside the Video/Shared screens.
I’m advanced user with 30+ years of IT experience. Mostly working in software project environments with high level of collaboration where conferencing is essential. I know what I’m writing and understand the mistakes that have been made implementing new LESS-user-friendly layout compared to previous one.
Liv forever! - AN ANGRY STUDENT WHO HATES THIS APP!!!!!😡😡😡
This app is probably the worst app on planet earth. You do NOT have the tile grid or the icons. It is very glitchy and crashes during my school calls at least 3 times a call. I have trouble unmuting and muting myself. 99% of the time my camera doesn’t work even if I turn it on and off AND ON AGAIN!!!! Every time when I enter a call I have no audio. My teacher and classmates ALWAYS GET RANDOMLY KICKED OFF THE CALL!!!! The picture is always blurry and SOMETIMES is BLACK. I can only see 3 people. The chat only lets you type 10 sentences (witch isn’t that big off a deal but still) It crashes after to many people come on the call. THE CODES AND LINKS DON’T WORK MOST OF THE TIME!!!!!!! To NOT get all these problems my parents had to BUY me a chrome book cause not A SINGLE ONE of these bugs are on a chrome book, lab top, or computer. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS APP if there was a 0 star that’s what I would rate it. Btw zoom is WAYYY BETTER THAN THIS APP!!!!!!!!
Djz3bra - Good if used for personal calls, terrible for schools.
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.
SpiciestWinner - Good, but can be better with...
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.
Miena4567 - Awesome! But there’s an issue
So I love this app honestly it’s the best calling app other then regular calling, but I just got a new update today on my phone when I came back on google meet. I went on a call with my friend and when we turn off our phones we instantly leave the call, when before the update when we would turn off our phones we would still be on the call. So creator if you see this comment please make it to where we can turn off our device without getting kicked out of the meet. Other than that this app is great!
Review 1,952 - Great app but I have suggestions!
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!!
MissLoneStar - Just bad😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Ok do NOT recommend this app for school it kicks me out of my classes and don’t let me back in I also saw that it caused a lot of internet problems and a lot of WiFi problems too I had to buy another laptop for school I’ve only had my old one for two weeks ! It always put viruses in my chrome book and my laptop I have now do not recommend this app crashes to much audio quality is HORRIBLE plus video quality is TRASH i have a clear camera and on the meet is looks like I have a pixilated filter on but I DON’t this app doesn’t work properly because I used to be on zoom and on zoom I had amazing quality for everything!! Zoom is wayyyyy better because it never crashed it never did anything wrong so please if you’re still reading this please rate this app one star
robertjackcook - Nightmare redesign
Okay so like.. why redesign the app? It looked like the web version before. It was redesigned with little to no functionality improvements. Now I can’t see the chat while seeing video at the same time on iPad, which makes it useless for work as a teacher. Also, this app is now for some reason also built into Gmail? And there’s no setting anywhere to get things to open in this standalone app, which is also awful because I like to use my email while video chatting so I can privately email students if I need to.
Also, what’s with the inability to have the camera on while multitasking? Is that just an iOS thing or is that a you thing? If it’s a you thing, fix it. I literally bought my iPad for my job and still have to use my laptop because Meet on iPad is so bad.
Bounce33183 - Great potential, bad new change
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.
Bblkt546 - United
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.
BeyBee123 - Update?
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.
ChandanL - Great app.. but a suggestion to developers
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 .
nathan_lobdell - Layout harder to use
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 :/
um...its okay - Really good but..
So i was playing pretend with my little sister, so we downloaded this app and thought it would be funny to play that i am the teacher in online school! So i created a meeting, she joined, and then we started playing. Now...here is the thing; When i try to share my screen, it works, but when i go to a video that i wanted to share and play it, i go back to the meeting to check on my little sister, who is the student, and the shared screen was duplicating on my screen. Even the sound was duplicating! Overall great app and i hope you can fix this. Thank you for reading!
sanri0 - Good app but I have suggestions
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 😊
Arianasanchez29 - suggestionsss!!
So some teachers make us show our faces on camera. But some people don’t want to show other kids. It would be SO GREAT if you could make it an option of just showing your face to people you select. that way if we don’t think we look our best than we can just show the teacher and friends and not everyone in class. same with the audio^^
Also an option to have a private chat with someone, i would want to ask teachers questions privately and not in-front of everyone.
K3nzie!!!🤩🤩🤩 - It’s pretty good 😀
I am a student who either needs to use zoom or google meets because of COVID-19 situation but I find that google meets does not always work for me it can sometimes lag or it won’t let me in and I’m pretty sure that that happens with other students in my class also sometimes we can’t hear each other so when I speak sometimes my classmates can hear me again I am unsure if this is just because of my device or because well I am not sure but other than that it is a pretty good app!
Penguin The Player - I miss the old meet layout/features
Meet updated a few months ago, which completely changed the layout and look of the app, but it removed some of the best things of it, such as chat that doesn’t block the whole screen (like now) and rejoining meeting. I frequently miss the camera button and log out, but instead of getting a message at the bottom to rejoin, I have to enter in the code/click the link again. And pinning people who aren’t on the side is a nightmare, so many steps. And the new logo is odd, but the app works fine I guess so it is 3 stars.
Pianomanstan - Good! New update though
I’d like to say the update on google meets is Very modern I like it but some things I don’t like are 1. the buttons to leave and Turn camera off and on
When it’s Ready to Unmute I always leave on accident..the buttons are quite Small
2. This is a Adding Idea, Maybe , like zoom can you guys over at the google meet tech area Could you guys add emojis? Like how on zoom, they have 👍 👎 😃 Ect. my class Would enjoy it a lot! Thank you for reading Stay safe
kittikatgurl🐈 - Very Helpful
Considering the situation that most students are in, this app is extremely helpful. My school laptop is a piece of crap, so being able to use my phone for Google Meets at class time, is veryyyy convenient and helpful. I have had no issues considering Wifi, glitching, or sound cutting out. I can see all of the chats, and I have had no problems with seeing my teacher’s and peer’s presentations. Thank you Google for providing this wonderful app!!!
