Additional details

Manage who can share their screen

To control who can share their screen in a meeting, hosts can turn “Share their screen” on or off. By default, this setting will be on.
When “Share their screen” is on, participants will see the option to share their screen to all meeting participants.
When “Share their screen” is off:
  • Only the host can share their screen.
  • The option to “Present now” won’t show for participants.
Hosts can turn “Share their screen” on or off from within meetings on the web. Hosts will not see the option to change this setting on mobile devices.
Manage who can send in-meeting chat messages
To control who can send chat messages in a meeting, hosts can turn “Send chat messages” on or off. By default, this setting will be on.
When “Send chat messages” is on, participants will see the option to send chat messages to meeting participants.
When “Send chat messages” is off:
  • Only the host can send chat messages, but participants will still be able to see messages sent by the host.
  • Messages sent when “Send chat messages” was on will still show in the chat history.
Hosts can turn “Send chat messages” on or off from within meetings on the web. Hosts will not see the option to change this setting on mobile devices.

If you’re unable to turn the features on or off, it’s possible that you have a Chrome extension for Meet which is preventing the features from working. To fix the issue, try turning your Meet Chrome extensions off.

Getting started

Admins: There are no admin controls for these features.
End users: These features will be on by default and can be turned on or off by the host during each meeting. Visit the Help Center to learn more about turning these features on or off in your meetings.
