Project Description📖 < 1 min read
To increase the privacy of education meetings in Google Meet, anonymous users (users not signed into a Google account) can no longer join meetings organized by anyone with a Google Workspace for Education or Google Workspace Enterprise for Education license. This prevents participants from sharing a link publicly to encourage anonymous users to request access.
Admins and end users
Why it’s important
Anonymous users can cause disruption to learning by making noise and sharing content, and become a distraction for the meeting organizer when they try to join meetings.
Admins: There is no admin for this feature. Google Workspace for Education admins can request to have this feature disabled to allow anonymous participants to join Google Meet calls by contacting Google Workspace support to request an exception. This will allow meetings organized by users in their domain to allow anonymous users to join.
End users: This feature will be ON by default. Visit the Help Center to learn more about setting up Meet for distance learning.
- Rapid and Scheduled Release domains: Gradual rollout (up to 15 days for feature visibility) starting on July 13, 2020
- Available to Google Workspace for Education and Google Workspace Enterprise for Education customers
