Can not fully Mute 2/5
Huge flaw (as others have also indicated) in that you can’t fully mute the audio (phone or iPad).
Why do I need to sign in? 1/5
It’s very stupid how it forces you to sign in with your google account to join any meeting. If I can join anonymously from a browser? Why should I from an app?
Google - Please fix this app! 2/5
Similar to other users’ feedback, there’s no way to have no audio during a Meet session on the iPad. I can lower to the lowest level but I can still hear people from my iPad. I also cannot share my screen or a window. Can we please add this ability to the app??
Mute Option 2/5
Read other reviews and thought it’s impossible you can’t mute speakers. Maybe people are just missing something.
Well, nope you can’t mute speakers ! Even tuning down the iPad to low volume doesn’t mute but is still out enough for others to hear.
Needs to be fixed ASAP
We use hangouts for work and the new ‘meet’ doesn’t work on safari and there’s no Mac app. I don’t want to download chrome or safari just for meetings.
Missing key features and no way to shut off speaker 1/5
Can’t share a doc or screen from iPad
Can’t turn volume to zero, causing feedback, which is a huge pain if you have to use a cell phone for audio.
Keeps asking for feedback at end of every meeting.
Honestly, this is the bee's knees of vidcon 5/5
Think about the benefits. Doxoyy have a Google account? Probably yes. Do you own or work for a business? Probably.
This app makes it insanely easy to add video conferencing to a meeting. That solves a lot of problems I've seen with video conferencing.
Then if I join or get an invite like this it's one click it join. No plugins to download even though it's technically possible for all their competitors to do. App is just as easy to use, thanks to you Google Meet iOS team.
p.s. please add iOS screen sharing
Robot Voices, Awful Audio, and often Glitches 1/5
DO NOT PURCHASE THIS APP! It is the worst app that I have ever used. Whenever I was talking through it, the person on the other side texted me, telling me that she heard a robot- like voice through the speakers. I did not believe her, until it happened to me myself! Another thing that annoys me about the app is that it takes a long time to load the chat. Once it finished loading, it said that I entered an ‘invalid code’. I advise you not to use this app. Google did an awful job making this. Don’t waste your time with this Google Meet junk. FaceTime and Skype are WAY better and save a lot of time and energy. I am so unimpressed.
App is always hanging and sometimes flickers
Works again 5/5
Great for freezing your iPhone! 1/5
This version is terrible. Frankly google should be ahead of Webex, instead they have an app which constantly freezes, making your whole experience terrible.
Super flaky on iPhone XR max 1/5
Please fix it ASAP
Cannot Mute Speakers 3/5
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.
Locks up after joining calls 1/5
Recently started locking up after joining calls. Can’t do anything on phone. Have to wait up to 30 seconds to unfreeze and if I don’t kill the app immediately it locks up again.
Bad out of box experience 1/5
We bought a google suite for our new startup and decided to try our first online meeting. Although the app connected seamlessly, there is no audio at all. A setback really. Now I m thinking of cancelling the g suite.
Cannot believe engineers at google can’t even make a video chat app without any crashes. Crashes all the time!
Crashing on iPhone XS Max 1/5
Worked fine, but now crashes with every use.
Freezing/Crashing on iPhone XS Max 1/5
I’ve used this app for years, and for about 2 min on this new phone with no problems. Then all of a sudden this week it’s unusable. It freezes, locks the phone, drops the call, etc. Reinstall did not help. At this point it’s useless. Fix this issue!!
App crash constantly on iPhone XsMax 1/5
The app keeps on crashing constantly when we join the calls.
Freezes iPhone XS Max everytime!! 1/5
I even deleted and reinstalled the app, it’s totally unusable. I can’t join business meetings because of this issue. Please fix ASAP.
Has a critical flaw on iPad, and no screen sharing! 2/5
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.
Doesn’t work with iPad Pro 1/5
Hangouts Meet is currently giving the following error message whenever I try to enable video in a meeting in on my iPad Pro:
"You can use the camera only when Meet is on the screen by itself"
The error occurs even when Hangouts Meet is the only application running on the iPad. I'm using iOS 12.1 on an iPad Pro 11". The error has rendered our Google-based video meeting system unusable on this tablet. Thank you for any help!
