How to remove the Google Meet tab in Gmail for Android


Google has decided to start bringing Google Meet (as well as Google Chat) in the Gmail app for Android and iOS. This was after Google decided that people wanted more apps, now they are putting them all in the same app.

But we all already know that Google has no idea what it wants to do with messaging and video chat apps, and that’s a talk another day.

What we want to look into today is how to get rid of that Google Meet tab that now appears at the bottom of the Gmail app for Android. It also appears on iOS and on the left side of the Gmail web app. Google’s idea here was to make it easier to start a meeting. Since we already spend a lot of time in our email, it was a logical place to put it. But it takes up a lot of space on the Gmail app and most of us don’t need it. So here’s how you can get rid of it.

How to get rid of the Google Meet tab in Gmail for Android

Open the Gmail app on your Android device.

Now open the file hamburger menu on the left side of the device.

From there, scroll down to the file settingsand touch it.

Next, you will choose the file email account you want to remove the Meet tab from.

Now scroll down to the “Chat & Meet” part of the settings. (Note: In the screenshot below, it only shows “Meet” because it’s not a G Suite account, in G Suite accounts you should see “Chat & Meet”).

The first option will say “Show Meet Tab for Video Calls”. Uncheck it.

And this is all. Now that Meet tab will no longer be available. It makes more sense to keep it in the web app, as that’s where you’ll most likely be doing most of your video chats anyway.
