When you click “New meeting,” you’ll now see the following three options: 
  • Create a meeting for later: Generate joining information for a new meeting. You can save this information to use later.

  • Start an instant meeting: Join a meeting in one click, without first going to the Meet greenroom. Once in the meeting, you can add others or copy the joining information to share. Please note, your camera and microphone will be on automatically if you select this option. You can turn them off once in the meeting.

  • Schedule in Google Calendar: Go to Calendar in a new tab to create an event with Meet conferencing details automatically populated.
