New Video Conferencing Experience with Hangouts Meet | The G Suite Show

say video conferencing, what comes to mind? Bad connection? Calls that are hard to schedule
and even harder to join? Terrible interfaces? With employees working remotely
more now than ever before, we need videoconferencing that
is secure, fast, reliable, and above all else, easy. LILIANA YU: Jenny? Hi. What are you doing? JENNY BROWN: I
thought rather than just tell people about new
Hangouts Meet, I’d show them. LILIANA YU: Oh, great idea. Where are you calling from? JENNY BROWN: You know,
it’s funny that you’d ask. And it’s also funny how
our producer schedules time for me to record
even when I’m on vacation. Thanks, Heather. LILIANA YU: Hangouts Meet is
new video meeting experience that seeks to improve every
aspect of videoconferencing. JENNY BROWN: First
of all, scheduling a meeting is a piece of cake. Oh, I didn’t order this,
but is it gluten free? On either my computer
or smartphone, I go to Google Calendar
and create an event. I invite guests to the event. And then when I
click Send, they’ll receive a notification email
that contains a direct link to the video call. That’s it. LILIANA YU: One way Meet
streamlines videoconferencing is by starting every
meeting with a shared link. JENNY BROWN: No plugins, logins,
or super complicated downloads required, just a URL
that’s short and unique. LILIANA YU: I can also start an
instant meeting on my computer by going to Once there, I click
Start a New Meeting. And then I click Copy Info
to copy the meeting link and share it with others. JENNY BROWN: If I’m
on my smartphone, there’s a new Meet app
I can use that shares a much higher quality
video with others, lets you see presentations
in vivid detail, and gives you contacts and
meeting just like a desktop. Then, I just tap Add to create
a video meeting and Share to send the meeting
details to my guests. LILIANA YU: Joining a meeting
is every bit as simple as creating one. Meet effectively allows you to
join a meeting in two clicks via desktop or smartphone. In Calendar, I click the
event I want to join. And then I click on
the video meeting link. I can also click on that same
link in an email notification or text message. JENNY BROWN: Alternatively,
I can go to on my computer or the
Hangouts Meet app on my phone and see a list of my
scheduled meetings and select the one
I want to join. LILIANA YU: G-Suite
Enterprise customers also have a dial-in option
for audio only access. Whenever an event is created for
a G-Suite Enterprise customer, it automatically includes a
randomly allocated US phone number and PIN. So if you don’t have Wi-Fi,
you can still call in. JENNY BROWN: We’re
also working on a way to let you connect
via telegraph, Ouija board, or passenger pigeon. LILIANA YU: Really? JENNY BROWN: No. But in the future, we will
have an in-message chat so you can message
all the participants without interrupting
the speaker. LILIANA YU: Also, let’s chat
about the new interface. JENNY BROWN: Ha,
funny, I like it. Meet has a new user interface
designed for efficient meetings which load faster, use
fewer client resources, and run more reliably. That means less,
eh, uh, ah, uh– LILIANA YU: You’re
really good at that. Jenny? Jenny? JENNY BROWN: Gotcha. LILIANA YU: OK. Well, in addition to
reliably sharing your face, you can also reliably
share your screen. During a meeting, when
discussing a certain file, I can easily share my
screen to present documents, presentations,
spreadsheets, and more. I just click Present in
the bottom right corner, and select either
a window to share a specific window or your
entire screen to share– well, you get the idea. When I’m done, I simply
click Stop Presenting. JENNY BROWN: Meet is also a
fully scalable experience. Currently, up to 25 devices
can join a video meeting. That’s 30 for G-Suite
Enterprise users. And we’re planning to increase
this to 50 sometime soon. Meet allows up to five
active participants to be visible at a time while
less active participants are included in an easily toggled
participant list on the side. I can also add guests to a
meeting already in progress. I just click Copy Info
from the bottom corner and then paste that information
into an email or text to send to the new guest. LILIANA YU: Also,
scheduled meetings are synced automatically
across all your devices. So I can start a
meeting on my computer and then seamlessly
continue it on my phone. JENNY BROWN: Well,
this was fun, Lili, but I’ve got to get
back to my vacation now. LILIANA YU: I’m so jealous. See you soon. JENNY BROWN: And see
you all next week. Check out Hangouts Meet
and let us know what you think in the comments below. SPEAKER 1: The difference
between team drives and my drive is exactly
what it sounds like. Team drive still allows you
to easily search, access, and store any file
anywhere on any device. The difference is team
drives is owned by the team. Whereas, my drive is
owned by individual.

