Step 1: Connect USB cable
To get started, you need to connect the Google Meet hardware speakermic to a Chromebox. You can connect multiple speakermics together, if needed.
Connect one speakermic
- Under the speakermic, insert the USB cable into the micro-USB port.
- Connect the USB cable to the Chromebox.
- Wait for the lights on the speakermic to turn white.
- In Google Meet, click Settings and make sure the Meet speakermic is selected.
The speakermic is now ready to use with Google Meet.
Connect multiple speakermics
- Connect one speakermic to a power outlet using the power adapter.
- On one speakermic, in the Next network port, insert the network cable.
- On a second speakermic, in the Previous network port, insert the other end of the cable. Up to 5 speakermics can be connected this way.
For the best audio quality, we recommend that speakermics be less than 4.9 feet (1.5 m) away from each meeting participant and less than 6.5 feet (2 m) away from each additional speakermic.
- On one of the speakermics, in the micro-USB port, insert the USB cable and connect it to the Chromebox.
- Wait for the lights on each speakermic to turn white.
- In Google Meet, click Settings and make sure theh Meet speakermic is selected.
The devices are now ready to use with Google Meet.
Note: If the Google Meet speakermic firmware is out of date, an automatic update might start when the device is connected. If so, you’ll see the yellow lights flashing. You should allow up to 2 minutes for the update to finish.
