The easiest way to use filters in Google Meet.
Google Meet is a cool app for hosting video meetings. You can use it for free with just a Google account, and it’s safe. There’s no need to even download additional software – all you need is your browser. No wonder holding video meetings is so popular, especially lately.
But with all the extraordinary features also comes a bitter truth. It still runs behind its competitors in terms of all the features they offer and has a lot to do. There’s no inherent support for virtual backgrounds, although it’s a work in progress right now. But thanks to Zoom, people are now also experiencing a major FOMO in another area – Video filters.
We are the Snapchat generation who love face filters. So of course we want them to be at the video meeting. I don’t criticize; I myself like a good filter. But the fact is that Google Meet doesn’t have this feature. So does that mean you can’t use filters in meetings in Google Meet, and the only way out is to switch to some other app that has them? Absolutely not! One of the best advantages of using Google Meet are all Chrome extensions, and there’s one for this situation too.
Install Filters for Google Meet Extensions
Filters for Google Meet is a Chrome extension that you need to install to use filters in video meet on Google Meet. Open the Chrome Web Store and search for ‘Filter For Google Meet’. Or click the button below to zoom there (pun).

Use Filters for Google Meet
After you install the extension, it will be ready to use in Google Meet. No additional configuration is required.

Select the filter you wish to apply from the available options, then click the ‘Close’ button to close the filter toolbar, and return to the meeting screen.
The filter you selected will be applied to your video, and everyone in the meeting will only see your filtered video feed.
