Join from a third-party system

If your organization allows it, you can join a Hangouts Meet video meeting from a third-party conferencing system, such as Cisco, Polycom, Lifesize, Sony, or others. Ask your G Suite administrator for help with third-party compatibility.

  1. In Calendar, open the event.
  2. Select More joining options.
  3. Select Third-party systems.
  4. Follow the instructions to join from your system.


What you can’t do

If you join from a third-party system, you can’t use Meet to control functions, such your camera or microphone. Instead, use the third-party controls.

For example, you can’t take the following actions from your third-party system:

  • See or write in-meeting chat.
  • Start or stop Meet recordings.
  • Admit or block other participants.
  • Mute or unmute other participants.

Other Meet participants cannot mute your room.
