Join a video meeting

You can join a scheduled meeting from a calendar event, from a link, or with a meeting code. You can also dial in from your phone if the invitation includes a phone number.

If you weren’t directly invited to another organization's meeting, you can still select the link. For you to join the meeting, a meeting participant from that organization must then approve your request. 

The same Meet code and phone number are used to join recurring Calendar events. 

You need a G Suite account to create meetings. Your administrator must also turn on Meet for your organization. 

Join from a calendar event

  1. In Calendar, open the event.
  2. To join the meeting, click the Join video call link.

Join a scheduled meeting from Meet

  1. Open the Hangouts Meet app.
  2. Swipe up from the bottom to view your scheduled meetings.
  3. Select a meeting from the list and tap Join.

Tap the meeting link URL

  1. Tap the meeting link sent to you via text or email. 
  2. Follow the onscreen prompts to join.

For example, someone in the meeting can send the meeting details in a text or email.

Enter the meeting code

You can join a meeting by entering the meeting code, which is the unique code at the end of the meeting link. For example, abc-defg-hjk. The ‘-’ characters are optional.

  1. Open the Hangouts Meet app.
  2. Tap Add Add.
  3. Enter the meeting code or nickname. To start your own meeting, enter a nickname or leave it blank.
  4. Tap Go.
    • If you’re signed in to your G Suite account, click Join.
    • If you’re not signed in to a G Suite account, enter your name and click Ask to join meeting.

 

Tips:

  • Tap Add Your Room and enter the room name if your organization has purchased and installed a Chrome device for meetings. You can also enter the code into that device. 
  • To join a meeting hosted by another organization, you must enter the full URL (which includes the meeting code). For example https://meet.google.com/abcdefghjk.

Dial in using a phone

If the meeting includes a dial-in number, you can tap the phone number included in the Calendar event or meeting invite for audio-only access.

  1. Open the Calendar event or meeting invite.
  2. Tap the phone number.
  3. If prompted, enter the PIN, and press #.

Tips

  • Press *6 to mute or unmute yourself from a phone.
  • The PIN is automatically entered if you tap the phone number from the Meet or Calendar app.

Notes

  • Dial-in participants count toward the maximum meeting limit.
  • If your organization has the G Suite Enterprise edition, a dial-in phone number is included for all meetings, unless disabled by your administrator. Anyone can join using the number, even if they are in a different organization or have a different G Suite edition.
  • You will be notified if someone in the call mutes you. Press *6 to unmute.
  • Regular call charges apply.
