  • You can record a Google Meet video call to rewatch or share the meeting with others later.
  • The recording feature is usually only available for G-Suite Enterprise members, but is currently free for all G-Suite members until September 30, 2020.
  • You can only record a Google Meet call if you're its organizer, or if you're in the same organization as the person who created the meeting.
  • Once you're finished, the Google Meet recording will be saved to the organizer's Google Drive.

The ability to record Google Meet calls has many advantages. For example, a meeting recording can be shared later for use in training, to rehash the details of a project, or to take notes on what was discussed.

But not everyone can record a Google Meet call. Google Meet recordings can only be made by people within the same organization, by a meeting's organizer, or by a teacher using Google Meet as a classroom.
