Want to use Google Meet with your team? G Suite Essentials is free through September 30th. Try it today

Through September 30, 2020, G Suite customers have free access to advanced Google Meet video conference features, such as larger meetings (up to 250 participants), live streaming, and recording. After September 30, Google Meet feature availability depends on the customer's G Suite edition. Meetings recorded during the promotional period, however, stay in the respective owner’s Drive.

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

If you use Google Meet for work or school, you can add view-only live streaming to an event for up to 100,000 people.

Who can view a live stream 

Only guests in your organization can view a live stream. All participants in your organization 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.
