Create a Meet hardware meeting

You can schedule a meeting in Google Calendar to use a Google Meet hardware device, such as a Chromebox or a Chromebase. The people that you invite get the details that they need to join the meeting from a room or their device. You can find a link to the meeting in the event in Calendar or on the screen when you join the meeting.

To add guests from other organizations to a Google Meet hardware meeting, simply add them as you would any other guest.

Depending on your edition of Google Workspace, Google Meet supports 100–250 participants per meeting.
