Assign a calendar to a device

After you enroll a Google Meet hardware device, you can associate it with a room or personal calendar in Google Calendar. You can associate a room calendar with one device or a personal calendar with multiple devices. 

Note: When searching for a calendar resource, the search is case sensitive. 

If you wipe and re-enroll the device, you need to assign the calendar to the device again. If you only use a device for unscheduled meetings, you don’t need to assign a calendar to it.

Use calendars for video conferencing

For OUs using Meet hardware, Google Calendar must be ON for the device to access the calendar.

Associate each Meet hardware device with the calendar for a room or a specific user.

Whenever that room or user is added to a Google Calendar video meeting, the meeting name appears on the device screen at the designated time.

Other services Google Meet add-in for Microsoft Outlook Adds a video meeting name to Microsoft Outlook events. Participants join from Meet hardware by entering the video meeting name using the touchscreen or remote control.

Designate a device for a room or user

Google Calendar Description
Room calendar

If the Meet hardware device is installed in a conference room, associate the device with the room. When users create a Calendar event, they can add the room to the invitation to reserve the room. Unless it's a private meeting, the meeting name appears on the device screen at the designated time.

Personal calendar

If the device is for a single user, such as in a home office or other remote location, you can associate the device with their personal calendar. Whenever an organizer adds that user to a Calendar event, the meeting name appears on their device.

Personal calendars can be associated with multiple Meet hardware devices.

Note: When users are granted administrator access, it might take up to 24 hours before the user can access the Google Admin console. Users who can't access the Admin console after 24 hours should contact support.

Important: A service account, also called a robot account, is added when a calendar resource is assigned to a device. Addresses with the domain are the service accounts for Meet Hardware devices. Admins might not recognize these accounts and remove them from the ACLs. If this happens, the calendar won't display the calendar resource events. 

Assign a calendar

At the end of device enrollment, the screen displays a URL for the device’s page in the Admin console. If you need the URL later, go to Settings on your device. From a laptop or other device, copy the URL into a web browser. Or, follow these instructions.
