To join a Google Meet without installing an app, you can follow these steps:

1. Open a web browser on your device and go to This will take you to the Google Meet homepage.

2. Once you are on the Google Meet homepage, you will see a box that says “Enter a code or link.” Click on this box to proceed.

3. Now, you will need to enter the meeting code or nickname. The meeting code is the string of letters at the end of the meeting link. You don’t have to enter the hyphens, just the letters. If you have been provided with a meeting nickname instead, enter that in the box.

4. After entering the meeting code or nickname, click on the “Continue” button.

5. Next, you will be prompted to join the meeting. Click on the “Join now” button to join the Google Meet session.

6. If this is your first time using Google Meet, the browser will ask for permission to access your camera and microphone. Grant the necessary permissions by clicking “Allow” when prompted.

It’s important to note that joining a Google Meet without installing the app may have some limitations in terms of features and functionality. For the best experience and access to all features, it is recommended to use the Google Meet app or desktop client.

Personally, I have found joining Google Meet without installing the app to be quite convenient when I need to quickly join a meeting on a device where I don’t have the app installed. It allows me to participate in the meeting without any hassle of downloading and installing additional software. However, I have noticed that some advanced features, such as screen sharing or breakout rooms, may not be available when joining through the web browser.

Joining a Google Meet without installing an app can be done by visiting the Google Meet website, entering the meeting code or nickname, and clicking “Join now.” This provides a convenient way to join meetings on devices without the app installed, though some features may be limited.
