How to Review and Edit Your Google Meet Recording

You'll want to make sure that you're able to review and edit your video recording as well. You can use a free app on your computer, such as OpenShot video editing software or YouTube Studio. Alternatively, iMovie is also available for both Mac and iOS users. 

With these tools, you can cut out unnecessary portions of your recording. You'll also want to add an introduction before your recording and an end screen. That way people can know what information is of importance. They will also know where to take notes if they missed anything.

How to Live Transcribe Google Meet Calls

There are Google Meet transcript extensions that can help you transcribe your meeting live. Once installed, it may transcribe your meeting as it happens. The quality of these extensions varies depending on many factors.

They are typically not very accurate. They're helpful in a pinch if you miss something important. The problem is that the most important part may not transcribe correctly.

You can also use the closed captioning feature in Meet to transcribe the meeting. The problem is you will not be able to download the Google Meet closed captioning transcript.

One thing Google Meet doesn’t have is a way to transcribe conversations effectively. Audio transcriptions are a valuable tool for recording and managing calls. However, Google Meet isn't built to do that. 

The good news is there's an easy solution. The Notta Robot can join your Google Meet and automatically record and transcribe it. Best of all, it does so in real-time so there's no need to wait until after your meeting has ended!

What's the Difference Between Google Hangouts and Google Meet?

One big difference between Google Hangouts and Google Meet is how many people can join a meeting. While Hangouts can host 25 people at a time, Google Meet can host 250. 

If you're working on a project that requires several key players to attend, it might be best to use Google Meet. If you're hosting an informal video call or doing some work with a small team, stick with Hangouts.
