Record a meeting

This feature is available with the G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Enterprise for Education editions. For details, see Compare G Suite editions.

You can record video meetings for other people to watch later if you are the meeting organizer or in the organizer's domain.

Recordings are saved in the Google Drive of the meeting organizer and in the Calendar event. Also, the meeting organizer gets an email with the recording link.

Recordings include the main window and participant filmstrip, including the active speaker and presented documents. Other windows or notifications are not included.

Notes 

  • People outside your organization, mobile app users, and people who dial in using a phone get notified when the recording starts or stops, but cannot control the recording. 
  • Free G Suite Enterprise for Education edition licenses are not eligible to record meetings. Compare G Suite for Education vs. G Suite Enterprise for Education.

This feature is only available for the desktop version. Click Computer to see the instructions. 

Note: Mobile app users get notified when the recording starts or stops, but cannot control the recording.
