Who can view live stream video meetings
Only guests within your organization can view a live stream from your organization. Full participants within your organization can stop and start the stream during the meeting, and record the event. View-only guests can't participate in the meeting or control streaming and recording. The maximum number of live-stream viewers depends on your account and Google Workspace edition.
