Accessing Google Meet With No Google Account

While you can't directly host or schedule a Google Meet app or meeting without a Google Workspace account, you can still join one if someone else invites you. Here's how to access Google Meet with no Google account:


  • A meeting link or code is provided by the host or personal Google accounts.
  • An internet connection.
  • A web browser or the Google Meet mobile app (optional).


  1. Get the meeting link or code: The meeting host will typically share this information in an email, calendar invite, or message.
  2. Open the meeting link: If you have the link, simply click on it in your web browser. This will attempt to open Google Meet directly.
  3. Enter the meeting code: Alternatively, if you have the meeting code, head over to in your web browser. You'll see a field to enter the meeting code.
  4. Join as a guest: You might be prompted to enter your name (optional) and then click "Join" or "Knock" (depending on the host's settings). Be patient, as the host might need to approve your entry, especially for meetings with restricted access.

Accessing Google Meet With Google Slides

Google Slides is an excellent tool for collaborating on presentations, providing easy access, sharing, and management. To get access to Google Meet with Google Slides, open your presentation and click the Meet icon in the right upper corner. This will display all your upcoming meetings, allowing users around you to join them with a single click, just like in Gmail.

You can seamlessly integrate Google Meet with Slides to directly present your slides during an active meeting. Join the meeting, open your desired presentation, click "Present now," choose "Tab," select your slides, and click "Share" to begin.

Accessing Google Meet Through Gmail

It's great that Gmail provides easy access to Google Meet in both the web browser and mobile app for Google workspace individual subscribers. If you need to start a meeting while composing an email, click the Meet icon in the bottom left corner of Gmail. This will show all your scheduled meetings, automatically synced with your Calendar. From here, you can create a new meeting or quickly join one not on your Calendar by clicking "Join the meeting" and entering the link.

Accessing Google Meet Through The Google Classroom

Teachers can create a dedicated meeting space for their Google Classroom using a single Google Meet link. This link stays inactive for students until the teacher starts the session, ensuring only enrolled students can join at the right time.

Here's how it works:

  • Teachers:
    1. Create your Google Classroom class.
    2. On the main class screen, click "Generate link" under the Meet section.
    3. Click the option "Visible" for students and save the link. You can always reset it later in Settings if needed.
  • Students:
    1. Go to Google Classroom.
    2. Pick the class you want to join.
    3. Look for the "Join" button in the left corner and click to enter the meeting.

This way, teachers have control over when the meeting starts and students have a convenient, one-click access point for joining the class session.


In conclusion, whether you're managing virtual classes in Google Classroom, collaborating via Google Chat, or presenting in Google Slides, creating a reusable Google Meet link streamlines session access for participants once a new event is initiated by the host.
