Why can't you view Google Meet History?

Have you ever finished up an important Google Meet call or online class, only to want to reference something that was discussed? Maybe you need the exact date of a meeting or want to revisit notes a colleague shared.  Unfortunately, you quickly realize that Google Meet doesn't have a built-in way to view your meeting history.

Sure, if you visit Google's support documentation, you'll find information about a "call log," but this is primarily geared towards those who use Google Meet's telephone features. It won't help you recover details of standard video conferences.

How to see my Google Meet History

You have 3 options:

  1. Check your Google Calendar history
  2. Use the Admin Logs
  3. Using a Google Meeting recorder management tool

Lets dig into these options:

1. Checking your Calendar for a log of Google Meet History

While calendar invites provide a basic record of meeting schedules, they fall short in providing detailed information about past meetings. Here are some limitations of relying solely on calendar invites:

  • Lack of Meeting Transcripts: Calendar invites do not provide any audio or text transcripts of the meeting discussions, making it difficult to capture important details and action items.
  • Limited Attendance Tracking: Calendar invites typically only indicate the scheduled attendees, not those who actually participated in the meeting. This can lead to inaccuracies when tracking meeting attendance and participation.
  • No Meeting Summaries: Calendar invites do not generate summaries of key discussion points, decisions made, or action items, making it challenging to retain essential information.

2. Checking Admin Logs

Accessing Google Meet history can be particularly challenging for non-admin users. Google Workspace admins have access to a limited 'log' of past meetings, but this information is often incomplete and lacks essential details.

Non-admin users are left with the option of combing through calendar invites, which can be time-consuming and inefficient and simply cannot see a log. ScreenApp is a tool to solve this.

3. Using a Google Meet History Management tool

Managing Google Meet history can be a tedious and time-consuming task, especially when juggling multiple meetings and projects. ScreenApp, a free solution to record all of your meetings, simplifies this process, enabling you to effortlessly access, organize, and utilize your Google Meet history.
