Google Meet is getting a much-need layout update for Android and iOS
This should make the mobile experience much better.
Group video chats on Google Meet features a grid layout on devices with large screens. The experience on smartphones, however, leaves a lot to be desired. Fortunately, Google took note of the discontent that was brewing among mobile Google Meet users.
As a result, the company is now working on a better version of the group video chat option for mobile users. Now, we are seeing the fruits of their labor, as the company has released the new grid view for iOS users. So, instead of video chatting with one caller at a time, Meet ensures that you can view several participants placed in a grid across your screen.
