Transcribe speech during Google Meet calls into a Google Doc

What’s changing 

You can now transcribe a Google Meet video meeting into a Google Doc. The transcribed file is saved in the hosts “Meet Recordings” folder in Google Drive, similar to Meeting Recording. This feature can only be accessed when using Google Meet on a desktop or laptop. At this time, this feature is only supported in English.

Who’s impacted

End users 

Why it’s important

Meeting transcripts can automatically capture the meeting discussion, making it easier to follow up afterward or serve as a record. 

For meetings with fewer than or equal to 200 invitees, the meeting host, co-hosts, or the transcript initiator will receive a link to the transcription document via email after the meeting ends. Additionally, the transcript will automatically be attached to the associated calendar invite for the meeting. 

For meetings with more than 200 attendees, the transcription will only be shared with the meeting organizers, host, and co-hosts, and individual users who initiated a transcription. For recurring meetings, new transcription documents will be continually added to the Calendar invite. 

Additional information

Before joining a meeting, attendees will see a notification informing them when transcripts are active.
