Quickly access your meeting notes and files from within your Hangouts Meeting

How many times have you started to discuss a file in a meeting, only to discover no one has it open yet or they can’t find it? Sure, you can send them the link, but let’s go one better than that.

There is now a Calendar integration with Hangouts Meet, so anything you’ve attached to a Calendar invite will appear in the Hangouts Meet call for everyone to access.

Here’s how to do:

  • Within your Meet, click on the meeting title in the bottom left-hand side
  • You’ll see all the meeting details plus a tab to the right > Attachments
  • Directly click on the link attachments to open your files and tell your colleagues to do it too!
  • This way it makes it easier for colleagues to follow your docs and files instead of one person having to screen-share.
