Some things to know about Google Meet
- Google Meet has very low security so please email or send the link to only those who should join the meeting.
- Google Meet meeting hosts cannot explicitly block someone from joining the meeting so, do not share the meeting link publicly.
- Google Meet meeting recordings are stored in Google Drive. Everyone with a free Google account will only get 15GB of storage on Google Drive. You can always transfer recordings from Google Drive to Kaltura Drexel Streams to free up storage on Google Drive but, If the meeting is going to be long enough to require more than 15GB of storage to store the recording then Google Meet is not recommended.
