If you don’t use Meet and hate that Google is forcing it on Gmail, this article is for you.
So, Meet has finally arrived in Gmail, just as Google warned us it would happen. The American giant hopes that Gmail will boost Meet usage numbers and it’s using it’s position to dwarf it’s competitors, aka Zoom.
It’s an asshole move from Google, but that’s nothing news. At list they left an option for you to disable Meet from Gmail, if you have no use for it.
Here’s how to disable Meet in Gmail for Android
Open Settings from the left side menu in Gmail;
Open your your Gmail account section from there;
Scroll down until you see the Meet subtitle;
Toggle off this option: “Show the Meet tab for video calling”.
After that, the app will refresh it’s interface and the Meet waste of space is gone.
