Google Meet now natively supports viewing 49 participants.   This is important because we currently use the Google Grid View (fixed) extension, which you can continue to still use. But, if the extension quits working, you now have native support for viewing up to 49 participants.

  • Google Meet now natively supports a tiled view of 49 users (7x7).
  • If you want to use this instead of the Google View Grid extension, click on the View extension icon so that it has a line through it, disabling it. 
  • Go to settings (bottom right) > change layout > choose the tiled layout and slide the user count up to 49
