Adjust video conferencing preferences

You can choose Google Meet to be your preferred default video meeting app, or turn Meet off as you desire. 

Automatically add a Google Meet video conference to your Calendar events.  

  1. On your computer, open Google Calendar.
  2. In the top right, click Settings Settings and then Settings.
  3. On the left, under "Event Settings." 
  4. Click on or off Automatically add Google Meet video conferences to events I create.


Can't find the checkbox "Automatically add Google Meet video..."

If you can't find the checkbox, your account is managed by a work or school administrator who set this behavior for your account.

I want to use a different conferencing solution

You can install other conferencing solutions to use with Google Calendar. Once installed these solutions will appear as options when manually adding conferencing to your Google Calendar events. Conferences from these solutions will not be automatically added to Google Calendar events.

I want to avoid multiple conferences on single events

There can only be a single conference attached to the conferencing field of a Google Calendar event. This conference can either be Google Meet conference or a conference from an installed conferencing Add-on.

You can install supported conferencing Add-ons via the Google Workspace Marketplace to use with Google Calendar. Once installed, these solutions will appear as options in the conferencing field dropdown when manually adding conferencing to your Google Calendar events. 

Using mechanisms other than the conferencing field to attach conferencing details (for example: inserting conference details directly into location fields, event descriptions, via browser extensions, etc) to Google Calendar events may result in more than one conference being attached to a single event.
