Google Meet is now introducing the ability to live stream meetings on YouTube, which could make them more accessible to viewers than the previous method of live streaming events through Meet itself, more than two years after the pandemic started and as video calls have taken over workspaces. For the business accounts they oversee, Google Workplace admins have the option to enable public streaming. This feature also comes with a few restrictions to ensure that your weekly standup doesn’t turn into an open mic.

Most paid Workplace accounts can access the feature, including Enterprise tiers (starter, standard, and), Education Plus, Teaching and Learning upgrade, Workplace individual subscribers, and, in some countries, Google One Premium plan members. However, access is not available to users of the majority of starter, basic, legacy, or essential packages.
You must submit a request in advance to have your YouTube channel approved if you want to Livestream a Google Meet session on YouTube. Up to 24 hours may pass before the request is approved. Users can modify the length and duration of streams in their privacy settings. A complete list of the requirements to start streams is available on this support page.
This year, Google Meet underwent a lot of changes, including the integration with Google Duo to create a single hub for voice and video calls.
The ability to stream events like school board meetings on YouTube was mentioned in a Google Meet update for teachers in June 2021, and it is now actually becoming widely available (it could take up to a couple of weeks to become available for eligible accounts). Since then, additional features have been introduced, including enhancements for breakout rooms and a “video lock” that enables hosts to mute or turn off everyone’s videos simultaneously.
Google also introduced emoji and picture-in-picture in March, both of which are minor but helpful changes. With Google Meet’s updated user interface, you can now pin and unpin content, avoid having to see your face the entire time, and access all of Meet’s controls in a single bar.
