Google Hangouts Meet

This is a video conferencing solution available to all staff and students through Google Calendar. Hangouts Meet allows for meetings of up to 150 people simultaneously (extended by Google to 250 in response to the current situation, until July 2020).

The simplest way to use it is to setup a meeting in Google Calendar, invite your guests, choose add video conferencing and Hangouts Meet from within the meeting setup screen.

Your guests will then have a link within their calendar invite which will bring them into the video conference. Hangouts Meet for Education is widely used at UCD and provides a rich feature set comparable to Hangouts for Business.
