Get Started with Meet
Use Hangouts Meet to hold video meetings with people inside or outside your organization. You can join from a computer or mobile device, or from a conference room.
What you can do with Meet
Make video calls. Meet makes it easier than ever to start and join video meetings from mobile devices, computers, or a conference room. You can meet with up to 25 (G Suite Basic and Business) or 50 (G Suite Enterprise) people at a time.
Invite people inside or outside your organization. Schedule a meeting using Google Calendar or invite people after you join the call.
Dial in from a phone. A phone number and PIN is automatically added to every Meet video meeting created by G Suite Enterprise users. Anyone can use the number to dial-in (including external users and people using other G Suite editions). Note: Regular call charges apply.
Schedule meetings. All meetings scheduled with Google Calendar include a Meet video link. If you have the G Suite Enterprise edition, meetings also include a dial-in number so people can call in for audio access.
Start an instant meeting. On your phone, open the mobile app or, in your browser, go to https://meet.google.com start a meeting, and then invite others to join.
Share your screen. While in a meeting, you can share your screen to present slides or other information on your desktop.
Use multiple devices. Scheduled meetings are synced automatically across devices, so you can start a meeting on your computer and continue on another device, such as your phone.
Switch to Meet
If Meet is turned on for your entire organization, all new Calendar events include a Meet video call. You don’t need to do anything to switch. Previously scheduled calendar events still include a classic Hangouts video call, if applicable. Ask your administrator for more information.
Tip: If your organization still uses classic Hangouts, you can still join a Meet video call by clicking the link sent by someone else.
Note: G Suite administrators can turn Meet on or off, and control other settings. Learn more