MaddyDuff108 - Extensions not being available on mobile
i’m a high school student currently using google meets for online classes during the pandemic. we use google meets and it’s been great so far, not many bugs or issues that i’ve personally come across. however i give this 3 stars because i use an ipad for my classes and when teachers want to use google meets extensions like breakout rooms and reactions, i cannot participate and i get in trouble. zoom has all these things and it works on mobile. if the app had extensions available to add onto the app freely i would give 5 stars
jladams97 - Scheduled meetings now open in the Gmail app, not the Google Meet app
The Google Meet app itself works great.
But here’s my beef: I get that Google wants to make Meet meetings available in Gmail, that makes sense, I mean, everyone has Gmail. But I like having the 2 apps separate. But now if you go into Google Calendar and click a Google Meet link, it opens in the Gmail app, not the Google Meet app. I prefer an app that’s dedicated to meetings (which is to say, the Google Meet app), I don’t want to use a single app for both email and meetings.
eddy487 - Turning device screen off will end the call now
On iOS before I was able to stay in the call and listen while I turned off my phone screen (like while being on commute for example). I can’t do that now, the meet is ended immediately and I can’t properly commute while making sure I keep my phone screen on and also not touch the screen when I don’t mean to touch it. This also affects battery life since I have to keep my phone screen on, opposed to being able to turn screen off and place the phone in my pocket.
CriticAtHeart - Annoyed customer
First, this is a terrible app. Ever wondered how google makes money? They get your search questions and sell them. Same as your personal data, and house and voice!!!!!!!! Not cool. Next, it is so bad on the ipad!!! Like, really? Can you do one good thing to help people google? I have to click the three dots and i didn’t have to do that before!! i know it sounds like I’m a Karen, but they changed it for no reason!! I cant even have the background thing and i cant see my teacher when chat is turned on! If your a teacher reading this, USE ZOOM! Like seriously, his app is trash plz give it a one star if you agree -_- also ty for reading :) plz sub to the krew (star Funneh)
Aleman1322 - Horrible UX Update Is Harder to Use
The latest version (45) changed the user interface and made this app worse in almost every way. You used to be able to see the chat while watching the screen & participants. Now switching to chat takes over the entire screen. The VIDEO is the point! Why is it now hidden from view?!
Getting to meeting info, participant lists and chat used to be a single tap. Now they’re at least two taps. You cannot see who else is dialed in with video anymore - it’s just a bunch of names with no video thumbnails; pinning someone’s video takes 3 taps instead of 1. The mute & video buttons are now side by side instead of on opposite sides of the end-call button, making it easier to confuse them.
Accidentally pressing the phone’s power button hangs up the entire call instead of just dimming the screen.
This is a massive leap backwards in terms of usability and ease of navigation. Google’s been struggling with their video & chat apps, and this is not helping the cause.
miss.K.918 - Good app, just needs some adjustments for IOS
The app is actually decent for virtual learning; I think the only downside for me on my iPad is that you can’t view everyone in a tile grid format compared to Zoom. It only allows you to see one person (mainly the teacher) on the big screen, and probably one or two of your classmates on the side who are in tiny boxes, so you can BARELY see them. I wish the format is similar to Zoom where we can have the option to view all of the people in a grid view or just see the presenter.
ii.val.ii - Needs improvement
For school i use an iPad because i don’t have a laptop. I have been on the website to see the differences. On the website you can change the layout and see everyone in the call, meanwhile on the app u can only see one person u pin and at last 5 people on the side. also on laptops i have heard that there is background blur. I feel like on the app we need the same cool features that laptops have. Please take this for the next update. THank you.
Evananderson517 - Needs lots more please!
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.
The Como Genius - Pretty good, just needs a few things
I like the Meet app. But I'd especially like to have tiled view support (especially on iPad) like on the web in order for my kid to see classmates all at once (ditto me for my business meetings). I'd also like to have the ability to have my video stream at a landscape ratio so it looks like the other web-based participants irrespective of device orientation. Finally, a means to have chat and tiled video showing up all in one screen cleanly would be excellent.
SoCalN8 - Option to change participant name order
I am a high school teacher using Meet for lessons. I have to take roll everyday. The list of students in Meet is alphabetically by first name. The list of students in my SIS is alphabetically by last name. This creates an inefficient toggle of my Meet list where I am scrolling up and down to find my students as I take roll. This could be alleviated with an option in Meet to organize by first or last name. Thanks for helping us teachers out.
bherndo852964 - Help a depressed girl out
I love this so much I first used it to talk to my boyfriend and this was the only thing available to talk on at the time so since then I now use it to talk to my exes little brother to hang out and sometimes I use it to talk to my friends but my parents are rely strict they put screen times on everything and now this?!i have a apple phone so if y’all have a mode to turn off the possibility of screen time on this app that would be great!
AlwaysHungry🍕🍕 - Five Stars!!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
It's a really great app. I used it a lot for school and even used it during summer school!!! It really helped, it had great features and although it took a while for me to figure out how it worked😂
Definitely helped during these strange times of uncertainty.
The only think that I would suggest is that they added a beauty enhancer filter similar to the one on zoom!!!! I would definitely love that!!!:)
tharun chiluveru - Drawbacks compare to previous version
Hi , Sorry to say.
This version has many issues.
Some of it I can say.
Iam using iPhone 8 Plus.
1) In previous version ,when I was in a meeting ,
And if i get a normal incoming call ,
I can lift and meeting will be going on in background.
But after I update , if I get a call , or if a do a call ,
Meet is ending.
and I need to join again.
2) And in previous version, If I left the meeting,
It will show the meeting id and an option to rejoin..
This facility I can’t see in current version .
3 ) And in previous version , when I press my lock button , iPhone will be locked but meeting will be going on in the background.
But after update , meeting is ending.(Iam automatically leaving the meeting).
