Video calling from Hangouts Meet and classic Hangouts is now controlled by the same setting. This means that the setting in the Admin console that controls classic Hangouts video calling now also controls Hangouts Meet.
Why it matters
By combining these settings, Google is making it easier for you to manage all video calling within your organization.
Admins: You can find the new, consolidated setting in the Admin console at Apps > Google Workspace > Settings for Google Hangouts > Meet settings. Learn more in the Help Center.
The new setting will respect your previous setting. For new Google Workspace customers, video calling will be enabled by default.
End users: There is no end user setting for this feature.
