Requirements for Google Meet Recording

Can you record Google Meet any way you want? Unfortunately, you can’t. There are some restrictions over recording as it involves privacy issues. The specific requirements for recording a Google Meet are as follows:

1. You should first have a G Suite account and the G Suite administrator must turn on recording for your account in advance.

2. You should be the meeting organizer or in the same organization as the organizer. If you are delivering a class in Google Meet, you should be the teacher instead of the student.

3. You can record Google meetings only on the computer.

Note: Google Meet features are offered free until September 30, 2020. After September 30, these features are only available with a paid license.
