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).

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.

Google Meet can be accessed from various devices and we have discussed them in detail here : Link
