Google Meet

So what is Meet? Meet is a rebranding of Google’s older service, Hangouts. It lets you video chat with your friends and family for free, with unlimited session lengths, and multiple options for joining. Anyone can join a Meet meeting, you don’t have to have a Google Account to do so.

Meet works on PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android devices, and more. If you’re using your computer to join one of our Meet meetings, you’re going to want to make sure you have one of the following browsers:

Keep in mind, Meet doesn’t really work on Internet Explorer, so if you need help installing one of these other browsers just let us know!

We chose Meet over Zoom for its security. If you’re curious about Meet’s security, here’s a bit of reading on how Google Meet keeps your video conferences protected.

Something to keep in mind before you get started using Meet on your laptop or computer is that you need to allow access to your microphone and camera for it to work as intended. To do this, here are the steps from Google: 

“Before you start using Meet, you need to allow access to your computer’s camera and microphone.

Allow access the first time you use Meet

  1. In a web browser, go to the Meet homepage.
  2. Click Start a new meeting.
  3. Click Allow.

Change the settings to allow access

If you aren’t asked to allow access or if you blocked access before, you can change your settings.

  1. In a web browser, go to the Meet homepage.
  2. Click Start a new meeting.
  3. At the top right, click Camera blocked Disallowed media.
  4. Click Always allow https://meet.google.com to access your camera and microphone.
  5. Click Done. The video meeting automatically connects. If you don’t see the meeting reload, exit and re-enter the meeting.” Link
