However, this Google Meet recording feature might not be available in all Google Workspace editions or for all users in an organization, depending on the settings configured by the administrator. If you see “Recording unavailable,” you cannot record Google Meet with its recording feature. Alternatively, you can record Google Meet using a third-party screen recorder such as Bandicam. 

Can Google Meet record all participants at once?

No, Google Meet’s built-in recording feature does not enable users to record a screen showing all participants; it only allows you to capture the screen of the active speaker. You will need screen recording software like Bandicam to record the entire meeting screen and capture all participants.

In this article, we will discuss how to record Google Meet meetings without restrictions by using Bandicam Screen Recorder.
