Use the Meet bot

You can use the Meet bot in Hangouts Chat to handle requests to schedule, modify and cancel meetings, as well as to look up your schedule. You can send a direct message, for example "help" to the Meet bot to get information you need.

Send a direct message to the Meet bot

You can add the bot to your list of bots in Chat and send it direct messages.

  1. Open Chat.
  2. Click Find people, rooms, bots.
  3. Enter meet, and then select the bot from the list of suggestions.
  4. Enter your message and click Send Send.

Use the Meet bot in rooms

Unlike with direct messages, you must explicitly mention @meet in each message in a room (including in replies to questions from the bot to clarify the scheduling request). This confirms you're talking to the bot and not to others in the room.

If you start scheduling a meeting with @meet in a room, any other user in the room will see that request, and could modify or even cancel the meeting in their reply with @meet.

If you ask @meet to create a meeting while in a room, the meeting attendees are the room members unless you specify otherwise.

Note: Some @meet bot features work in direct messages, but not in rooms. In particular, you can use @meet in a room to schedule a meeting, but not to do other calendar interactions, such as asking for your agenda.b
