Project Description

đź“– 2 mins read
Google previously launched Google Meet attendance reports for education meetings, now it’s making several enhancements to provide more access, control, and visibility into meetings and live stream reports. Specifically:
  • Live streaming viewership data. Attendance reports will now include data on live streaming viewers in a separate tab. Live stream data will include total viewer count and viewers over the course of the live stream.
  • Admin control over attendance tracking. Admins can choose whether an organizational unit can use the attendance tracking feature or not.
  • New settings to control report creation. Meeting organizers who are not in Education domains can choose whether a report is created for the meeting via in-meeting settings or from the Calendar event before the meeting starts. Meeting organizers at Education domains will continue to automatically receive attendance reports for meetings with five or more participants.
  • In-call viewer count for live stream events. Live stream hosts and meeting attendees (not live stream viewers) will now see a count of the total number of live stream participants when joining via Meet from a desktop or computer.
  • Attendance reports for more customers. Google is making attendance reports available to Google Workspace Essentials, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, and Enterprise Plus customers. Previously, they were only available to Enterprise for Education customers.

Getting started

  • Admins: 
    • Attendance and live stream reports will be available by default for your users, but you can make them unavailable to your domain or specific OUs and groups. Visit the Help Center to learn more about managing attendance reports for your organization.
    • In-call viewer count for live streams will be ON by default and can’t be turned off. Visit the Help Center to learn more about live streaming a video meeting.
  • End users: 
    • Users in Enterprise for Education domains: Meeting organizers will continue to receive reports automatically for meetings with five or more participants.
    • Users in other domains: Attendance reports will be OFF by default, but meeting organizers can turn them ON for any meeting using the meeting settings during the call or the calendar event before the call. Visit the Help Center to learn more about how to turn attendance reports on or off in Google Meet.
    • All users: In-call viewer count for live streams will be ON by default and can’t be turned off. Visit our Help Center to learn more about live streaming a video meeting.
