1. Schedule Meetings in Google Calendar: 

   – Use Google Calendar to schedule and send meeting invitations. It integrates seamlessly with Google Meet, making it easy to set up and share meeting links. 

2. Test Your Equipment: 

   – Before your meeting, ensure that your camera, microphone, and speakers are working correctly. This minimizes technical issues during the call. 

3. Enable Grid View: 

   – Enable grid view to see all meeting participants at once. This helps maintain a sense of connection and engagement during the meeting. 

4. Mute When Not Speaking: 

   – To reduce background noise and interruptions, mute your microphone when you’re not speaking. You can use the spacebar as a push-to-talk button. 

5. Use Keyboard Shortcuts: 

   – Google Meet has several keyboard shortcuts for functions like muting, turning your camera on/off, and more. Familiarize yourself with these shortcuts for efficiency.