Please fix these..
sjasso17 - Need more
Hello, im a student using google meet for classes due to COVID-19. I’ve been in classes for 3 weeks now and in the computer, it lags a lot. It won’t let me go to any other slide because if i do, it starts lagging. And yes you might think it’s my home wifi but no it’s not. Theres times i have many tabs open and everything runs smoothly, but AS SOON as i get into a google meet it all starts lagging. Im not much of a complainer but this just frustrates me much more for online classes and doesn’t help. Please fix it, thank you
Jack The Weenie - Good but needs work
For the most part the app works fine but there are 2 big problems for me. 1. There will sometimes be times where I can’t see anything happening on the shared screen when everyone else can see it fine. 2. If I go into portrait mode out of landscape my screen will turn black for a while and when the screen is normal again it goes back to the black screen and it keeps repeating until I give up and stay in landscape mode.
raffletixx - It’s fine but...
Could u please make it an option to mute people while not being the admin, not for the whole group but maybe just listen to one member - like when u pin one member so u can’t see the rest..? Would be great to be able to listen to only the teacher, for example.. or maybe adjust the volumes bc everyone else seems to be louder than the teacher!
Alex860118 - Just a suggestion
Is there a way that the app can notify people when a certain person sets up a call? In school it’s annoying to join the same link like 20 times until the teacher opens one and It’s annoying. Like maybe a system where you can have your teachers kind of like a contact and whenever they go live you get a notification kinda like social media
p3achums - Layout
I’m a student in quarantine but still attending online schooling. I use google meet to attend my classes but now, with the (mobile) update, the whole layout seems choppy and difficult. Before, you saw yourself on screen and had to choice to mute/not show your face and once you were in a call, the call would take up your entire screen. Another thing that was easy was that the chat was accessible. Now, you have to go through 2 windows just to be in the call.
It was so easy then I don’t know why its been changed.
imBrando_ - My opinion of this app
What they have done with this app is incredible! The programming is perfect and there’s no lag or glitches that have showed up so far. This app is the perfect place to have meetings and talk to friends and family. I haven’t experienced any problems and I never get disconnected or anything while I’m with my group. I believe this app is a 5 star for that reason.
Al the great ninja - RE changes to user interface | chat
In version 45, there was a change to the user interface whereas, the link for getting into the chat changed entirely to a different place.
It would have been helpful if the person posting the release notes to the app store would have appropriately described this particular change to the user interface. I ended up spending 1/2 day trying to figure out why chat stopped "appearing" and that the chat function moved to another place on the interface.
Gustavorocks - Great app
Overall I would recommend this app to anyone who needs a virtual meeting the only thing that bugs me is that if I cover the camera of my phone then the screen turns off that is my only problem and also I don’t know if that is just an iPhone thing or if google meet decided to do that but that is my review so far it’s a great app
Does it matter? シ - GOOGLE! Please
Hey! i love this app!
however you know how on gmail you added the option to have gifs as your profile picture? CAN YOU PLEASEEE add the option so they will animate when you join a class, its just a still image. same for google classroom :(! i really want it to animate, and i would be willing to pay for it too! so when my little profile picture pops up in the google meet it will animate. if you say why u cant to it, or even reply, i will be sure to give a 5 star rating and a 5 star rating on my other account on my ipad. please do this for me! im not the only one who wants this feature.
lightstar :3 - THIS APP GO NOT BRR
I installed this app when my computer was about to die, I was in school and I couldn’t find my charger, so with no hope I had to install this app, I did not see very good reviews, but I had too, I installed it and, IT ASKED FOR MY PASSWORD I DONT REMEMBER IT I TRIED WHAT COULD COME INTO MY HEAD, but as a bad app, IT DID NOT LET ME IN, but it’s more free on computer, I kinda like it, and my computer died, and I could not find a charger, so here’s a few words...FIX THIS OR DIE...jk you won’t die, but please just fix this
Have a nice day-mini will make you go dead
Christine Brayfoable - Idea? Extensions.
I’ve noticed that on mobile you cannot use extensions, this is a downside for me because I find extensions to be EXTREMELY useful when in meetings or classes. I hope that extensions can be brought to mobile devices so that I can work the same on mobile than Desktop. Anyone else finding this to be a problem for themselves?

I love this app, it gives me good quality and ability to look at everyone. This was very easy for school meetings.
ThisIsNoice - Awesome but a few issues
We use this everyday in our daily school Google Meets and Webinars during Covid so this is a great app to connect with friends and family. There is just a few issues though. So the last version you could literally press ONE button to get to the chat but now in the new update you have to press TWO buttons just to get to chat, and you can’t even see your face and others while you type in chat. You can’t edit or delete your messages, or private chat with other people. When you share screen, for example, it says “John Doe joined the meeting.” Then when you don’t want to share, it says “John Doe left the meeting”. Please fix this error, but other than that, the style and the concept is nice. 👍🏻😃😁
Hdhducueiisjdnfnusiwokdjdj - The new update is horrible.
In the old one you could have had the screen as the camera and the chat on the other half but now you can only ever be on the video, taking up the whole screen or you can be on the chat which takes up the whole screen. You also cant just click one button up the top to get to the chat anymore, you have to go through all these other buttons to get there. PLEASE GO BACK TO THE LAST UPDATE.
dalita 🎧 - Get back to the last version plz
The last version was way better at least I could see that chat and the teacher at the same time it was easier to use than this one it’s just a pint to not be able to see what the teacher is doing and not being able to write in the chat is worse. you would have to go through a whole lot of a proses to see that chat, plz fix this problem
Phat bear - New update is terrible
I can’t present!!! I have no issues with the desktop version in presenting and until I updated my iPad, no issues presenting.
I presented yesterday morning, then update the app last night and now can’t present.
I can handle the chat in another window - it’s less than ideal, but tolerable, however the inability to present defeats the purpose of using the app.
