Join a video meeting

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

If you weren’t directly invited to another organization's meeting (for example, someone forwarded the link), you can still select the link, but a meeting participant from that organization must approve your request to join. 

Not all users are allowed to create meetings, which requires a G Suite account. Your administrator must also turn on Meet for your organization. Learn more
