Google Meet End Call For All/Quick Access Fix

Google has introduced a feature which allows the host to "End call for all". This means, as the host, you can now make sure that once you leave, no one else can stay in the Meet. However, choosing the end call for all option will turn also turn off your "Quick Access" settings. 

"Quick Access" is a host control that allows you to toggle a button on and off for "Quick Access" to the Meet, which means participants will be able to join automatically without requesting, or they will have to request to join even if they are using their email and the meeting host will have to manually admit participants one by one. The Quick Access panel also allows you to either allow or not allow everyone in the Meet to be able to share their screen or write in the chat but toggling the button on and off.

If you encounter this issue or would like further assistance with turning Quick Access features on and off please follow these steps.
