Turn recording on or off

Meeting organizers and participants within the same organization can record video meetings. As a G Suite administrator, you can turn recording on or off.

Recordings of meetings save to the organizer's Google Drive. People in other domains can’t control the recording process, but they see a message when the recording stops or starts.

Before you begin, make sure that Drive is turned on.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Appsand thenG Suiteand thenGoogle Hangouts.
  3. Click Meet settings.
  4. Select the desired organizational unit.  
    Otherwise, your settings apply to your entire organization.
  5. Next to Recording, check or uncheck the Let people record their meetings box.
