With Google Meet Grid View and Push to Talk, you can have a better overview of your meeting participants and quickly join the conversation by pushing a button to talk without having to turn on and off your microphone every time you contribute to the conversation.
Online meeting hosts frequently find themselves in situations where they need to split participants into smaller groups for discussions, brainstorms, … Google Meet’s lack of a feature that satisfies this need, usually known as breakout rooms, is a common reason online meeting hosts turn away from Google Meet for other platforms like Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
With Google Meet Breakout Rooms extension for Chrome, Google Meet users now can enjoy the best of both worlds with Google Meet’s lightweight, ease-of-use and Zoom-like feature of breakout rooms
If you host a lot of online meetings, you must have frequently experienced meetings that run overtime. This is an unpleasant experience for both the host and participants as a meeting that ends late could affect everyone’s plans and productivity.
However, it is not exactly any more productive if the host of a meeting has to keep checking the clock to keep track of meeting time. This would be a big distraction and would affect the quality of the meeting if the host is not focused and engaging in the conversations taking place during the meeting.
A solution to this is to use a timer extension such as Call Timer for Meet. Meeting hosts can offload the task of managing the time to this extension by setting the intended start and end time of any online meetings using Google Meet.

While Zoom is popular for its extensive features offering and Microsoft Teams for native integration with Microsoft Office, Google Meet users usually cite the platform’s ease-of-use and generous free plan as their reasons for using Google Meet.
