To enable or disable the recording feature, on Google Meet you will need to have a registered account under one of the paid plans offered by Google Workplace. The specific Workplace editions that allow recording are; Essentials, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Editions (Starters, Essentials, Plus Standard) Education Plus, Teaching and Learning Upgrade and Workspace Individual Subscriber.

If you are an administrator of a Google Workspace organization you have the permission to record meetings on Google Meet. As an administrator you can grant participants the ability to record meetings and share them with others who were unable to attend. Teachers using their Google Workspace account can also record classes. Allow their students to do the same. Additionally administrators have the option to disable recording for participants.

Unfortunately there is no automated way to initiate recordings as it requires intervention from an administrator or another authorized user, for each meeting. If you do not have a Google Workspace subscription there are third party software options that can assist in recording your Google Meet sessions.

Sure in order to automatically record your Google Meet sessions you’ll need to use Meet Pro. Keep in mind that Meet Pro is only available, with a Google Workspace subscription and it offers an auto record feature.