    Will Chat and Meet be available for Education domains?

  2. BM TheBest Posted on April 11, 2017 at 6:26 pm

    When did I subscribe to this channel?

  3. Jay Morgan Posted on April 11, 2017 at 6:34 pm

    But you lose the ability to call phone numbers from the meeting, unless you have an account on the newly-introduced (January 2017) GSuite "Enterprise" tier. So, for most customers, Meet is removing some meeting functionality that hangouts possessed. That is a bummer.

  4. Blanco Blanco Filho Posted on April 11, 2017 at 6:55 pm

    For me this video has no value, because I do not know this language.

  5. Greg Askins Posted on April 11, 2017 at 6:57 pm

    Losing the ability to include 'dumbphones' is a bad deal for the nonprofit where I work. Just installed a few Chromebox for Meetings to connect with stakeholders sprinkled throughout a 17,000 square mile area of western Kansas so this feels like getting 'the rug pulled out from under'. I truly hope Google reconsiders and at least allows dial-in numbers for GSuite domains, Chromebox for Meeting owners or Google Voice subscribers. An artificially crippled Meet is a downgrade from Hangouts.

  6. Adele Raemer Posted on April 11, 2017 at 7:17 pm

    Looks promising! Does this show up on my YouTube Channel? Can the meetings be recorded for future reference, or if someone couldn't participate? (So sorry to be losing the funny hats and annotations, though)

  7. Adrienne McCue Posted on April 11, 2017 at 9:13 pm

    We are still in beta, so still not working with calendar and gmail…

  8. Adrienne McCue Posted on April 11, 2017 at 9:16 pm

    Google Chat isn't live yet either! 🙁

  9. Sean Flaherty Posted on April 12, 2017 at 1:22 am

    Dial-in number only available in the Enterprise tier? That's some BS right there.

  10. aryt alasti Posted on April 12, 2017 at 5:14 am

    Check out comments at Google Play – people hate the app and the concept of yet another separate mode of communications. Once again, Google is paying no attention to the user experience.

  11. Aaron Hatton Posted on April 12, 2017 at 8:51 am

    Am I the only one who spent the entire video trying to spot the camera in Jenny's sunglasses?

  12. Ondřej Pokorný Posted on April 12, 2017 at 10:48 am

    1:38 Much higher quality compared to what?

  13. Sean Flaherty Posted on April 12, 2017 at 1:16 pm

    If mobile is a big focus of Meet. Google, let me tell you that Mobile means in a car, or other places people need to call in using a dial-in number. Lack of a dial-in in for Hangouts (and now Meet, except for Enterprise) makes it useless for us. We use a paid service instead, to get that dial-in number option with video conferencing. You're missing an opportunity here Google.

  14. RandyRLT Rapin Posted on April 12, 2017 at 2:58 pm

    Will Apple and Microsoft users be able to join???

  15. Myra Lijek MS Posted on April 12, 2017 at 9:18 pm

    My team and I (spread across a few states and all using the GSuite) tried this for a week. Bad connections, bad video, but it was easy to add into Google calendar. Maybe we'll give it another try when they've worked out any bugs. But now, back to Zoom.

  16. Daniel Méndez Posted on April 13, 2017 at 3:10 pm

    Why do you keep two separate apps por chat and video? It should be in the same one

  17. LGJ Properties Posted on April 15, 2017 at 2:45 pm

    this is a great tool for business.

