Control video conferencing for Calendar events

By default, a video conference link is automatically added to all new Google Calendar events. As a G Suite administrator, you can turn this off. Users can still manually add a video conference to an event.

You can also control which conferencing add-ons are used with Calendar.

Control which conferencing add-ons are used

You can control the conferencing add-ons your users can install.

Users can install or uninstall the desired conferencing using the G Suite Marketplace.

Turn Google Meet on or off and manage settings

You can also manage your domain’s Meet video conferencing settings, including service availability.

Add only one video conference to an event

Users can only attach a single conference to the conferencing field of a Calendar event. This can be either Meet or an installed conferencing add-on.

Using methods other than the conferencing field to attach conferencing details, such as inserting conference details directly into location fields, event descriptions, or using browser extensions, may associate more than one video conference to a single event. Users can view and remove browser extensions at chrome://extensions.
