How to record a Google Hangout

2. Click Record meeting.

3. Once you click Accept, the recording will begin. All other participants will be notified when both the recording starts and stops.

Depending on the length of the recording, after some time it will generate and be saved within the organizer's Google Drive in a folder titled "Meet Recordings." An email with the recording link will also be sent to the meeting organizer and the person who started the recording.
