Include captions with a Google Meet video recording

What’s changing

If you’re using captions in Google Meet, you now have the option to include those captions in a meeting recording. Including captions in your meeting recordings can help make them more useful and accessible for meeting participants.

Note that to record a meeting, the feature must be enabled by your admin and you have to be:

  • The meeting host.
  • Part of the host’s organization. Note that if host management is on, you’ll need to be a meeting co-host to use this feature.
  • Promoted to a co-host if you are outside the meeting hosts's organization.
  • A teacher or co-teacher for meetings created through Google Classroom.
