You can record video meetings for later viewing if an administrator has enabled recording. If you’re the meeting organizer or work for the same company as the organizer, you can record.

When in into their Google Workspace account, teachers can record (such as Gmail). Students can record the meeting if the teacher is the one who organized it.
Tip: It’s always a good idea to notify other meeting participants before you start recording.

When you record a video meeting:

  • The active speaker and anything that is presented is included in the recording. There are no further windows or alerts included. Pinning a participant has no impact on who appears in the tape.
  • The organizer’s Meet Recordings folder on My Drive is where the recordings are saved. The meeting organizer and the person who started the recording receive an email with the recording link. In addition, the link is added to the Calendar event.
  • People outside of your organization, mobile app users, and phone callers are told when the recording begins and ends, but they have no control over the recording.
  • If a participant uses live captions while recording, the captions will not be recorded and will not appear when the recording is played back.

Recordings are useful for:

  • Team presentations that you want to share after meetings are a good use for recordings.
  • Providing on-demand training materials to students and new employees.
  • Conferences and events that individuals are unable to attend in person.

Start and stop a recording” Only the computer version of Meet allows you to record. Users of the mobile app are notified when the recording begins or ends, but they have no control over the recording.

If you join only to present, such as from a laptop while already in a video conference room, you won’t be able to record. Join the video meeting first, then begin presenting before recording.

You can only use this feature if your company allows it. Contact your administrator for assistance.