TJ NinjaJoey - New update is terrible
It looks and feels worse, features like chat especially have taken a huge step back. Instead of making the meet app more like the gmail version, you should of made the gmail version more like the meet version. Meet used to be a good alternative to Zoom but the team at google has taken a huge step back
Chloe Y8zy - Pretty good, could be better
I like Google meets, it is good for meetings for school, but it would be better if i-pad could have grid view. It can be a little bit glitchy sometimes, but overall it is good 👍
shut up who re - Was good until this update
Google meet was good until this update where you can’t have the chat next to the call. Now it’s just a pain when your trying to look at what the teacher is presenting and the answers you are giving in the chat.
jfensta - Video quality good, lack of grid for iPad bad
Easy to use and share links for family catchups but the lack of grid view makes your head spin when you have 6 people all talking at once.
I play this all the time - Great! But suggestion
Every works good but please make google meet visual a thing for mobile as well :(
bnjmnph - Bring back chat message!
The new update makes meet the worst online meeting app of all compared to zoom and Microsoft teams even worse! Ok, you can’t change background, ok you can’t view all participants together on iPad version. Now you can’t even view the chat together with the camera!
lilghostty - the new mobile update.
this update has ruined the google meet experience on your phone, the chat isn’t as accessible which makes lessons harder
also it literally turns your phone of and on now unexpectedly which has just ruined all my online lessons, this needs to be fixed immediately because everyone that gets online school and does it on their phone will struggle 50x more thanks to your new update.
Heermanu - TOO MANY APP CRASHES!
Whenever I’m in an important school meet, the app always crashes! I always send feedback but you don’t fix it! And I suppose you won’t read this of course >:/ Get the old version back PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
Christiansebastian - Quick and easy
AnnieDooks - it’s worse then zoom
ok just face it you might as well use free zooms then google meets. i have good internet connection and it is still crappy. there’s no grid view which makes it super hard. and teachers STILL use it 🙄
crazykruz - New update is no good
Can’t have chat open and see the video so it’s a pain to write and see what is happening other wise it’s good other than no grid view
official.arz - Why add it with gmail!?
Last time I gave Meet 4 stars. It was pretty good with some minor issues but now, Meet links open in Gmail and the inbuilt Google Meet in Gmail is horrible.
Accessing chats is now a long task.
The audio often breaks
The phone gets very hot and battery drains quickly (this problem was there in meet too but with every update it got better but Gmail made it worse)
Please give us an option to open Meet links in Gmail
hcehbfj - Good
This is a great app although there needs to be a fix....
On iPads there is no grid mode and it is super hard to see so please make a grid mode on ipad :)
hamkani - Update
Hope there is google meet grid for iphone in the next update.
Excellent! AMAZING - It’s so good
It really good I always do my school meeting in it!
Kennyshane - Screen Broadcasting is down!
The latest update has seemed to have broken screen broadcasting! I can’t share my iPad screen with my class now. The iPad shows that screen broadcasting is on but it is simply not feeding into the meet.
Br3@d - Horrible
We use it for school and the video is always blurry, the presentation never works, it’s slow, people can’t hear others, audio breaks up but for some reason the teachers still use it
YoUr HelPful ReVeiWEr - I use it everyday but it does alot of probs for me, i would rather zoom..
I hope this review will be helpful..
rd!reeyjawtmyb - Grid view please!
Please give us a grid view, soon! After 6 months of this I’m fed up of seeing only one person at a time!
Dark ashwin - Disconnects call when pressing power button
It should just turn off the screen instead of hanging up the conversation
😈💩🤫😜😎🙃😘😁 - Hddgbjgcf
It’s a pain to sign into and it’s video and auto quality is very glitchy
matthewnjn - Boom this is very good!
I love it!?.
PhantomEdge11 - Old version better
It was a 5 star but after this new update its just horrible now, I don’t know what the developers were thinking.
Vevo Tv - Good
But needs a tiny fix with iPad please fix it
mkfourhunnid - New update
New update is laggy and confusing the old version was way better.
pissedoffholly - Grid format??
Won’t allow all joining parties to be viewed in a grid format on my iPad. So can only see one person at a time.
ppalsks - Annoying
Should not be a thing.
konchok tendzin - external microphone
When can an external microphone be supported, such as shure mv88
Husky4Sib - Non functional with multiple attendees
Please please release a grid view for iPad!
charlie_gamer1876 - Ok but..
It’s ok but I don’t like doing the feedback on the app
sowhatstheteaaaaa - Only giving it 1 star because
I hate online school lol
jklndts - Hate the new update
I can’t chat properly
Arctic_Foxy - Worst app
Terrible logged me out 13 times no joke don’t get this app
56fbaaj - No grid view
Great but needs grid view! Major flaw.
Ant_007 - It’s great! Functional, easy & free
You cannot beat Google Meet for value, ease and simplicity. It just work with minimal tech requirements or setup. If you’re web browser is up to date, it just works with no downloads or mucking around. It’s easy to invite people (I have a chat now button on my business website). It works on my phone with no problem (depending on internet signal). Screen sharing and presenting is easy too. I’ve used Skype and Zoom but Meet has my vote. It’s just easy, secure and free, can’t beat that. Highly recommend!
micaela🦄 - Bad
The app close whit no reason always idk IS TERRIBLE
NEENEISBUABSKSBSIWBWJWWB - Audio
ALSO LIKE WHEN WE TRY TO WATCH A VIDEO WHILE ON A CALL IT DOES NOT WORK AND LEAVES ME AND GLITCHES ME OUT OF THE MEET AND IS REALLY ANNOYING AMD I CANT SEE OR HEAR ANYONE. FIX IT PLS
Trezen2001 - Doing school meetings
THIS APP IS PURE TRASH LIKE ITS REALLY BAD TRASSHHHHH
Bi11st3r - Weird glitch
For some reason, when I’m off call and doing something else, the volume just increases to full volume without warning. This never happened until I got google meet. It seems like it controls my volume settings. Overall, it’s great but I need you to fix this glitch that happens to my iPad. I am blaming google meet because the volume is lower when you are on call but higher when you are off call. It never happened when I didn’t have this but when we went into lockdown, I had to download this and it’s adjusting my volume settings automatically
Rex&Bill - Good but needs whiteboard
This app has been great for online teaching during pandemic; host controls audio/vid, grid view, present screen mode and it’s also embedded into Google Classroom, these are all great features. It would be even better if it had a simple whiteboard tool that the host could allow others to co-author while in the Meet.
