How to Enable Google Meet Picture in Picture Mode?

Google meet does not have a picture in picture mode for videos of participants sharing their screen. You can enable in with the Chromane browser plugin.

Step 1: Install the Chromane chrome extension

Chromane is a chrome extension that I have created. You can install it by clicking the green button below. It is a container for custom tools like the "Video Streams" tool which will allow you to view video streams from the google meet .


Step 2: Activate the installed plugin

The extension does not require any permissions when you install it. You need to go to your google meet call and activate the plugin by clicking the browser extension icon, as you can see in the video above.

Step 3: Find and open the tool

After clicking the browser action - you should see a popup. Type in "video streams" in the search bar of the popup and click on the result as seen in the video above. The extension will automatically detect all visible video streams on the page and then forward them inside of the popup. From there you can click the "picture-in-picture" button to display the video stream in picture-in-picture mode.
