Grid view isn’t just for Zoom. Google Meet has made it easier than ever to view every participant in a meeting at once with their similar tiled layout feature.
Part of an April 2020 rollout of highly-requested Google Meet upgrades, this tool expanded the visible number of participants on-screen simultaneously from four to 16 people. According to one Google support page, Tiled view can now accommodate up to 49 people at once. Before the update, users could access what used to be called “Grid view” through the Chrome extension “Google Meet Grid View.”
Tiled view is one of a handful of other layout options Google has available for Google Meet users, including Auto, Spotlight, and Sidebar. Choosing a tiled layout might be useful for very large virtual meet-ups or those who prefer that the screen not change as speakers take turns. With a tiled layout, everyone in the meeting (up to 49 people) stays visible in one place.
Here’s how to get a grid view in Google Meet.
