Use a phone for audio in a video meeting

Important: These features are currently available for meetings organized through a Google Workspace account.

To speak and listen on your phone while in a video meeting, you can have Google Meet call your phone. Google Meet can also dial into a meeting from your device.

If you're not in the meeting, your computer joins when your phone connects. If there are more than 5 people in the meeting, you’ll join muted. If your computer is muted before you connect, you’ll  join muted. 

For example, if you’re in a video meeting and the network connection is poor, you can dial in from your phone. Use your phone for audio instead of your computer’s microphone and speaker. 

This feature is not supported using Microsoft® Internet Explorer® 11. Learn about supported browsers.
