How to View Your Google Meet History

In the era of virtual meetings and conferences, Google Meet has become an integral part of our lives. If you are a working professional, you probably spend a few hours every week attending virtual meetings over Google Meet. Sometimes, you might need to reference a Meet call on a particular day, and for that, you need to view your Google Meet history. But how is that possible? Find out in this guide.

What Is a Calling Account in Google Meet?

You can schedule video or audio calls with your family, friends, or colleagues in Google Meet. But to use Meet, Google requires you to connect your Google account to a phone number using a compatible device with an active SIM. This linked account is called the Calling account, and you can find it under Calling settings > Calling account in Google Meet.

Without adding a number, you cannot make calls in Meet. Plus, the call history sync feature will not work across devices. If you have a Workspace account, you might need to contact the admin to enable this feature.

How to View Your Google Meet History on the Web

Google Meet only keeps a log of your call history. This data is synced between devices with the linked calling account/phone number. So, irrespective of whether you make calls from Meet on the web or your phone, you can view its history. However, your meeting history is not saved and there’s no way to view it. Consider recording important meetings on Google Meet if you know you might need to refer to it in the future. 

  1. Go to the Google Meet Calling page.
  2. Sign in with your account.
  3. Under Recent Activity, you should see all the recent calls made through Google Meet.
