Live stream Hangouts Meet meetings

Many companies have important meetings that require delivering a message to large groups of people, like a company-wide all-hands or onboarding training. Now, G Suite Enterprise users can live stream Meet meetings to support these needs.

Meeting organizers in G Suite Enterprise domains can enable live streaming on their meeting in Calendar and invite their audience.

With the stream URL, up to 100,000 in-domain users can watch the meeting from the web or their mobile device. Support for watching live streams on Hangouts Meet hardware will be coming in the next few weeks. When ready, meeting participants can start the live stream to allow everyone to watch.

The ability to add live streaming to a meeting can be controlled per organizational unit (OU) from the Admin console. To do this, open the Admin console and go to Apps > G Suite > Google Hangouts and click “Meet settings.” Here, toggle “Let people stream their meetings.” This setting is ON by default.

For more information on live streaming video meetings, check out the Help Center.
