Google Workspace Education Plus admins can enable Google Meet recording for users with student licenses

Quick launch summary

We’re adding a new setting for Google Workspace for Education Plus (formerly G Suite for Education) admins that will enable Google Meet recording capabilities for users with Education Plus student licenses. Student licenses are available to customers who purchased Education Plus for their staff. 

When turned on, students can record meetings the same way other users can today. This can be helpful for students who want to review a lesson or class presentation later on. Once turned on, meeting recordings will be automatically saved to the student’s Google Workspace for Education Drive account.
