Cannot Mute Speakers
Relatively good app, minus one minor flaw which delivers a significant problem: you can’t mute the speakers. Very often, I’ll join a Meet from my phone, but then need to join via iPad for a quick screen share. But on the iPad, you can’t mute the speakers. You can only turn it down to one bar which is enough to be heard by others around you or to be distracting if you’re not wearing headphones. This shouldn’t be that difficult to fix, but a search shows that it’s been persistent for a while. C’mon, Google. Please fix this.
You can do it, Google.
Friends, come on.
If Meet was a hybrid option, we wouldn’t be having this conversation; but when the app is a must-download in order to join a call and it follows up with a slew of issues - it becomes a problem.
1) It won’t allow you to use the app like a phone, it’s speakerphone or nothing (makes for an uncomfortable Uber ride)
2) I plug in my earphones but without a mic, it’s unusable (this does not happen with my normal phone calls)
3) Even with full service, the call continues to cut out until there’s simply no point to go on (now it’s an uncomfortable team meeting)
It frustrates me that Google forces you to download an app in order to use its services, but the app is what renders the service useless. Instead of looking at the services from a micro level, we need to view from a macro level and see how each service can support the other and not cut the consumer out. If you need an integrated manager, call me.
Has a critical flaw on iPad, and no screen sharing!
You can’t multitask with other apps while in a meeting. The app will start pausing the audio and eventually drop you out of the call if you’re switched to a different app after a few minutes.
While iOS 12 supports screen sharing in apps, and Webex allows this, Hangouts Meet does not support it.
Besides these critical missing pieces, for the most part performance is adequate and the UI is easy to use. This would be four stars with screen sharing support and cleaning up some bugs.
