“Can you record on Google Meet without others knowing? I want to record a Google meeting for later playback and sum up, but I don’t want others to know. Can I record Google Meet without permission or without notifying others?”

You can’t record on Google Meet without others knowing if you use the built-in Record feature in Google Meet. The native recording feature will notify all attendants when you start or stop the recording. Fortunately, you can record on Google Meet without others knowing if you use a third-party Google Meet recorder, such as SurFlex Screen Recorder.

Whether you wish to record Google Meet without permission or without notifying others, you can use SurFlex Screen Recorder to get it done. It allows you to set up the storage folder, video format, video quality, and more. Unlike Google Meet which saves the recordings to Google Drive, such a tool directly stores the recorded videos on your PC or Mac. If that’s what you want, don’t hesitate to give it a try.

To record a Google Meet without notifying others:

Step 1. Download and install SurFlex Screen Recorder on your computer.

Step 2. Set up the audio recording option.

Step 3. Select the recording area.

Step 4. Click REC.
