Meet introduced to Gmail without a dedicated app

Today, Google is taking another step toward integrating Meet with Gmail, which will bring visual conferencing services directly to iOS and Android Gmail,media reported. Gmail mobile users don’t need a dedicated Google Meet app to attend meetings, and Google decided to add a separate large label at the bottom of Gmail’s main interface. If you don’t want Meet to appear as a tab, you must turn off Meet integration in the Settings menu.

Google opened Google Meet free of charge to everyone at the end of April, and since then the company hasn’t wasted any time integrating the service into Gmail. Over the next few weeks, Gmail iOS and Android users will discover new Meet tags to quickly join the meeting.