Updated: camera fixed on iPad Pro 3/5
Update on 11/19 fixed video on 2018 iPad Pro 11”. Updating to 3 stars from 1. Will increase again when screen sharing is added.
Doesn’t Work with New IPads 1/5
By Jared Morgenstern
Google Meet/Hangouts is great on the web but on the new IPad Pro’s it doesn’t work, always saying “To use the camera, meet must be the only thing on the screen.” However, it is. I saw this in another person’s review too. It says it has this error even if meet is the only app running.
The worst part is that if you try to join a meeting from your iPad, you can’t even use the web workaround to do it from chrome - it forces you to use the app which doesn’t work.
Please prioritize a fix for this, it would be much appreciated.
No video 1/5
What’s the point of a video conferencing app that can’t access the iPad video camera?
Camera not working with new iPad Pro 1/5
Throws up an error indicating that it needs to be the only app on screen. Seems to be no way around this and makes the app useless.
Camera can't be used on iPad Pro 2018??? 2/5
Unable to use camera with google meet, it always thinks it is not alone on the screen and shows an error that it needs to be on screen by itself. Even after just turning on he iPad an making sure no other apps are running.
Crashes iPhone XS Max on iOS 12.1 1/5
By Charlie Glass
The app has become completely unusable. The app becomes unresponsive and crashes my device. I have to force quit the app and restart my phone.
Does not work with 2018 iPad Pro 1/5
The app will start and allow you to connect but it cannot access the camera. You get an error when trying to use the camera even though it's enabled in the settings.
The app also crashes frequently without providing any crash details.
Awful just awful 1/5
And opens with the wrong Google account
And fires up the camera with out asking
Junk on iOS 1/5
By john w r
Cannot connect to meetings. I get to “Ask to join”. I ask to join and timeout every time. Meeting host never sees me. Tried from 3 devices
Worked fine 5/5
I was a little hesitant with using this because of all the bad reviews. I just had a meeting on my iPad Pro and I didn’t have any issues.
Headphone work but not mic 2/5
By iPhone Game Lover
So I can hear the conversation but mic doesn’t work. I’m using a lightning jacked headphone on iPhone X.
No dial in? 1/5
I need an app? Why can’t I just dial in? I’m in the car! This is garbage!
Most Inaccessible App I have Seen 1/5
Voiceover did not read a single word or title.Worst accessibility I have ever seen on the Iphone. Why not simply improve existing products instead of launching a new voice or text chat application every other month?
haven’t we been here before 1/5
how does google keep trashing and rehashing their messaging apps so quickly?
Why do I need this? 1/5
This is completely unnecessary. Why does this have to be a new app? Can’t you just keep it as part of Hangouts.
I don’t know 15 google apps on my phone for every tiny function.
Terrible audio/video quality 1/5
It’s mind boggling Google can’t ensure good quality for audio and video. Been like this for over a year - is it they don’t care or can’t fix it? Who knows. Have a backup ready like GoToMeeting or Zoom.
Good app ! 5/5
Sloppy transition 2/5
I hardly know (or care) why this is different from the Hangouts app they had before. It’s gotten better lately, but competitors like WebEx have web conferencing figured out. Skip Meet if possible.
Good, but could be better 4/5
Works well, but needs a couple more fixes...
New appointments don't always show up in time to dial in!
The hovering hangupmbutton disappears to fast to reliably hit at the end of a call!
So much better than Hangouts! 5/5
As a regular Hangouts (now Meet) user, I’m thrilled with the improvements, streamlined interface and ease of use. My only request is that Google Drive sharing be integrated as it was with Hangouts.
Cannot Share Screen 2/5
Sort of ridiculous you cannot share screen in iOS.
Multiwindow support pleeease! 4/5
Multiwindow support pleeease!
New update broke it 1/5
Updated to 14.0.0 a few hours ago and now my iPhone can receive chats but not send them. They just sit at “sending...” permanently.
Screen share not working 1/5
I joined a meeting with this app and it was impossible to see what other people was sharing.
Does not meet minimum expectations of a “meeting tool”
Doesn’t work 1/5
I don’t know why hangouts was transitioned to Meet but ever since all morning meetings have been horrible. Audio is so bad, it almost makes me wonder if this product really belongs to Google and what went wrong with this.
Surprisingly good 5/5
Can’t believe how high quality this was on mobile on a mediocre LTE connection.
