Restarting and clearing the cache won’t help, Google. This isn’t a bug either. It’s on all my devices, Mac to my phone (MacBook 12-inch, iPhone 12/XR, and iPad mini 5). On my computer it’ll ask “are you talking” because it’s continuously listening and I don’t know if this is a feature or something, but I don’t see who needs this. Just please remove this feature or whatever this is supposed to be, I’m really uncomfortable seeing the orange dot and my mic is off… and if you don’t know what I’m talking about, there is a new feature in iOS/iPadOS 14 and macOS 11 Big Sur, where a orange and green dot appears to let you know that your microphone or camera is in use. And you guys haven’t launched an update in 2 months, so don’t you think that pretty much everyone is on version 51.5.0? Oh and also, every time I use my phone for a meet, my screen turns black every time something is over my Proximity sensor, for example, a pencil or something, it screen turns black!
what I mean meet in certain places. But when I want my microphone turned off, I want my microphone off. Why does it still show an orange dot when my mic is off? I was in a meeting and I got told “turn off your mic” and mic was already off! No, like seriously no joke. Please remove whatever feature this is supposed to be because why is the microphone still enabled in the background when you tabbed disable?
The screen inactivity function where Google Meet will turn off your screen if you are not tapping your phone or tablet every half second. Google, please get rid of this function when the user is not in low power mode. I normally give 4-star reviews for one issue applications but this issue is just so frustrating!
Edit: I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and it is still coming up with this issue. I will try to list the “symptoms” as accurately as I can.
1. When in a Meet, unless I am actively doing something (talking, typing quickly, or moving tiles) the screen goes black.
2. Sometimes when the screen comes back, it comes on brighter than before, then resets back to the original brightness.
3. I have to use the home button to get the screen back on, and when it does come back I noticed that if I tapped twice, it allowed to swipe through my current applications (meaning that the app was still OPEN but may have been in some sort of standby state).
4. My phone was not on low power mode this time, and I don’t have auto lock enabled.
First of all: I don't know why virtual backgrounds aren't available. Why are they not available?! Please bring them back!!!!
Second: I have a suggestion. If not for the virtual backgrounds you can do something like on zoom where you can have like different meeting room templates each with a different setup and a different theme and different customizable meeting options. Like for example you could have a classroom template, and in there it could have always the raise hand feature, polls, breakout rooms, moderator has control over chat messages and students' microphones, or you could have like a hangout chat room, where there's lots of virtual backgrounds, a more interactive chat, and the option to change the screen layout. And those are just examples, the options are endless!
Please make an update soon with the changes you've decided to make, and let me know!
This is so laggy and you get disconnected so much and there are a lot of major issues with this a couple is lagging, or not being able to hear the other person. I use this for classes and have been for a year and sometimes you can’t even turn your camera on and when you move around a lot like for pe it lagged and disconnected a whole class and it took so long to get back on and it does this every once and awhile it will also just disconnect only one person and when you get disconnected it looses your attendance and when you come back your teacher gets mad and thinks your late even though you get disconnected and it’s just so bad and I like zoom so much better
Keep in mind I’m a teacher.
This app is so bad that I couldn’t even meet with my students it takes 15-30 mins for me to load so I have to get on the meet really early, and if I get disconnected everyone has to leave so I can join, and finally I can’t present half the time I can’t present and when I do it’s really bratty and glitchy, my students can’t see most of the work I put out, and it was very annoying to get my students on the class it kept saying that the class didn’t exist even when I sign on my phone.
I don’t even know where to begin, all of the many flaws in google meet contribute to it being the inferior app when compared to zoom. First off you can never make the bottom bar disappear so you can never see the full video, there are many issues with joining rooms and using meet codes. It always disconnects me even with full bars of wifi, and there are many audio issues that come within the app, ranging from sometimes never being able to hear anything to everyone’s voice being distorted and unrecognizable.
1. Please at least add an option to use the old layout, this new one is badly organized and hard to navigate. The old one worked just fine and there wasn’t a reason to get rid of it.
2. Please fix the black screen glitch. It means that when I’m in a meeting, the screen blacks out for no reason.
3. The microphone listens even if you’re muted. I don’t know about you but this is kind of creepy. And I have to use this for school so it’s not like I can just stop using this.
Thank you for Reading
Google meet is something I have to use for school almost every day, and I have no problems with the service itself. Instead, my issue is with a bug that happens only when I join calls. The bug turns my screen black and unresponsive for an amount of time, and then my phone goes back to normal. It makes joining google meets on my phone basically impossible.
You’re better off using the web version on a computer or laptop until this is fixed.

Hi, I’m Brandon, I use this app to play with my friend. But today 2-28-21 I couldn’t hear him. We tried creating new meets but it didn’t work. This happend and we did the same thing. It worked. But now it isn’t working. I report this as a bug or glitch. Please fix this if you can. Thanks Brandon
