Google announced the public launch of Hangouts Meet and the Early Adopter Program for Hangouts Chat, the new enterprise-focused video meetings and online messaging experiences coming to Google Hangouts. Learn more about the new Hangouts in our blog post here: Meet the new Hangouts.
Getting started with Meet
If you are a G Suite administrator, the ability to enable specific organizational units for Meet or even your entire domain is gradually rolling out starting today.
- To give users in your domain access to Meet, please review this Admin Help Center article.
- You can also share the Hangouts Meet Learning Center with your employees to help them get familiar with the new video meetings experience.
Because Meet is launching default off for existing Hangouts users, you have the flexibility and control to plan and coordinate the rollout of Meet with your team and users.
Applying for early access to Chat
- If you are a G Suite administrator, you can now apply to our Hangouts Chat Early Adopter Program.
