Can Google Meet Be Recorded?

Google Meet has a record feature that will let you record video meetings to watch later, provided the Workspace Administrator has not disabled it.

You need to be the meeting organizer or signed into an account belonging to the same organization as the organizer to start recording in Google Meet.

Once the recording has been started, it will start to document the voice (and live video feed) of all active speakers as well as anything presented on screen.

These people, per the Google Meet Support Forum, are notified when a recording starts or stops, but can’t control the recording:

  • People outside of your organization
  • Mobile app users
  • People who dial in using a phone

Recordings are saved to the organizer’s Google Drive. An email with the recording link is sent to the meeting organizer and the person who started the recording.

The link is also automatically added to the Calendar event.
