Use a Jamboard device in a video meeting

You can hold a video meeting on a Jamboard. Before using Jamboard for meetings, turn on Google Meet with Jamboard. If your board doesn’t display Meet "" in the top right, your administrator must set up Jamboard for video meetings.

A Jamboard can stream video from up to 3 participants. Remaining participants appear with video disabled. Unless intentionally disabled, users on other types of devices can see all video streams.

Tip: To make sure you don't join a meeting with an expired code and to better plan for the future meetings you create, check when meeting codes expire. Learn about Google Meet meeting codes.

Jamboard displays upcoming events up to 4 hours in advance. In the top-right corner of the board, select an event in the agenda.
