Host Hangouts Meet meetings with up to 100 participants

What’s new: Meeting with teammates, clients, or customers around the globe is critical to getting your job done. For those times when you need to meet with a larger group, Hangouts Meet now allows G Suite Enterprise users to organize meetings with up to 100 participants and G Suite Business users to host up to 50 participants. This participant count includes people from both inside and outside of your organization.

 

Hangouts Meet host 100 participants

 

This new extended participant limit supports people joining from any mixture of video and dial-in entry points so you can flexibly bring together even more people from all over the world. It is now fully rolled out across all domains.

If you need to host an even larger meeting, you can enable live streaming, allowing up to 100,000 viewers to watch at once

 

Invite people to an ongoing Hangouts Meet meeting

What’s new: We’re adding a new way to invite people to an ongoing meeting directly within Hangouts Meet. When you’re in a Meet meeting, you’ll now see an option to “Add people” at the top of the participant list.

Clicking on this option will open a dialog box to send them an email invite to join as a full participant or call them into the meeting by phone.

 

To invite someone into your meeting, simply input their email address or lookup by name from the company directory. The invited participant will receive an email with instructions to join your meeting.

As always, inviting someone using their phone number will immediately call the phone number to add them to the meeting. They will join as an audio-only participant and will not see any video or the screenshare.

 

For more information on inviting people to Meet meetings, check out the Help Center.
