Block participants from Google Meet when trying to access again

General information

Google is making two changes to the “knocking” (meeting request) section in Google Meet to reduce disruption in educational meetings.

First, if the meeting moderator refuses to type twice from the same participant, that participant will be blocked from typing again. This means that moderators won't see any additional responses from that user for the duration of the meeting.

Second, if a moderator removes a participant, that participant will not be able to:

  • Rejoin an existing meeting (even if they're in the domain or on the invite calendar).
  • Tap to request to rejoin an existing meeting.

In the past, when disruptive members were kicked out of a meeting, they could continue to interrupt the meeting by rejoining or repeatedly knocking on the door.

Block participants from Google Meet when trying to access again

Note, if a moderator pushes the wrong participant, they can still add that participant to the meeting by manually inviting them. They can use the add people button in the dashboard.
