Transcribe Speech During Google Meet Calls Into A Google Doc

What’s Changing

Google Meet video meetings can now be transcribed into a Google Doc. Meeting transcripts automatically capture the meeting discussion, making it convenient for when you need to follow up afterward. You can find the saved transcribed file in the hosts “Meet Recordings” folder in Google Drive. As of now this feature is only supported in English, support for French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese coming in 2023.

Additional Details

As announced by Google, for meetings with fewer than or equal to 200 invitees, the meeting host, co-hosts, or the transcript initiator will receive a link to the transcription document via email after the meeting ends. The transcript will automatically be attached to the associated calendar invite for the meeting. For meetings with more than 200 attendees, the transcription will only be shared with the meeting organizers, host, and co-hosts, and individual users who initiated a transcription.

Prior to the meeting attendees will see a notification informing them when transcripts are active. This feature will be on by default. There is no admin control for Google Workspace Business Standard customers.
