Turn live streaming on or off for Meet
This feature is available with the G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Enterprise for Education editions. For details, see Compare G Suite editions.
As a G Suite administrator, you can turn on live streaming to allow up to 100,000 people to watch a Hangouts Meet video meeting. When live streaming is added to an event, users get a stream URL that they can send to view-only participants.
For example, you might have a new product launch. Your users could send the stream URL to potential customers. Or, you might want to stream a presentation for the parents at your school.
