If you find your Google Meet recording unavailable suddenly, check out the reasons that may cause you to fail to see the record button:

Note: Google doesn't offer the recording feature to everyone. It is only available for the computer version, and users need eligible Workspace accounts for specific editions.

To record Google Meet in high quality without premium, use a third-party screen recorder, EaseUS RecExperts.

Record Anything on Your Windows PC

Record screen/audio/webcam without a time limit or watermark

With no time limit, lag, or watermark, it enables you to record Google Meet without permission. You can record Google Meet whenever you want to capture only essential moments. Feel free to try this screen recorder if you also want to record Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Bluejeans, Webex, or others.

Let's see what may cause Google Meet recording unavailable and how to fix it.

1. You use the recording feature on mobile devices.

Open Google Meet on your computer to start recording a meet call instead.

2. Your admin hasn't enabled the recording feature in the Google Admin console.

Step 1. Sign in to your Google Admin console using an administrator account.

Step 2. Navigate to Menu > Apps > Google Workspace > Google Meet.

Step 3. Go to Meet video settings > Recording > Let people record their meetings. Click Save.

3. The meeting you joined is set up in a conference room (Meet hardware, Chrome plug-in, or others).

Schedule the meeting in the Calendar or confirm the meeting is created by a person, not a device.

4. The Google account of the meeting organizer's account is disabled.

Step 1. Go to the Google Calendar event to delete recurring meeting.

Step 2. Start a new session by adding a new meeting code as the new owner.

5. You join a meeting only to present.

You cannot record while already in a video conference room. The only fix is to join the meeting before it starts.

As you can see, it can be complicated to solve the Google Meet recording unavailable issue. To make your video conference recording simpler, you are suggested to resort to EaseUS RecExperts.

Download EaseUS RecExperts to your computer to record a Google Meet with ease.
