Google Meet Rolls Out YouTube Livestreaming Feature

What you must understand

A new livestreaming function for Google Meet has been added to YouTube.
Meeting administrators will be able to choose whether to enable streaming and whether they want other attendees to stream as well. A more extensive rollout of this new live broadcast will happen two weeks after it starts on July 21. With the addition of a new feature, users will now be able to live stream meetings to YouTube on the Meet video chat app from Google.

Google Meet has had a busy few days because the search engine giant recently unveiled a new anonymity tool for polls and inquiries. With its Meet application, widely regarded as a go-to video conferencing tool, Google is now launching a new feature that fosters greater participation. Users will be able to choose to livestream meetings on their YouTube channels thanks to the service’s most recent feature.

An administrator can do this, according to Google, by going to the meeting’s Activities panel and choosing “Live Streaming.” The conference you’re conducting can then start streaming as soon as you choose your channel. According to Google, “situations where you wish to offer information to big audiences outside of your business, providing them the chance to pause and replay as needed, or view the presentation at a later time, are beneficial for livestreaming.”

For live streaming on YouTube, a channel approval procedure is in place. Users are informed by Google that before they may broadcast through Google Meet, their channel must receive approval. Only the host and co-hosts can start livestreaming the meeting when host management is enabled, according to its support page. Any participant in the meeting may begin livestreaming it if that option is turned on. If someone wants to watch the meeting live, Google also offers a privacy option.

Livestreaming meetings appears to be another feature Google is considering adding to Meet in order to differentiate it from competing platforms. The rollout of the new feature will happen in phases. The first is “rapid release,” which will roll out to a few domains starting on July 21 and taking three days to complete. The second will apply to domains that will undergo a “planned release” over the course of up to 15 days starting on July 25.
