Add people to a video meeting

Want to get more out of Google apps at work or school?  Sign up for a free G Suite trial

In Hangouts Meet, you can add people to a video meeting before or after a meeting starts. Guests can be inside or outside of your organization.

People inside your organization can always join as long as they’re signed in to their G Suite account (such as their Gmail account at work or school).

Someone from your organization must grant access to external guests when they try to join, unless the external Google Accounts are added to a Calendar event or they’re invited during a video meeting.
