I am having issues with Google Meet.  How do I fix this?  Webcams and microphones are not REQUIRED to participate in a Google Meet with your teachers.  In fact, your teacher can turn off your webcam and mute your microphone during the Meet to improve the quality of the session.  Also, limit the number of tabs open during a live class Meet to only those necessary (Youtube, other streaming services, and generally more than 5 tabs disrupt the Meet Livestream).  Please use these directions for Troubleshooting Webcam and Google Meet Issues.
