What’s changingVideo calling from Hangouts Meet and classic Hangouts is now controlled by the same setting. This means that the setting in the Admin console that controls classic Hangouts video calling now also controls Hangouts Meet.
Why it mattersBy combining these settings, we’re making it easier for you to manage all video calling within your organization.
Getting startedAdmins: You can find the new, consolidated setting in the Admin console at Apps > G Suite > Settings for Google Hangouts > Meet settings. Learn more in the Help Center. The new setting will respect your previous setting. For new G Suite customers, video calling will be enabled by default.
End users: There is no end user setting for this feature.
