To help limit distractions in your meeting, you can filter out background noise. Meet can remove background noises such as typing, closing a door, room echo or the sounds of a nearby construction site.
- Audio capture from screen sharing won't be affected by noise cancellation.
- Meet filters out noises that don't sound like voices. Voices from TV or people talking at the same time won't be filtered out.
- If non-speech is an important part of your meeting, like playing musical instruments, turn off noise cancellation.
- Meet adjusts the audio so that everyone is heard at a comfortable volume.
Learn how to turn noise cancellation on or off before or during a video call.
Recordings include the active speaker and anything presented. You can also choose to record the meeting's captions. Recordings are saved to the organiser's Meet recordings folder in My Drive. An email with the recording link is sent to the meeting organiser and the person who started the recording. The link is added to the calendar event.
Other windows or notifications are not included in the recording. Pinning a participant won't affect who is shown in the recording.
These people are notified when a recording starts or stops but can't control the recording:
- People outside of your organisation
- Mobile app users
- People who dial in using a phone
