With Google Meet hardware, joining a video meeting is as simple as entering the meeting name using the remote control or tapping the touchscreen. If you have a Google Workspace account, you can schedule video meetings using Google Calendar and collaborate using other Google Workspace services. Even if you don’t, you can still invite guests, share your computer screen, and more.
All you need is a domain name
You don't need a Google Workspace account to use Google Meet hardware. All you need is to own your own domain name, as in www.your-company.com. When you purchase your device, we'll ask you to verify your domain. After that, you're ready to use your Meet hardware.
