We’re using Google Meet at work at the moment. Apart from the logo, which looks indistinguishable from most of the other services of Google Suite, it works pretty well. However, there is one annoying thing it does have.

Like most chat apps, Google Meet has an integrated chat feature, which allows participants to post messages during the meeting. However, once the meeting is finished, the chat disappears, and all the messages (as far as I know) are lost.

It would be nice if these chats were kept around at the end of the meeting so that anything that needs to be referenced later can be copied or otherwise noted. It’s not always possible to do this during the meeting — people are usually listening or presenting — so being able to do this afterwards would help here.
