Did you know you can use Google Meet with people who don’t have G Suite? Here are some tips below to help you…


  1. Setup your invite via Google Calendar, add your guests and make sure you ‘Add conferencing’.

  3. Recommend attendees use Chrome (it might not work in other browsers!)
  4. There’s a mobile app for Meet as well, if your guests prefer to use their phone or tablet.

Note: You don’t have to go via the calendar to set up a video call. You can also go directly to the Google Meet app (
