Google Meet 'Invite failed to send' error troubles many, potential workaround inside
Google Meet is one of the most widely used video conferencing tools on the market. It has always faced stiff competition from the likes of Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that it’s free from the occasional bugs and issues. We have highlighted several of these in the past in our dedicated Google Meet section, along with workarounds if any.
Google Meet ‘Invite failed to send’ error
According to reports, some Google Meet users are facing an issue where they are getting an error while inviting someone for a meeting.
The invite process begins with a user starting a new meeting, clicking on ‘Add others’, and selecting the emails of those they want to invite.
However, affected Google Meet users say that after selecting the option to send the invite link to others, they keep getting an ‘Invite failed to send’ error message.
This is particularly inconveniencing those using Google Meet for personal or professional purposes.
I cant send an invite in goggle meet. keep getting error message that invite cant send. i am putting in a correct email address but i get the message that my invite cant be sent. Any ideas how to fix this?
why wont my google meet invites send? i start a new meeting, click add others. click their emails. the it says invite not sent. i have no idea what to do? this is a huge issue.
Some have tried troubleshooting methods like restarting their PC, closing and reopening their web browsers, and logging in and out of their Google accounts but nothing seems to work.
One of those affected said Safari had no similar issues, so it’s possible that non-Chromium browsers may not be affected. That said, you may try the Firefox browser and see if it works.
Another way around this problem is to manually copy/paste the link into an email and then send it to the person you want to invite for a meeting.
Until Google fixes the issue, we will be keeping tabs on the matter and update this space as and when we come across more information so stay tuned.
