By allowing anyone to easily access the video conferencing service directly from the Gmail app for iOS and Android devices, Google has deeply integrated its Google Meet service into Gmail. This eliminates the need to use a separate Google Meet application to participate in meetings. This is all you need to know.
How to find Google Meet in Gmail?
Gmail provides access to Google Meet through the new big tab at the bottom of its interface. This new tab appears next to the “Mail” tab. Otherwise, the “video conference” call in the Gmail app will work the same as the video call in the “Meet” app, but the difference is small.
Start a video call
You can start a video call by opening the Gmail app and clicking the “Conference” tab. You will see the option to start a new meeting and disable the microphone and camera. You can add participants by sharing the meeting code and via email or phone link.
Join a video call
You can join a meeting in Gmail by tapping the “meeting” link in Google Calendar or through a “meeting” link that may be shared with you via Gmail, Google Chat, or a third-party application. You can also go to the “Meetings” tab in the Gmail app and select “Join with code.”

- Open Gmail on the web.
- Go to settings.
- Choose to chat and have a meeting.
- In the “Meeting” section, make changes.
