One of the main selling points of Google Meet is that most people already have it. You can use it with a Google account (or without one) and it's free.

To join a Google Meet meeting is the link to the meeting. You have the option to sign in with your Google account and join it, or join a meeting without an account.

Link to Google Meet

To join a Google Meet meeting, you need to be connected to it. The meeting link can be;



  • Found in the invitation to the meeting
  • Shared directly by the meeting organizer via email or chat app

Once you have the link, you can join the meeting. Note that you won't be able to join a meeting that hasn't started. If you enter the meeting before it has started, you will be placed in a queue. Only when the meeting organizer allows you to join the meeting will you be authorized to enter.

Google Meet joins a meeting

You can join a Google Meet meeting from your desktop using a modern desktop browser. There is no dedicated desktop app for Google Meet.

  • Enter the meeting link in the URL bar and tap Enter.

Note: Your browser will ask for permission to access the microphone and camera when you visit the meeting link. To be heard when you speak in a meeting, you'll need to allow your browser access to the microphone. If you want to participate with a video, allow the browser to access your webcam.
