Live stream a video meeting

In-house and cross-domain live streaming is available with these Google Workspace editions: 

  • Enterprise Plus
  • Enterprise Standard
  • Education Plus
  • Teaching and Learning Upgrade 

Compare Google Workspace editions or learn about your available Meet features.

If live streaming is on for your work or school account, you can let people in your organisation watch your video meetings.With cross-domain live streaming, admins can also allow up to 50 different trusted workspace sub-domains to join their live streams. The maximum number of live stream viewers depends on your Google Workspace edition.

Tip: If you’re a Google Workspace administrator who manages Google Meet for your organisation, first allow live streaming.

Who can view a live stream 

Only guests in your organisation can view a live stream. All participants in your organisation can stop and start the stream during the meeting and record the event. Guests who join as 'view-only' can’t participate in the meeting or control streaming and recording.

Tip: Live stream organisers will see a viewer count at the top of their screen. The live stream counter will show every new viewer until the first 100 users. After 100 users, it will round to the nearest five.