Prettyedith - Improvement suggestions
During call, touching the screen would bring up the mute, video and end call button, but the way they roll up from the bottom makes them really hard to aim, the buttons also disappear again too quickly from the screen.
Please can you also allow an option to pin down the column of participants menu on the right?
Could you please make it possible to relocating the small screen during call? Being able to reposition the small screen closer to the device’s camera can give a better audience appearance as in keeping eye contact.
Chris vR - Suggestions
Please don’t hide the status bar while in the app. It’s very useful to know the time. Also incredibly frustrating that you can’t use the camera in split screen mode, so no way to take notes while on a call. Even after you’ve closed split screen still can’t activate camera without restarting app.
MattColes - Okay for video but need screenshare
Video is okay and I like the quick join from calendars. Does drain my devices battery quite a bit on video.
I use zoom for work alongside google meet and screenshare a lot within zoom. Could replace zoom if i had screenshare which would make life easier and up my rating
.TishJ. - Good but
It’s really frustrating that I can’t change the volume of the meet and it drains my battery very quickly. The audio is also constantly cutting out for everyone and for some reason it isn’t working with my Bluetooth headphones. It would be good if you could get a grid for the phone as well.
r+m=a - Terrible app
This app was glitchy and laggy to the point my daughter could not hear or see her teachers and was given low grades for not knowing what work had to be done. I am very disappointed in this disgraceful app and I do not understand why students couldn’t use apps that they already were logged onto like discord or house party. Don’t bother wasting your time by downloading this terrible app

nathan77liu - Hmm what happened
When I am using a tablet/IPad I cannot join the poll this is very frustrating I cannot go on poll and this does not make sense plz make a update for iPad allowing to use poll/breakout rooms/QandA
Skeleton53 - Stop being childish
This is a great app with no problems so far. It has helped schools and students a lot and I hate seeing other students leaving disgusting reviews to get out of class work. School is important, quarantine or not. Thank you Google!
Ponylz10 - Ignore bad reviews
Why do people say it's stinky? It's great!
Cinnabun the bunny - bad bad bad bad

Federica lawal - Don’t get this stupid app
If you get kicked out of the app they will never let you get back in like I have school and you have the audacity to kick me out when I have school I knew I should’ve zoom
IcedupLew - I can’t join a meeting even with the right code
I have been having trouble joining meetings even with the right code entered and all it would say is “You will join in a moment” and then returns me back to the main screen! Please update and fix app!!!😡
j.lavon - Used all my data, while I was home on my wifi
I’m pretty annoyed. I was at home on my wifi and was on a video call. I hadn’t turned off cellular data yet, bc I had just downloaded this app before the call. I was intentionally in the part of our house that has the best internet connection. And while on the call I got notifications that I had used 90% & the 100% of my data for the month. I got my 50% notification on Sunday. Now I have no data for the next week+ and am going camping. So frustrated!
Reviewer #2786396 - Power hungry and poor user-friendliness
Meet is just a copycat of Zoom, but Zoom works much better (proper noise filtering and audio doesn’t cut during cross-talk between participants), remembers past meeting room numbers (to hop easily on recurring meetings), and doesn’t drain the battery and overheat the phone like you’re powering an entire town with it (compare ~85% drain for 6 hours of sustained videoconferencing on Zoom, while Meet drains 25% in 30 minutes before I have to cut the call because the phone is overheating). This isn’t the quality we have come to expect from Google.
Artistry Stained Glass - Verification
Wonderful assistance, extremely polite and helpful, and patient. A real pleasure!
AppDeveloper38271 - Won’t open Google Meet hyperlinks
Every time I try to open a Google Meet link in Chrome and click “open in meet”, Meet opens but it doesn’t join the meeting. I have to copy and paste links into Google Meet. This used to work perfectly and now breaks every time. Please fix!!
tridant12345 - Dear developers,
I wish there was grid view but other than that Amazing app
Please please please respond
u a nerd - To skeleton53
Ok teachers pet
Tris1475 - An actual critique
The audio quality while in a class is horrible. Robotic voices, stops and more are to expect even with a good internet.
It is also to note that there is a delay between the voice and the video.
When you share a computer screen, you can barely see any movement. Its like its running at 4 frames per seconds.
BAMMI 2005 - The background effects feature
How can I use the background effects feature?
flow1 - Story wasn’t true
I blowed and teacher didn’t hear me. USING: iPad mini 2
gahahajaya - I hate it
It’s so laggy and kicks me all the time it’s trash zoom is better one hundred percent. I was in a business call and I got kicked and lost my top paying client so bad
mohamed.hamad - Really needs grid view
I use this app and service for work on a daily basis, but on iPad, it’s really hard to work with when there is no grid view in large meetings. The auto switching between speakers in a large group is really disturbing
dkdkdkkxk - The worst app
So many glitching all the time. No thank you Google
lilypad8910 - Kicks me off
Every single time I join I get kicked of at least 2 times and it is not my phone and it always gets choppy.
wdfueodkjc - Muted but can still hear me
So im in class right? I say “Here” when my teacher called me right? I “Muted” my mic. Then my teacher said “(my name) the mic stays muted at all times”.
wre45h - make it better for mobile devices
Too much lag and sometimes i cant hear anything

Andy.Zs - App makes my screen go black
The app works great for meetings etc but currently I am using it on my Iphone 8 and occasionally (every few minutes) the entire screen will go black which is irritating when you are trying to click buttons on the screen or type in the chat.
spaceymanjohn - Please fix this or I cant get a job
I'm in GR4 right now and my Teacher got angry at me because theres this glitch that doesn't let me turn on the camera. The lights are on, yes the white light showing that it's recording but-my teacher kicks me out anyway. Please fix this fast..
dragon master😺 - Really good
Ignore the bad reviews those are students who want to get out of classwork
kgill098 - I use this for online class

The quality is just bad.
Necole1012 - Perfect online meeting app
So far so good
Cheapskate99.5 - Latest update is Garbage
Apparently the new version has made it very easy to accidentally drop out of meetings. Not appreciated.
