Enhanced features for Google Meet video calls

Longer meeting length

Google One Premium plan members can host group calls with up to 100 participants for up to 24 hours. One-on-one calls up to 24 hours continue to be available for all users using a personal account.

Learn more about system requirements for Google Meet video calls.

Background noise cancellation

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 everyone is heard at a comfortable volume.

Learn how to turn noise cancellation on or off before or during a video call.

Video call recordings

Recordings include the active speaker and anything that’s presented. Recordings are saved to the organizer’s Meet Recordings folder in My Drive. An email with the recording link is sent to the meeting organizer and the person who started the recording. The link is added to the Calendar event.

Other windows or notifications are not included. Pinning a participant won’t affect who is shown in the recording.

These people get notified when a recording starts or stops, but can’t control the recording:

  • People outside of your organization
  • Mobile app users
  • People who dial in using a phone

If a participant turns on live captions during recording, the captions won't be recorded and don't open when you play the recording.

Live stream from Google Meet to Youtube
You can use Google Meet to Live stream a meeting publicly to YouTube. 

Prerequisites to use this feature

To Live stream:

  • Your YouTube channel must be approved for Live streaming in advance. It can take up to 24 hours to get approval. Learn how to get started with Live streaming
  • This feature needs your YouTube channel to be connected to an ongoing meeting. The participant whose YouTube channel gets connected is the one who initiates the Live stream from within Meet.
    • If host management is off: Anyone in the hosts’ organization can initiate a Live stream.
    • If host management is on: Only the hosts and co-hosts can initiate a Live stream.
    Tip: For a seamless experience, it is recommended that you promote the participant to a co-host who wants to initiate a Live stream.
  • For the Live stream initiator:
    • Dial into a meeting with the same email address used to create the YouTube channel you want to stream to. We recommend you use the same email address because an email address can be linked to multiple YouTube channels. Meet currently doesn’t support a channel picker for streaming.
    • Dial into a meeting from a laptop or desktop device, since initiating a Live stream via a mobile device is currently not possible.
  • Unless you are a Workspace Individual or a Google One Premium Subscriber, your Workspace admin needs to turn this feature on for your organization before you can use it. Learn how to turn live streaming to YouTube on or off.

Why don’t I see premium features in my Google Meet?

With 2 TB or higher premium plans Google One members and their family group can use Google Workspace premium features.

If you're eligible for Google Workspace premium features but still can’t find them, make sure you’re signed into the correct account. Otherwise, contact Google One support.

I own a domain Google Account. What happens if I change my Google One membership to a Google Workspace account for business or education?

If you own a domain Google Account (example: sue@CompanyName.com or Joe@JoesFamily.net) that has an eligible Google One membership, you'll receive Google Workspace premium benefits.

But if you change your Google One membership to a Google Workspace account for business or education without Google Workspace premium, you'll lose access to that feature. Learn which editions of Google Workspace include premium features.

Examples:

  • If you change your Google One Premium plan to a Workspace Essentials Starter account, you'll lose access to background noise cancellation and meeting recordings, but you can still host longer meetings.
  • If you change your Google One Premium plan to a Workplace Enterprise Starter account, you'll lose access to background noise cancellation, but can still record and host longer meetings.
