- Google Calendar
- Google Chat
- Google Classroom
- Google Hangouts
- Google Meet Breakout rooms
- Google Meet homepage - meet.google.com.
- Google Meeting room device
- Google Nest
- Other third-party software. For example, Outlook.
Check when your code expires
To make sure you don't join a meeting with an expired code and to better plan for the future meetings you create, check when meeting codes expire.

Meeting codes expire when these conditions are met:

Tip: If a code is generated in another product, then pasted on a Calendar invite, that meeting isn’t a Calendar-generated meeting. The code expires based on what product the meeting is created from.