  18. Maru Busico-Flight Posted on April 17, 2017 at 2:53 pm

    Loove it!!!! Thanks!

  19. Adrienne McCue Posted on April 19, 2017 at 11:50 pm

    I finally got it, I had to change the Admin setting. cheers, loving the possibilities!

  20. Lorena Neiling Posted on April 20, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    Is the chat inside the meeting still working? I use it when someone have tecnical problems and for sharing the links for Drive documents.

  21. Trevor Beck Posted on April 26, 2017 at 6:10 am

    To re-iterate other comments, if we cannot have dial-in access, can we have dial out capability as we currently do in Hangouts? Many of my users do not have a headset or camera, but everyone has a phone. Screensharing on the computer and adding users through the phone means even my most technically challenged person can join a hangout.

  22. Adam Oldfield Posted on April 26, 2017 at 4:31 pm

    Come on Google! This was WAY to premature to launch and remove Hangouts! This is not a good marketing/business direction you are going in. Office 365 / Skype are all laughing right now, and if they offered the same price points as Google I believe that many are starting to rethink who they should do business with. It appears the value for intercommunication is aimed at SUPER large companies, and Small/Mid-size businesses are left with 4 options to figure out or other 3rd party considerations. I can honestly say…this seems like Google is going backwards in their ability to serve the business community. Please get a war room strategy session together to consider figuring this out…as this 1/2 ass working system is NOT the way to go.

  24. Alex Saing Posted on May 4, 2017 at 2:15 pm

    Hangouts Meets needs to be free for consumers. Please hurry up and put it up for us!

  25. Mahiuddin khandaker Tapoes Posted on May 10, 2017 at 12:15 am


  26. Charles Rube Posted on May 10, 2017 at 10:55 pm

    So far the system has been working well, but the lack of dial in phone number for less than Enterprise level licenses is a huge disappointment.  In fact, we're now having to look for an alternative system.  We only have a handful of over 300 users that would need the dial in, so we can't bump our Business subscription to Enterprise just for those.   Great software Google, but bad business move.

  27. Jennifer Fryer Posted on May 30, 2017 at 3:11 pm

    When is chat going to be available?

    I use this to support meeting members who are having technical issues with headsets etc.

    I can't explain how much I miss this feature!!!!

  28. Alina B. Posted on July 14, 2017 at 4:35 am

    Can you live stream or post these meetings to youtube?

  29. Ray Mota Posted on July 18, 2017 at 10:14 pm

    Great to see the improvement in quality and speed. It seems easier to use – I have two questions:
    1- will slide-mode work in PowerPoint anytime soon
    2- We have G Suite enterprise – will our customers that don't have gmail account be able to join the video conference

  30. Alex Rocca Posted on October 25, 2017 at 5:22 pm

    When are we going to have the option to record a meeting.

  31. Matt Oliva Posted on April 19, 2018 at 10:42 pm

    I love seeing the easter eggs seeing Debbie and John! #throwback

    Time to update this video, as a lot of this has changed since it was rolled out

  34. Fernando Fdzcano Posted on October 1, 2018 at 10:32 pm

    You can share de screen from your computer, bur can I share my cellphone screen?

  35. Frankie Posted on December 7, 2018 at 8:58 am

    Have heard of it but… What's Gsuite? – Long time Google User.

  36. Igor Khomenko Posted on January 11, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    Did not expect such a low quality amateurish video from Google.

  37. Andressa Diniz Posted on March 14, 2019 at 10:09 am

    How can I mute my microphone when I’m sharing the screen?

  38. Jennifer S Posted on September 27, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    If there was an upgraded option where you pay more to get a 150-200 participant limit, that would be awesome!!

  39. Daniel Sevier Posted on October 1, 2019 at 3:35 pm

    In Google Meet, is there a way to hide or minimize my own video? Thanks.
