Need to save important information from a Google Meet call?  Whether it's for training purposes, to catch up on a missed meeting, or just for better note-taking, recording your Google Meet sessions is super helpful. ScreenApp makes the process incredibly easy – here's your guide.

While Google Meet doesn't have a built-in recording feature for everyone, using a dedicated screen recording tool like ScreenApp is the answer. In this comprehensive guide, we'll break down everything you need to know about recording Google Meet with ScreenApp for professional, effective results.

Understanding Google Meet Recording Limitations

  • Workspace Requirement: Native Google Meet recording is generally limited to users on specific Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) plans.
  • Permission Settings: Admins and meeting organizers control recording options, affecting if certain individuals can start recording.

Google Meet is a great tool for having meetings and sharing screen with others.

Step-by-Step: Record Google Meet with ScreenApp

  1. Go to ScreenApp's Meeting recorder
  2. Meet Launch: Start or join your scheduled Google Meet session.
  3. Open ScreenApp: Click the ScreenApp icon in your browser or launch the app.
  4. Customize Settings: Choose what to record (screen, webcam, specific browser tab) and your audio input.
  5. Start Recording: Click the 'Record' button. ScreenApp begins capturing.
  6. Collaborate and Present: Share your screen, walk through slides, whatever your meeting involves!
  7. Stop and Save: Once the meeting ends, hit the 'Stop' button. Your recording is now processed and available in your ScreenApp dashboard.

Here are some additional tips for recording Google Meet meetings with ScreenApp:

  • Use a headset to get the best audio quality.
  • Choose a quiet location to record.
  • Close any other applications that you're not using, as this can help to improve the recording quality.
  • If you're having trouble recording your screen, try using the "Screen Capture" feature instead of the "Full Screen" feature.
