As explained by Google:
“In the coming weeks, you’ll notice a new ‘Meet’ tab on your phone’s Gmail app where you can see upcoming meetings scheduled in Google Calendar, and easily join them with a single tap.”
The Meet tab will help to highlight the option to more potential users via Gmail.
You’ll also be able to schedule your own Google Meet video catch-ups in the Gmail app:
“In the Meet tab, tap on “New meeting” to start a meeting instantly, get a meeting link to share, or to schedule a meeting in Calendar. If you tap on “Join with a code,” you can join meetings shared with you by entering a meeting code.”
If you’d prefer not to see Meet as a tab in your Gmail app, you can uncheck the option in your app settings. Google has also put together an overview of how to use Meet from Gmail here.
