Google Assistant

Let users access G Suite with the Google Assistant

As an administrator, you control whether people in your organization can access Google G Suite services, such as Calendar, Meet and Gmail, with the Google Assistant. Using the Assistant is especially helpful for people who need to perform work-related tasks on the go or while working from home.

For example, the Assistant can now respond to the following questions and commands:

  • What's on my schedule today?
  • Where's my next meeting?
  • What's my first meeting tomorrow?
  • Dial into my current meeting
  • Cancel my meeting
  • Reschedule my meeting
  • Tell my next meeting I’m running late
  • Call [contact name]
  • Send an SMS / email to [contact name]

Users can also seamlessly join Meet calls by asking the Assistant to perform the following tasks on the Nest Hub Max:

  • Say “OK, Google, join my meeting”
  • Start a new meeting
  • Join a Meet call using a meeting code

About access to G Suite

Access to G Suite is provided as part of G Suite with the Google Assistant Beta program.

Note: Resetting a user’s password might not automatically revoke their access to G Suite services from all Google Assistant devices, like Google Home. Learn how to remove access.
