The times have changed, and you no longer have to meet face to face with colleagues and partners to discuss business. With just a few steps taken, you can easily set up a Google Meet video conference to have it all done. And, if you want to refer to the call later, you might want to consider recording it. This post serves to take you through how to record a Google Meet video call.
You need to know that recording a meeting is only available with the computer version of Meet. Mobile app users get notified when the recording starts or stops, but cannot control it. The feature is also only available to G Suite Enterprise users.
How to record a Google Meet video meeting
To record, you need to join the video meeting first, start presenting, and then go on with the recording. Once you have joined a meeting on a PC or Mac:
- Click the More button (three vertical dots)
- Then click Record Meeting.
- Once you begin recording, participants will be notified.
- Click More and then Stop recording when you finish. Alternatively, the recording stops when everyone leaves the meeting.
- Click Stop recording again to verify.
Once recorded, the meeting will be saved to the meeting organizer’s Google Drive. A link will automatically be sent out to the meeting organizer and the person who initiated the recording so that it can be downloaded.
