What is Meet Mute?

'Meet Mute' is a Chrome extension designed to provide an efficient way to control your microphone during Google Meet sessions. It provides you the options to set global keyboard shortcuts to mute and unmute effortlessly. The extension's icon changes color (green for unmuted, red for muted) to indicate your mic's current status. You can also control this feature by clicking on the extension's icon. Keyboard shortcuts can be customized through the extension's settings in the Chrome menu.
