    If for some reason, you want to connect with your students via Google Meet for your online classes on Chesslang Classroom, the “picture-in-picture” (PIP) mode can be useful.

    What is “picture-in-picture” (PIP) mode?

    Step-3: Before starting your class, go to the Google Meet, click on the options icon, and then select “Open picture-in-picture
