If you use an Android phone, Google Meet is the perfect app for attending video conferences. Google’s video meeting platform is perfectly optimized for Android and you can use it even when you’re not at the office. Well, sometimes Google Meet may fail to work as it should. In this guide, we’ll explore how you can fix some of the most common Meet issues on Android.

How to Fix Google Meet Issues on Android Phone

Update Google Meet, Chrome, Gmail, and Android OS

If you use Meet directly from Chrome, update your web browser. The same is valid if you use the tool directly from your Gmail app. Make sure all your Google apps are up-to-date. Launch the Google Play App, search for Chrome and Gmail, and hit the Update button.

Don’t forget to update your Android version as well. The latest OS versions always pack important system improvements and bug fixes for known glitches. Navigate to Settings, select System, go to System Updates and check for updates.

After you apply the updates, restart your phone and check if the issue is gone.
