Do you want to resolve Google Classroom Stream Disappeared issue? Recently, many users have reported about their Google Classroom posts disappearing off the stream. The Google Classroom stream is the web app’s alerts board, where teachers post information about the discussions, assignments, and notices.

However, the stream is very important. The stream keeps students updated on current developments in their classes. Recently the stream looks to be disappearing for some users. Well, here is a list of possible solutions for you to try if you are also facing the same issue.

Activate Inspect menu

One possible fix that looks to have worked for some users is to enable the ‘Inspect’ menu on the webpage. Usually, the Inspect function is used to read the web page’s written code. But in this instance, it looks to bring back the Google Classroom stream.

Move to the Classroom where the stream has vanished. Also, right-tap a blank part of the stream. You simply view a drop-down menu that seems under your pointer. Tap the ‘Inspect’ choice.

Tapping ‘Inspect’ will open a panel using the webpage’s code to the right side of the screen. Also, it forces your stream to reappear. Now you can close the code panel by tapping the Close button located in the top right corner of the panel.

Maximizing the window or restore down

If the method mentioned above can’t work. Then you must provide this one a try. This method looks to work for a number of users. Also, it’s not a permanent solution, it does look to bring back the stream for a while.

Also, if your browser’s window can’t maximize, then just maximize it. The modification in the window size will draw the full screen and you might be able to view the stream again.

Also, if your browser’s window is already maximized, then tap the restore down button located between the minimize and close button just to make it a regular-size window. Also, it will redraw the screen elements which shall bring back the stream.

Activate the comment box

Lots number of users found this one helpful. If your stream has vanished, tap on the comment box and initiate typing something.

You don’t want to post it.  Now move down the page. Hopefully, you should view your stream appear. You can also remove whatever you wrote in the comment box.

Many users swear by this temporary solution. If it again disappears, just try to input a new post and scrolling. You simply move down the page, for the solution to work. Just initiating a new post will not do the trick!

Modify the display mode

You can also modify the way your Classroom stream appears to display a condensed version of posts or all the information of each post. Also, you can hide all alerts from your stream. Modifying display mode worked as a temporary solution to get back a disappeared Classroom stream.

If you want to modify the display mode, head over to the Classroom where the stream has disappeared. Also, tap on the gear icon located in the top right corner of the screen.

Also, it’ll open up your class settings. Move down to ‘Classwork on the stream’ located under the ‘General’ tab. Then modify the mode to something else (rather than ‘Hide notifications’).

For example, if the chosen mode is set to ‘Display attachments and details’ then modify it to ‘Show condensed notifications’ and vice versa.

Press ‘Save’ located at the top right corner. Also, and you should view your stream return. You can move back and modify the setting to what you like to keep it at.

Use the mobile app

The Google Classroom mobile application can’t look to be affected by this issue. Users report that they clearly view their disappeared stream once they login using the mobile application.

So until Google shares out an official fix, you simply use the Google Classroom Android application to view and post to your stream.

Download Google Classroom: Android | iOS

What seems to be the issue?

The user Stream’s disappearing problem looks to be an error on Google’s end. The problem looks to occur if the first ten posts on the stream are all classwork items. Also, it includes supplements, assignments, or questions.

If you want to report the problem, move to your Google Classroom, and tap the question mark under the left corner of the screen. Choose the ‘Report problem or request feature’ choice. Now you can share your issue with a screenshot to Google.

Is the stream deleted?

No, the stream posts are not removed. Also, it is understandable that users are anxious all their posts have been removed, the truth is that they are just hidden. Using the above solution, simply try to get the stream back, or just log in to the Google Classroom Android application to see your stream.

Also, Google said that it is aware of the problem and is working on a solution. As of now, there is no official solution to the problem of disappearing Streams in Google Classrooms. Also, I hope some of these solutions worked for you.
