πŸŽ‰ Alert Me for Google Meet

A Chrome Extension that notifies people when certain words are being spoken in a Google Meet Meeting opened in Chrome browser. You can set the alert words yourself with your name or any word you want to be notified for. Use it to your own advantage.

This doesn't recognize the voice in the meeting by itself, that's done by Google when you turn your captions on, so if it doesn't work as shown here, try checking if your voice is recognized by Google.

Motivation (User Story)

This is a pet project I made to know how Chrome extensions work (which proved to be very valuable πŸ˜…). You can use it at your own risk, as if you get caught while slacking off at work meetings, I won't be held responsible.

Instructions

It's pretty simple, feel free to follow below steps if you get stuck:

  • Join a Google Meet call
  • Add/remove alert words through the popup
  • Make sure toΒ Turn on your captionsΒ for extension to know when words are spoken
  • You'll get a notification when someone speaks your alert words

This extension isn't live on Chrome Web store yet (coz my card isn't accepted by it for paying of the registration amount). So you can download latest release from GitHub itself. Follow the README.
