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


Type "" in the URL of the browser

Enter the "Meet Code" shared by the Teacher

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"

Enter your E-mail address

Enter your password

Approve the necessary Browser permissions


Click "Join now", you will join after the Teacher approves your request

You can adjust the audio in settings, you can choose a different set of speakers for better listening

The "Receive Resolution" is available in 360p and 720p, the later being higher

If the broadcast is in 720p, you switch to 720p as well for more video clarity
