Google is making it easy for users to present information to a larger audience than their organisation. It has announced a feature to its video conferencing platform, Google Meet. The feature will let users live stream meetings directly on YouTube. The Google Workspace admins will have to enable live streaming for their business accounts.
According to Google, the ability will allow viewers to pause, rewind and revisit a presentation at a later date.
Here is how to enable the feature
Users will have to request and get their YouTube Channel approved to live stream a Meet, the tech giant said in its blog post. The approval can take up to 24 hours.
The feature is available to Google Workspace Enterprise Starter, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, Google Workspace Individual users and Google One Premium members in select countries.
It does not extend to Google Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Education Standard, Education Fundamentals, Frontline, and Nonprofits, as well as legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers.
