Easy muting/unmuting for when you're in a Google Meet.
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.
Easily mute and unmute your Google Meet tabs!
With this extension, you can:
- Set global keyboard shortcuts to toggle muting from anywhere
- See if you are currently muted from the app's icon
- Toggle muting by clicking the app's icon
- When the app's icon is tri-colored, there is no active Google Meet session.
- When the app's icon is green colored, the microphone is currently unmuted.
- When the app's icon is red colored, the microphone is currently muted.
To set the keyboard shortcuts, right click the app icon -> Manage Extensions. From there, click the hamburger menu -> Keyboard shortcuts. Here you can set keyboard shortcuts for any extension. You can also specify Chrome (when Chrome is in focus) or Global (when any window is in focus).
