Other Google Meet layouts

For many users, the grid layout works well to create a more realistic meeting. Unfortunately, the grid view can turn into noise when it reaches 49 people making it less effective. There’s not much that you can do to counter this but, it’s a good idea to explore the other layouts that are available and check if they work better for you.

The other Google Meet layouts can be accessed from the Change Layout menu. These layout are;

  • Auto: Google Meet will adjust the layout based on the number of people in the meeting.
  • Spotlight: the speaker is highlighted and no one else is shown.
  • Sidebar: Meeting participants appear as thumbnails in a side bar.

Note: if you choose to pin yourself or another speaker in a meeting, it may impact the grid or whichever layout it is you’re using.
