While those who use the Google Meet platform quite frequently may feel that it is a welcome change to the UI, however, there may be others who feel no need for having a shortcut to a video conferencing tool through an app that they specifically use to check their emails.
For those who want to remove the ‘unwanted’ Meet tab, this is what they need to do:
Tap on the three-line “hamburger” icon in the upper left corner
Tap on Settings
Choose the Gmail account you wish to remove ‘Meet’ shortcut from
Uncheck “Show the Meet tab for video calling.”
Now when you go back to your Gmail inbox you will see that you have old inbox UI back without the Google Meet integration.
You can also enable the same again by following the aforementioned steps.
