Google has started rolling out Meet integration on Gmail for Android. iPhone users received this feature last week. Gmail users on Android will now see a dedicated Google Meet tab on the app.

Google announced it would be bringing Meet on Gmail last month. This is part of Google’s aggressive push to make its video conferencing platform more accessible to users. Google Meet which was previously exclusive to G Suite users is now available to everyone with a Gmail account. The Google Meet integration on Gmail will be visible first to G Suite customers.

The new feature is very evident so users will most likely not miss it. There’s a new bottom tab on the Gmail app which has ‘Mail’ on the left side and ‘Meet’ on the right. Tapping on Meet opens up a new page where users can start a new meeting or join a new meeting. This feature is turned on by default so whenever it arrives, users will see it.

There is an option to remove it on Gmail. Click on the hamburger button, open settings for your G Suite account and toggle off the Meet option from the list. Your Gmail will go back to looking normal after this.

Google has started rolling out this Meet shortcut for the Gmail app. It’s a gradual rollout which Google says will take up to 15 days for all users to see it. The Google Meet integration is rolling out to personal users on Gmail as well. On iOS, so far only G Suite users have received the Meet integration.
