Several pop ups may appear, take care to allow Google Meet to access the Microphone and Camera.

Please enter your full name in the 'What's your name?' section this is so your lecturer knows it is you.  Now click 'Ask to join':


The meeting will open once your lecturer allows you to enter.


Adjusting your audio setup

You may have a separate microphone/speaker plugged in (a headset or headphones) or built-in ones in your PC/headphones, or both.  

If you need to switch to use a different microphone or speaker, you can do so by moving your mouse so that the menu bar appears along the bottom of the screen, then clicking on the three dots to the right (More options), then on 'Settings':


You will then be able to select a different speaker or microphone, then click on 'Done' to confirm the changes:
