How many people work for Google


Secure video conferencing

Google Meet uses the same security measures that Google uses to protect your information and your privacy. Meet video conferences are encrypted during transmission and our various security measures are continuously updated.

Video conferencing from anywhere

With Google Meet, you can share business ideas with your entire team, work on chemistry assignments with the whole class, or bring everyone up to speed.

Businesses, educational institutions and other organizations can broadcast live streams for up to 100,000 viewers in their domain.

Video conferencing for any device

Invited guests can take part in video conferences from their computer using any current web browser - without installing additional software. The Google Meet app is available for mobile devices.

Video conferencing in excellent quality

Google Meet adapts to your network speed, ensuring professional-quality video calls anywhere. Thanks to new AI improvements, calls have excellent sound quality even in ambient noise.

Video conferencing for everyone

Google Meet video conferencing is now an option for many new users with automatic captioning based on Google's speech recognition technology. Whether foreign participants, users with hearing problems or noisy caf├ęs - thanks to automatic subtitles everyone comes along (only available in English).

Stay in contact

Thanks to straightforward scheduling, simple recording and adaptive layouts, you can stay in touch.

Share screen

You can share your entire screen or just a window to present documents, slides or spreadsheets.

Participate by phone

You can take part in a video conference using the Google Meet app or simply dial in by phone using the dial-in number in the invitation to the meeting.

Everything is under control

Google Meet video conferencing is secure. The organizer determines who is allowed to take part in the video conference, and only authorized users are allowed to join.

Stream internal events

You can broadcast events such as town hall meetings and sales conferences as a live stream to up to 100,000 viewers in your domain.

The most common questions

What is the difference between Google Hangouts, Hangouts Meet, and Google Meet?

Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat were renamed Google Meet and Google Chat in April 2020. In 2019 we announced that we would switch all users of the classic Hangout to the new products Google Meet and Google Chat. Because we want to enable professional video conferencing for all users, we announced a free version of Google Meet in May 2020.

Yes. Google Meet uses the secure infrastructure of Google Cloud. This protects your information and your privacy. You can find more information about our data protection obligations, security precautions and data protection measures here.

Can external users participate in a video call?

Of course. The free version of Google Meet requires all attendees to sign in with a Google account. If you don't have a Google Account, you can create one with a work or personal email address.

Google Workspace users can also invite participants to video conferences without a Google Account. Simply share the link or the meeting ID with all participants.

Is Google Meet free?

Anyone with a Google account can create video conferences for free and invite up to 100 participants. These video conferences can last a maximum of 60 minutes.

For more information on additional features such as international dial-in numbers, video conference recording, live streaming and management settings, see Subscriptions and Pricing.

Do Google Meet links expire?

A meeting link remains active until the video conference ends. Meeting links for recurring video conferences remain active until the recurring appointment ends.

Does Google Meet meet my industry requirements?

Just like our other products, Google Meet is regularly checked for security, data protection and compliance by independent bodies. With the help of certifications, compliance attestations and test reports, we can prove that we meet global standards. You can find our global list of certifications and attestations here.

My organization uses the Google Workspace. Why can't I see Google Meet on the calendar?

The settings for the Google Workspace, for example whether Google Meet is the standard video conferencing solution in Google Calendar, is determined by IT administrators. For more information on how to turn on Google Meet for your organization, see the Google Workspace admin help.
