How to use Google Meet - For Students - A step by step guide
In this article, we will look at the Google Meet Application in detail, we will focus on Student specific features. If you are a Teacher, your interface is discussed in a separate article here : Link
Screenshots shown in this article are taken on a Laptop, with the application accessed through a browser. If you use other devices like Phones or Tablets, the layout of the screen and the placement of the buttons will change, but the features and functionality will remain the same (We tested it on many devices).
Starting Google Meet
If the School uses "GSuite for Education", you do not need to provide the "Meet Code", you can login with Gmail and join the live session with the link displayed on the "Class Card"
Approve the necessary Browser permissions
Click "Join now", you will join after the Teacher approves your request
Google Meet Interface
Sample : All the available controls in Google Meet are displayed below.
Turn off the microphone and camera if the Teacher has instructed you upfront
Features and Settings
"Turn on captions" if you follow them better or if your audio is not clear
If the broadcast is in 720p, you switch to 720p as well for more video clarity
Post your Questions in the chat, Teacher may answer them right away or choose to answer towards the end of the session
Hang up at the end of the session
We see that Google Meet is fairly simple, all we need to know is the location of the controls, hopefully, we discussed most of them in this article. If there is any specific question for us, which we have not answered already, you can please post it to the comments below. We will try to explore the answer.
