Google Meet connects YouTube

Google Meet is now rolling out the ability to livestream meetings on YouTube, which could open them up to viewers more easily than the old way of livestreaming events through Meet itself.

Workplace admins can opt in to public streaming for the business accounts they manage, which also includes a few guardrails to make sure your weekly standup doesn’t turn into an open mic, reports the Verge.

The feature is available to paid Workplace accounts: Enterprise tiers (starter, standard, and plus), Education Plus, Teaching and Learning upgrade, and Workplace individual subscribers.

The approval process can take up to 24 hours. Users who need to change how long streams can be and for how long can do so in their privacy settings, and a full list of what’s needed to get the streams.
