Google Meet custom meeting codes: What to know about creating & using them
Google Meet has become one of the most used meeting platforms ever since it became available for regular users.
However, users have been asking for a way to generate their own custom meeting code for all Google Meet meetings.
Basically, users are asking for a way to change the generic Google Meet meeting code like meet.google.com/rst-uvw-xyz to a custom one like meet.google.com/piu-nika-web.
While the facility might be available on the meeting platform, it might be possible that only high-level Google Workspace or Workspace for Education admins can avail it.
This further means that regular Workspace users without premium or higher-level admin privileges cannot make custom meeting codes.
Nevertheless, those who are eager to get their own custom meeting code are looking for workarounds, including third-party alternatives, on their own.
While those looking to create their own Google Meet meeting URLs can try the aforementioned workaround, there are several other ways to create permanent URLs without using any third-party services.
These include creating a Google Calendar recurring event without an end-date, creating a Google Chat Room, and creating a Google Classroom class.
It must be noted that the Google Classroom URL will only work as long as the video call is active and will expire afterwords.
On the other hand, the Google Calendar recurring event URLs are permanent and can be used again if no end-date has been specified for the said event.
Another thing to note is that the alternatives given above do not allow users to create custom meet codes and permanent codes can only be created via the Google Calendar option.
That said, we hope Google listens to users plea to allow them to create custom meeting codes in the future.
In the meantime, you can try any or all of the alternatives given above and let us know which suits your needs by dropping a comment below.
