- By selecting “Audio only”, you will not see anyone on camera.
Additional Troubleshooting Tips
If you are still running into issues, try some of these tips:
- Make sure you only have one Meet tab open at a time. Close any open browser tabs, windows, or apps that aren’t currently being used.
- Turn off any Chrome extensions, especially Meet-specific ones.
- Put your device on a flat and elevated surface to prevent your device from overheating. Avoid using your device on the floor or bed for a long period of time.
- Change your Meet layout to Spotlight view.