Also, what happened to text messaging? Don’t see it anywhere.
Achahla - Should have used zoom
I tried joining my class it put in a whole new one and I missed all the instructions and the teachers pets everyone is a teachers pet they always have there mic’s on and when I turn one my mic for 0000000.1 second I get kicked
jayiscoolsomuch - It’s good
Pinkpurplelove you don’t like school?
mckennawong - It could be better
I rate it a two star because my headphones mic won’t connect and it is very glitchy and kicks me out lots. You can do better google and also I am on google meet every day for school and teachers and students have lots of technical difficulties please fix the bug. Thanks
12george21 - :)
First of all, I don’t know why everyone thinks this app is so bad. Sure it glitches like once or twice MAYBE, but it overall has really good sound and vision. I use it really often, and it comes in handy. I love this app. Don’t listen to the bad reviews.
The only really negative thing I have is the new updates. Why must you keep changing it? I liked the older version better, where you can see the chat and also the Meet at the same time, instead of just the messages. If you’re going to keep updating it like this, at least add the option for grid view on the app.
Bluberriez21 - Great app
Great app. I’m cancelling zoom!
teddy bear jellys - new ui looks bad
its good but i dont like how the new ui looks. the older one was better since you could see the chat and the people/presentation. you cant do that on the new one

jeenmogo - ok but still needs to improve
ok so sometimes i’m in a meeting and i leave, i’d like if there was a menu where i could REJOIN that meeting, a menu where i can see previous meetings and options to rejoin them. i’d also like better options for microphone and camera like double tap to activate because i live in constant fear of accidentally opening my mic or camera lol this is serious
ak_chigirl - Needs updates to make student friendly
Google Meet on the iPad needs the same updates that were made in chrome: grid view is essential for a classroom experience. It currently isn’t available on an iPad. Also turning the video off on split screen is also not a good. This should be left up to user. Many classroom teachers want the video on while the student is working in another app. Please update the app to make it more school friendly.
Chuck-IV - Seriously, no grid view even on iPad???
This app is a mess without it. I see about 4 tiles for a few seconds then they disappear. Then when someone speaks the entire screen changes to their face. If two people are talking it switches back and forth constantly. The screen view just continually jumps from person to person. I’m surprised people haven’t complained about seizures with the amount of screen flashing. Then when a person comes on screen, it is a pixelated mess for a couple seconds before it kinda clears up.
What a mess. Seriously Google DO BETTER or this app is history.
Likmebolls - I don’t like it
As a high school student who uses this app for 17 hours a day, everyday, for the past 8 months now i can say without a doubt it’s not good. I think there should be a mode where you can leave your guy on the meet so you can shut off your computer or phone and they still think you’re listening. It would literally be amazing. There should also be a mode were you can share memes with people and have it pop up on the main screen, and anyone could do it. Other than my professional opinion, i truly believe this app is, Complete, Utter, GARBAGE.
Bruinbear99 - Audio and Video are fine. The new Chat interface...nope
I am a teacher and use this app to meet with my students often. Many don’t like to speak, they type instead. This used to be on the side of the screen and could be monitored while seeing others/presenting. Now the chat takes up the middle of the screen and only recent items are viewable otherwise. Please go back to the old version here, it was so much more useful.
S.S Smith - The functions changed for the worse
I use the app for online classes and the interphase was great until recently the app was modified. I don’t understand the change but now it is terrible.
I use it on my iPhone, new messages no longer update on the screen, the screen is now narrow, unlike before it now uses my gmail to connect and it no longer runs perfectly in the background. Worse when I receive a call because it would log out.
I think this app should be downgraded to what it used to be initially from about April, may, June
Moody Teacher 4ever - Please bring back these features
I am a teacher who has been using google meet on my iPad Pro. Using my iPad as a 2nd device during class was a lifesaver. Something changed this week. I can no longer see the chat option on the side of the screen. The breakout rooms and polls are no longer available. I liked being able to use/control these features while presenting to my class on my main device (MacBook). I don’t know why you did this update but it is horrible.
Bluebunny711 - Camera not working
I am using meet for school on my Apple iPad, my iPad is a year old and does not have major issues. I tried to go in meet and turn my camera on but it said my camera was on even though I could see nothing. I had this problem last year and it’s very stressful and annoying since we all have to keep our cameras on. I have been using my phone for meets but in not very good. My phones a 11 and my iPads and iPad Air (newest one) please try to fix this problem thank you. Gabriella
Wyatt 🌝 - WE NEED AN ATTENDANCE FEATURE
My school is using this app for distance learning. It works just fine, but things would work so much better if there was an attendance feature where students could check a box saying they are “present” and if they don’t check-in it would count as “absent”. This would make things much easier for both the teacher and the students.
Ellie_8898382 - iOS/Android Problem
Since the new update for google meet, I can’t see everyone’s faces and if an administrator needs to see a student’s face, you can’t really do that. And it’s hard. Can there be an option for a grid view and a pin to pin the person’s head and see them while also seeing everyone else?
Oneflapdown - Latest keeps dropping the screen share and session
This latest version keeps dropping the screen share when you switch to another app on an ipad. Not only does it drop the screen share, but it makes you leave the meet if you stay switched on another app for too long.
If you split screen with other apps, it maintains the screenshare, but the previous versions of meet used to maintain the session no problem, making meet a very useful too for collaborations.
This new version has completely broken that. please fix.
jay1083769 - Since the new update.
My daughter use google meet for school and recently she’s unable to use the camera feature it will appear either black or her icon. I checked the settings to ensure the camera was not blocked or turned off but everything seems to be working fine. I am not sure if this issue happened after a new iOS update or the app update but this issue started happening since Friday and I am unable to resolve this issue. It is a inconvenience for my daughter as the teachers require the students to be on camera.
