Issues related to the Grid View Extension from Chris Gamble
There’s been a issue with layouts in the brand new Grid View extension over the last couple of days. The screen only shows your video, none of the other participants’ views. The tiled display. It’s not functioning when the extension is turned on and you’re only able to see the people who are in a sidebar view. No regardless of the number of times that you’ve removed and installed the extension again, it’s still not working. It’s frustrating, however we’d suggest patience. It can happen at times.
A compatibility issue between the latest version of Google Meet and the extension may be the cause of the issue. Give it a couple of days to ensure that the developer can fix the problems related to their extension.
If the meeting is less than 16 participants, you can use the Google Meeting’s tiled views instead of using the extension, as it can support the 4×4 grid for meetings currently. Google is also revealed that it will be offering the ability to view up to 49 people in a conference at the same time within Google Meet which means that it is likely that your dependence on third-party extensions to view a large number of meetings will be drastically reduced.
