Google Meet team, what were you thinking?
‘Ctrl+D’ as the key combo to mute/unmute your microphone? 😮
(It’s also the combo for ‘Add Bookmark’, and depending on browser context Meet doesn’t always manage to trap the input. And it’s clunky.)
I missed having a push-to-talk key, so I added my own. 🎆📻
Now in my video calls, I just hold down space to un-mute the mic, and let go to re-mute. Much better.
(and it should work for any language, and not interfere with any existing Meet functionality including chat)
