Removing the Meet tab in Gmail
With the Gmail app open, simply follow these steps as outlined:
- Tap the ≡ menu button
- Scroll to the bottom and select Settings
- Choose the desired user account (you can use different settings for each profile)
- Scroll down and uncheck “Show the Meet tab for video calling“
Once you have done so, the Gmail app will close and relaunch while featuring a larger viewing area to display your emails. Depending on the size of your device display, screen resolution, and display density, the app may display approximately one more email in place of the Google Meet shortcut.
Bonus: How to enable or disable the Google Chat tab
Following the same steps, you can also integrate Google Chat in the Gmail app. The option is labeled as “Show the Chat and Rooms tabs“. Unchecking the option disables the shortcut. So just in case Google displays the tab by default in the future, you know how to deactivate it already.
