Ratings and Reviews
App not great
I love Hangouts meet on the web. It’s a little frustrating that it only works in Chrome, however when you use it in Chrome it’s pretty great. I love the idea of what google is going for.
On iPhone it’s a mediocre experience. It’s an ok app that works well enough most of the time, but it feels like an afterthought. As long as it continues to be polished, I think it’s in good shape.
The biggest problem is that it doesn’t have iPad support (and I want iPad Pro support). It’s kind of ridiculous that there is a meeting app that doesn’t have iPad and iPad Pro 13” support. That would be my biggest complaint on this app.
I really hope they continue to aggressively push this forward. I would love to replace our other meeting platform within the company with Meet, but with things like this missing, it’s not something we can do yet.
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.
