Completely Free and your Data is Private. Google Classroom integration, Slider Control, Nicknames, Help tutorials
Welcome to Google Meet Breakout Rooms Extension
***** Only the teacher needs to install this extension *****
The Google Meet Breakout Rooms Extension has 4 key features:
1) See All Students: The teacher can always see ALL of the students in ALL of the breakout rooms.
2）Free: The extension is completely free to use. I am a software engineer and created this for my personal use as a teacher and then improved it for all teachers to use. I make no money off of this extension, there are no ads, and no data is shared with me or any third parties.
3) Private: Your breakout rooms data is privately stored in your personal computer's chrome browser. Your breakout rooms data is NOT shared with anyone and it is NOT stored on a server. Even the creator of this extension has no knowledge of any of your data.
4) Hassle-free: ONLY the teacher needs to install the extension. Please do not ask your students to install this extension because it is unnecessary and potentially confusing for the students.

*** 中文版的說明操作影片 (version 17.3)：https://youtu.be/5oGmIL3pmP4
*** 我製作了影片版本（version 17.3) 後，發現了 Grid Meet (fix) 好像有問題，所以我不建議下載它，要不然能用google meet 本身的功能。用google meet 原本的功能，在設定，變更版面配置，選並排，拉到49人
*** You do not need the extension Grid Meet (fix) anymore. You can use the normal google meet settings for tiled and move the slider all the way to the right to 49 participants. This is in the Meet on the bottom right hand side (...) choose layout then Tiled.
*** Low Memory (RAM) Option explained in detail https://youtu.be/tKkSSghEyuo
*** If you like the extension, please give the extension a positive rating in the Chrome Store. This extension is completely free and if you find it useful then you may reward me by giving me an honest five star rating. I greatly appreciate it! If you experience any problems please watch my numerous online tutorials and help videos on my Youtube channel Hudek Tech, or send me an email and ask me for help. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I read all my emails.
*** To copy your data from one computer to another you can use the export/import function within the extension Courses tab and click on the far right hand black button. None of your data is sent to the developer or any third party.
*** In the Low Memory (RAM) Option, you can run an unlimited number of breakouts on a very small computer, such as a Chromebook. Using this option, only one breakout room is displayed at a time and you can use the slider to move between the rooms. However, in this low memory option there are a few things that are not available because only one room is displayed at a time: ability to broadcast , record all the breakouts, and some automation features to close all rooms in one click. But in return, you will be able to run an unlimited number of breakout rooms on a very small computer. There is extensive help documentation on this feature inside the extension itself by clicking on the red Help for this checkbox feature.
*** I have online help within the extension. Please click on the "?" and you will see a list of how-to's and each has its own associated instructional video
*** I also have online version release notes. Please click on the "here" link in the Meet tab headline message which identifies the current version. The release notes are the easiest and quickest way to learn about new features, known issues, and workarounds if available.
*** Please make sure on your settings for Google Meet in the bottom right hand side "...." you select Change Layout/Tiled. This is different from my Tabs/Tiled display format of windows in my extension. Please set the Change Layout to Tiled within Google Meet (bottom right hand side ...)
*** This extension is owned and developed by Robert Hudek. This extension is independent from Google and is not owned by or part of Google or Google Meet. This extension is designed to enhance and extend the functionality of Google Meet.
*** If you find a problem please do not give up on this app. Please inform me at email@example.com if you find any issues and I will try my best to reply as soon as I can. It is always helpful if you include a screenshot or detailed description of your scenario so I can more quickly diagnose the issue (for example, if you are using Google Classroom, what steps you took, what were your Rooms, etc. What did you see on the screen, where did things go wrong, etc). Thank you.
