Welcome to the Google Meet support community.
Make sure you are not using any chrome extensions that might interfere with Meet.

Hi Alex,
At first, I’m using snap camera change the background. Since I realize google meet has such function to replace the background, so I decided to uninstall snap camera to use google meet. However, I got the error when I choose the background. I’ve checked there is no any extension to interfere this.

Same issue here; nothing has ever been interfering with it in any way until this last week. Between the days it worked and the day it stopped, nothing anywhere was changed--not even a browser or local program update. It's obviously Google, not us.

Same here. The background sometimes able to change but most of the time cannot. Which extension should I stop using in order for the background change to work? How do I know that the extension interferes? The problem was not mentioned in specific, where or what caused it.

Same here and I teach 4th grade virtually. It's SO annoying that we can't get this to work or it only works sometimes. If I turn off and on my hardware acceleration and relauch Chrome, SOMETIMES I can get it to work but not at all this week and nothing has changed. I've tried turning off all extensions and nothing works. Please fix this issue Google!!!!!

Sincerely,
A Very Frustrated Teacher

I have no extensions for it to interfere with it could it possibly be that my teacher is not on or something because my class started at 9:15 and I'm still not able to get on my class!!!!!!!!
