To speak and listen using your phone while still viewing the video meeting on your computer, you can have Google Meet call your phone or dial in from your device.

If you're not already in the meeting, your computer joins when your phone connects. If there are more than 5 people already in the meeting, you will join muted. You also join muted if your computer is muted before connecting. 

This feature is not currently supported using Microsoft Internet Explorer 11. See supported browsers.

Examples

  • If you’re in a video meeting and the network connection is poor, you can dial in from your phone.
  • Use your phone for audio if your computer’s microphone and speaker aren’t working.