Anna Smash - Doesn’t work in background after new update
This app was good for a long time. It seems it may have updated, and now it immediately leaves the meeting when the phone screen is turned off. Hopefully they can fix it in the next update! I really liked that the app would work in the background or with the screen off.
lurl - Important feature missing
It’s dumb how there’s no attendance check-in feature included in the app considering how many people have to use this app for distance learning. Taking roll call takes too much valuable time out of lessons that are already shortened. We know you have this technology available, so just stop being lazy and implement it already. Don’t make the district download a separate app for this simple feature.
Tyclaner - TILED VIEW FOR iOS, PLEASE!!!!!
I have a strong feeling that this comment will get lost in the abyss of other comments/reviews, but I have to say this in the hopes that the Google Meet team is reading this:
Please allow iOS devices (at least iPadOS) to allow grid (tiled) view of cameras. I am an Elementary music teacher, and I need to be able to see all of my students performing and participating. If you are able to do this on Chromebooks/Laptops/Computers, you should be able to add this function of iOS devices too.
layechips - Great app but..
This is a great app for school, all my teachers use it but the new update it’s too similar to zoom, it’s harder to access the chat and I can’t see the screen while on the chat. Also, it’s hard to see everyone and the screen. I think the old version way better, it’s less complicated and much more efficient. Hopefully there’s a change
Narglesarereal - The browser version works better for me
This is one of the rare cases for me where the app is not as “current” or enhanced as the browser version. IF I enter a google meeting via safari I have the ability to use tile view all works very nice. But if I enter via the app (chrome browser hands off to the app too) then I DO NOT have the tile view or the option to change layout.
Sad but it seems the browser version on the iPad is more functional then the updated app.
TechTerr0r - Google Meet Polls, Breakout Rooms and Q&A
I love Google Meet, but I usually use google meet on a computer and it’s so much easier. But, I am on a trip (car ride) and my teacher has just set up a poll. I can not participate in it because There either is no poll option through this app, or I don’t know how to find the poll option to respond. If I could, that would be awesome! Thank you!!
unlnown 0700 - That update though
I liked it before the new update but now I can’t see who’s talking and the chat at the same time, which makes things harder. Also I have to replay in my earbuds every time so sound doesn’t go through the speak of my phone. Can y’all make it so I can see the chat and people speaking at the same time. Also don’t make it to where all the messages delete if you leave the call because sometimes I have to leave and come back so it can reconnect and then I can’t see the stuff that was there before.
XboxGuy200 - Use google duo or another app!!
So, today me and my friend tried to use this app. I honestly wish I used Google Duo or Zoom or something else that wasn’t this hard. First of all my friend didn’t have a texting area/chat box. I told her where it was but she didn’t find it. Another thing is that the audio is bad. My friend couldn’t hear me so I didn’t know what to do. And, the app had something weird where I saw 2 screens of me & my friend. As soon as I hung up, my friend deleted the app, and I did as well. Use another app. Don’t use it this is too hard!!!!
😜😝stir crazy😝😜 - School meeting
I think it’s really fun meeting will not need to see my teachers and friends because sometimes I get lonely and sad when I’m by myself because my mom works my dad works and my sister and brother is at Laura babysitter while I’m at home and so it’s fun seeing my teacher in class needs to give it a five star rating
TronMax - The new update is disappointing
I liked how they tried to make the app more modern, but it seems like they’re going backwards In a lot of ways.
- You can’t have a meeting with the chat by your side anymore. You have to chose one or the other.
- It’s now harder to get to settings you have to go to change, or just popping the chat out.
- Now when you pin someone, the others HAVE to stay there. You can’t hide them.
Please bring the features we had back. It’s okay to keep the modern style, but don’t go backwards on things.
Kitty Star🐈🐆😃🐱🐶🐼🐯🐯 - Best app
First of all I woke up five minutes ago and I’m using the speech button so things sound weird play my alarm clock for not waking me up early I got this app,When I started fifth grade and it’s great give me a suggestion sorry the only suggestion I have is that being a virtual backgrounds oops that we can have a virtual backgrounds
boieveryusernameistaken - Alr but not Alr
So I had to download this last app last year before the new update and I liked the old update cause it had the chat box right next to the box with people but know I have to press the options and 3 dots and something like that and it wast a bit of time so if you can make the chat more easier to access that would be great 👍🏼
kanye?? - miss the old setup
I’ve never had a problem with the app, it works fine! I just don’t really find the new layout update all that appealing, especially since the chat box isn’t right there and the grid view was the easiest view. if possible, please make the light mode layout available again soon.
Jackilayne - new update??
The app is great overall, but I find the new update really confusing. Before I could look at my screen with the in-chat messages simultaneously, but now it opens a separate screen which is a bit annoying. The default orientation of the screen became portrait too, and frankly I liked the default landscape screen. Great work on everything else by the way— I love that I can have closed captions.
Grid View needed! - Fix iPad version!
I’m sick of developers not treating iPad’s like computers. You cannot use Grid version on ipad which basically makes this app totally useless. If I can only see one member of my team at a time (I cant even see their live cameras on the thumbnails) then this app is totally useless. Zoom and other competitors don’t force you into this—even on PHONES. Come on guys... :/
Also, everyone has to be on mute except those talking, not horrible but seems like an issue that could be fixed and make the quality of interaction better.
Viking🐨🦉🐴🐴🐵 - Works well but could be better
In my French class people get bumped out all the time due to internet. Ms then has to copy and paste every note in the chat, as the past of the chat isn’t available to the new participant. This could be fixed to insure maximum learning in a short period.
Sydney Rj - Needs improvement!
I like using Google Meet because it’s an easy app to maneuver but my issues are that you can’t use the grind function on the iPad and the Chromebook version lags so much. The app on the iPhone and iPad runs better than it does on the Chromebook which is supposed to be compatible with Google. I hope these issues are resolved soon because I have to use Google Meet every day for school.
Rahaf-971 - Recording the meeting
Great app, the features are similar to the ones on the laptop however, I can’t seem to record the meeting and upload them on the drive for my students through the iPad and I’m hoping that this problem would be fixed soon
Bellaninah - New update is REALLY bad!
I’ve been using meet since April to have my online classes, and it was ok... in your phone the thing is bad! While in the computer you can see multiple faces at once, in your phone you barley see one!
