Have you encountered Google Meet Grid View not working during a video conference? Are you searching methods to solve this problem? In this post, MiniTool Partition Wizard offers you 3 solutions.

Google Meet is a video conference program which allows users to hold online meeting and classes. Sometimes, users may need to get the grid view during a video conference, and a simple Google Chrome extension by Chris Gamble had helped solve this issue. That is, Google Meet Grid View.

This extension adds a button to the top right bar (next to chat & participant list) to enable grid-view in Google Meets. Grid view gives every participant an equal sized video for use in meetings without a primary speaker (such as working from home silent meetings).

It also includes a variety of options to enhance your meeting: include your own video, highlight who is speaking, and hide participants without video! However, this extension forcibly loads every participant’s video when grid view is enabled and may cause performance issues in extremely large meetings.
