Google Meet is a video meeting option from Google that makes scheduling and joining a meeting easier. Whether you’re using a computer, an Android, or an iOS device, you can access meetings in one place. Meet supports up to 500 people at once.

Desktop experience

With Google Meet, you don’t need to schedule a meeting; just go to to start a new meeting or join a scheduled meeting.

Mobile Experience

Google Meet is available for mobile devices (Android and iOS), so you can meet on the go! Download and install Google Meet from the Play Store or the App Store.

Meet Security

Google Meet’s security controls are turned on by default so that, in most cases, organizations and users won’t have to do a thing to ensure the right protections are in place. Learn more about how Google keeps your video conferences protected.
