How to record calls in Google Meet?

3 min read


Recording Google Meet sessions is valuable for several reasons. It allows participants to review discussions and presentations at their convenience, ensuring that no important information is missed. Recordings are also beneficial for those unable to attend the meeting in real-time, providing them with the opportunity to catch up later. Additionally, having a recorded archive supports transparency and accountability in collaborative projects.

You need to perform several simple steps to record Google Meet. After you've joined a meeting, click the vertical ellipsis and select Manage recording.

It is important to note that different countries have different legislations. But it is a good practice to ask for permission to record a meeting. Something else to have in mind is that only hosts and organization administrators can record meetings, and the organization's settings must allow for recordings to be made.  To finish the recording, you may click Stop recording or simply end the meeting. The recording will be automatically stored in your Google Drive, and you will be sent an email with a link to it.