I know it should be different, but while everyone is talking about how “Jennifer is sleeping in class” im looking only to the teachers laugh! Also, now the space to see the screen is even smaller... i jest HATE IT! When i entered the link for the first time after the update, i really thought i was in a nother app.
Babithuqq - I’d give it more stars if it had grid view for IOS
I’m aware it has a grid view for laptops—-however, iPad is more efficient for remote learning when it comes to small children (age 5) and unfortunately( it doesn’t offer the grid view (zoom does btw but the schools are using google meets).... I’m sure soon google will offer the grid view and I’ll be able to give the app 5 stars—until then 3 stars.
Dustin Werkheiser - READ THIS! *PRIVACY WARNING*
So recently I have been seeing an orange dot on the top right of my phone after the IOS 14 update. I looked up “what is the orange dot at the top of my phone” and heres the answer: “You’re phones microphone is being accessed by an application” I go onto meet and check my app, it says that my microphone is off. I quick turn it on and back off to see if the orange microphone dot dissapears but it doesn’t. Makes me wonder if they can also see me despite me manually turning off my camera. Just saying everybody.
what-:the-:actual-:hell-:....? - A suggestion
As a student some people are insecure about showing their face so I think y’all should make the app so only the teacher can see your face not the other students only the teacher we obviously would be in a class with other students but they would only be able to hear us not see us that could be a solution and might be very helpful.
heyyyyyyyyyy: ) - I love this app
It is basically a better face time! I use it for school all the time and it always works. There is many different layouts, so it works for everyone. There are a couple things you need to fix. One being adding a chat feature like zoom. But yeah great app.
ppl117 - Not good for classes
For whatever reason, our school district selected Google Meet for elementary schools. Half the time, you can't see or hear the teacher requiring logging out and back in. It's like a kindergartener is required to learn an IT job just to use this app. And when it does work, you can only see a few other students and the others are just their google letter. We never had any of these issues with her zoom preschool classes.
catraven222 - Not good
As a student, I use this app more than five times a day, every single day of the week. I'm constantly having problems with it, like getting in. Late because the app decides to not open, even if my other apps and Wi-Fi are working perfectly fine. Sometimes the app randomly will kick me out of the meets. And make me late, period. Also the chat box doesn't always work, and what I'm trying to type doesn't always go through. The video and sound is very laggy as well.
Gvygy - Grid/gallery view?
Why in the world would you not have grid/gallery view? Especially because it’s clearly a feature for other devices. Google, support iPad users like you do PC users and I will throw money at you. I cannot tell you how much I want to use the google suite for my business but if there is not adequate support for mobile devices, it’s is not a option for my team or for my clients.
Let iPad have full functionality please
B McGiv - Grid View
I am a teacher and I use my google meet iPad app to have a second monitor to see my students when I am presenting on my laptop screen. The problem is I can only really see 5 kids. It would be wonderful if somehow the grid extension was available for the app because I cannot are all my students and they are muted most of the time so I rely on them to raise their hand.
oadjs sjd - Problems keep occurrin 😬
I use google meets for school. I think bc everyone is on here it so slow and doesn’t work most of the time. For two weeks of school I’ve been havin the same problem with google meets were if I try to go in a call it ask me to “ask to join” but b4 it wouldn’t and I could just join and it only does this with my two classes at 11:49 a.m. everyday.
Teach jhddcg - Doesn’t contain all the features.
Pretty useful for school however when the teacher uses the breakout room feature it doesn’t work on mobile and neither do a couple other features such as hand raising and answering polls. Also can’t join from a link even when you click “open in app”. Definitely could be improved.
Кухтя - Good for daily usage but not for work
I love google meet, but when I tried using it for work purposes from the iPad I was disappointed. The reason is mainly in screen presenting feature. It is very laggy which is making presentation of the dynamic actions, like document scrolling, or looking through the big table in excel very uncomfortable for the viewers.
Waiting for the enhancements in this area.
windrago - it just works
and it keeps getting better and way more practical in terms of quick and do type of tasks! Love it. Would love to have the ability to control the background but I am sure it will get there
MillieMaBirdie - As a student, I can say that this app is..
This app is easy to use and very quick to join, but when it gets too laggy, I and everyone else gets kicked out, and sometimes it makes people freeze and sometimes it hopeless to try and get back in because you’ll just get kicked out. Thank you, but please fix if you can, it’s great but needs fixing!
Toca taco gamer :) - Select who you want to see in grid view? Plz?
It would be really nice if you could select what people you’d like to see in the grid view because if you have a big class meeting, you can see select people you need to
Shaplus - Excellent
This was my first time using Google Meet and it was so easy to setup. I requested a link and emailed to the group. I thought I had to add it to the calendar in order for it to work but that was not necessary. I will definitely use again and again.
awsomeness5785 - Great, but needs a few tweaks
So I love the app but it needs more accessible features that you could find on the computer. One of them is that you can’t name a meeting. The auto generated are ok but if you want a meeting for a specific thing you can’t name it. But overall the app is easy to use and fast.
Digital Copywrite - Bugged
Meet links do not open in Meet. Basic application stuff guys, come on. Oh wait you just want to market your next failed chat app from Gmail... and annoy everyone in the process. Got it.
Hahaha and they reply to tell me that it’s by design. More bad design by Google and they are proud. Nailed it guys. I never ever want to open a Meet in Gmail. Should be against App Store rules to intercept links. Google’s response is that they’ve made Meet links harder to open up in Google Meet, and it was by design. Brilliant.
concernedpotatoe123 - Weird glitch
I dint know if it’s just me but sometimes when I go to another app while on meets like my screen turns black constantly for a good 10 seconds then stops. That’s really my only complaint it never happened before until the update where they changed the layout. Overall it’s good because I have to do school vids chats on here.
Hahfngjx - Cool but bugs out
I have to use this a lot for online classes at school. When on a meet the phone screen will randomly turn off and I can’t do anything but wait till it decides to turn back on again. I can still hear what’s going on but when I’m in a math class it’s frustrating cause I will miss steps and have to ask to go back.
