Google Meet with co-hosts

This is a feature that allows you to add co-hosts to your meeting. This is useful when you want to have someone else manage the meeting while you focus on the content.

If hosting options are available, co-hosts can:

  • Mute or remove other participants
  • Manage participants
  • Limit who can share their screen, send chat messages, and more
  • Start or stop recording (and transcription)
  • Start or stop live streaming (if available)
  • Create breakout rooms (if available)
