Google Meet - Recording a Meeting

TWU faculty, staff and students are able to record a meeting using TWU Google account from a computer. 
Mobile app users, people who dial in using a phone, and people outside of TWU, will be notified when the recording starts and stops, but cannot control the start or stop the recording.

  • By default, recordings are saved to the meeting organizer’s My Drive > Meet Recordings folder. 
  • The meeting organizer has full access to the recording, and the person who started the recording will only have view access to the recording. 
  • Recordings must be generated and are not immediately available after the recording ends. Depending on the length of recording, it may take a few minutes or even up to hours to process.
  • When recording is uploaded, an email with the recording link is sent to the meeting organizer and the person who started the recording (if different than the meeting organizer).
  • To share the recording with others, go to the recording file and click Share.
