When you use Gmail in a Web browser on your computer you are accustomed to seeing things a certain way.
Depending on your settings this could include a general inbox, or several different tabs where Gmail classifies certain types of emails.
But you may have noticed recently that there is a “Meet” section at the bottom of the left column.
This section is meant to provide quick access to Google’s Meet feature so that you can start and join meetings directly from your inbox.
If you aren’t using this feature, however, then you might find it to be in the way and you would prefer to get rid of it.
Our guide below will show you how to stop displaying the Meet section in Gmail.
