This feature requires having the Admin quality dashboard access privilege.
Use the Meet quality tool to troubleshoot your organization’s Google Meet video meetings and identify the root cause of issues. For example, you can see an overview of meeting metrics, find and debug meetings, view network statistics (jitter, packet loss, and congestion), network connection delay (RTT), microphone level and received audio level, or view system (CPU) statistics.
Note: The Meet quality tool saves data for 30 days. For more information, see Data retention and lag times.
You must be signed in to an admin account with the appropriate privileges to access the Meet quality tool.
To access the tool from the Google Admin console, go to AppsGoogle WorkspaceGoogle Meet and click Meet quality tool. If you are already logged in, you can also search for a meeting code, organizer or participant in the search bar on any admin page.

Meeting, participant, and device statistics
|Duration||Average meeting time.|
|Meetings||Total number of meetings.|
|Participant connections||Total number of connection endpoints.|
|Device connections||Total number of Google meeting room hardware devices that joined meetings.|
|Network congestion||Percentage of time that network constraints prevented a device from sending higher-quality video.|
|Packet loss||Percentage of packets lost on the network. This includes packets sent from a client to Google and received by the client from Google.|
|Jitter||Variation in latency on packets flowing between a client and Google.|
|Feedback score||User rating submitted at the end of a meeting.|
To review statistics about an event:
- On the left, click Meetings view .
- From the list, click a meeting to view detailed meeting information including a timeline of events.
Meeting Information View
Information about the meeting. This includes the meeting code, date, status, start and end times, duration, and organizer’s email. If the meeting was recorded, the recording status also appears in this section.
If given or used, the average rating feedback from participants and information about live streaming appears in this section as well. Live stream views are counted anytime someone joins the meeting to watch. For example, a single user who joins and leaves multiple times has multiple views.
Note: When people connect from 3rd-party devices (interop gateways), their screen sharing feeds don't look like standard screen sharing feeds. They look like regular video feeds to other participants.
Meeting Participants View
List of meeting participants. For meetings that are in progress, details are updated during the meeting as they become available.
For large meetings, add a filter to locate specific participants. Each telephone endpoint for the same phone number is listed as a separate participant.
To view additional details, click a participant's name. The Meet quality tool captures the following information:
