Recording Presentations in Google Meet for Students

Recording in Hangouts Meet

In order to record in Hangouts Meet, navigate to and click "Join or Start a Meeting". If a meeting has already been scheduled, it will appear here as well. After clicking "Join or Start a Meeting", a small window will appear to name the meeting at your discretion. When finished, click "Continue" and follow the directions below.

  1. Click "Join Now" to continue.
  2. Click "Add People" to invite other classmates if this is a group presentation, or click "X" on the window to continue.
  3. In the bottom right-hand corner, click on the three vertical dots. A window will pop up.
  4. At the top of this window, click "Record Meeting", then click "Accept".
  5. When finished recording, click the three vertical dots again. A window will pop up..
  6. Click "Stop Recording". The recording will stop, and inform you it is being saved to the meeting host's Google Drive.

It should be noted that recordings do not transfer to drive instantly. It may take some time for the video to be processed. When it is complete you will receive an email, and have a new folder in Google Drive called "Meet Recordings". You can get to Google Drive by typing in your web browser.

Important: This process will be changing on October 1, 2020. At that time, recordings will no longer be saved to Google Drive and cannot be downloaded. Instead, users will get a link for a recording that will be temporarily stored for 30 days. This usually is more than enough time for your instructor to grade the assignment. If you would like to have a copy of the presentation, we recommend recording a copy using an outside software like Screencast-o-matic or Kaltura Capture.
