Meet in Gmail now rolling out on Android
Quick launch summary
Last month, we announced that Meet in Gmail would be coming to Android and iOS. The feature began rolling out to iOS last week and starts rolling out to Android today. This means users can join secure video meetings directly from a dedicated Meet tab in the Gmail Android app.
See our previous announcement for more information on this feature.
Admins: There is no admin control for this feature.
End users: Meet in Gmail on mobile will be ON by default when users update their Gmail app. Users can hide the Meet tab inside of the Gmail app in their Gmail settings by deselecting “Show the Meet tab for video calling” under “Meet.”
- Rapid and Scheduled Release domains as well as personal Google accounts: Gradual rollout (up to 15 days for feature visibility) starting on July 20, 2020
- Available to all G Suite customers and users with personal accounts
- Users with a G Suite for Education account that is enabled to create Meet video meetings will have the Meet tab enabled in Gmail. G Suite for Education accounts that are not able to create Meet video meetings will not see the Meet tab in Gmail and should use the Meet Android or iOS apps to join meetings instead.
- Google Help: Start or join a video call from Gmail
- G Suite Updates: Coming soon: Google Meet in Gmail on mobile
