Google has announced that the following premium Meet features will be enabled until September 30, 2020 - see this FAQ for standard Meet limits and functionality

  • Larger meetings, for up to 250 participants per call
  • Live streaming for up to 100,000 viewers within a domain 
  • The ability to record meetings and save them to Google Drive

You can record video meetings for other people to watch later. You can record if you’re the meeting organizer or in the same organization as that person.

When you record a video meeting:

  • Recordings include the active speaker and anything that’s presented. Other windows or notifications are not included. Pinning a participant won’t affect who is shown in the recording.
  • Recordings are saved to the organizer’s Meet Recordings folder in My Drive. An email with the recording link is also sent to the meeting organizer and the person who started the recording. The link is also added to the Calendar event.
  • People outside of your organization, mobile app users, and people who dial in using a phone get notified when the recording starts or stops, but cannot control the recording.
  • If a participant turns on live captions during recording, the captions won't be recorded and don't appear when you play the recording.
