Set up Google Meet global dialing

Currently available to customers based in the U.S., Canada, UK, France, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Austria, and Belgium.

As a super admin for your organization, you can set up a Google Meet global dialing subscription to allow paid dial-in and dial-out calls in video meetings. Users in your organization can add someone by phone from any country. Participants can also dial in from an expanded list of supported countries.

There is no subscription fee. You are only charged a per-minute rate for phone calls.

Note: The Meet global dialing subscription is not required for calls to the U.S. and Canada or for Meet dial-in numbers with no per-minute-rate cost. 

Use Google Voice with Meet

If you're managing call settings for Meet, you may also want to try Google Voice for your cloud phone systems. For more information, go to Manage Google Voice in the Admin console.

Before you begin

  • For information about your charges and dialing rates, read How Meet global dialing billing works.
  • For a complete list of supported countries, read Countries where you can use a phone with Meet.
  • If you're using Google Meet hardware, make sure the Call phones setting is turned on in the Google Admin console. For more information, see Change settings for all devices
