How can I tile the view of my participants?
As they say with Smartphones: “There’s an app for that!”
As we say with Chromebooks: “There’s an extension for that!”
If you install the Google Meet Grid Extension, you will have a lovely tiled view with all meeting participants! In the screenshot below, you can see a grid beside the people & chat links. That was placed there by the Grid extension, and allows for the display shown in the image.
