Joining Google Meet Meetings With Pexip Just Got Easier

pexip

If you’ve already been using Google Meet, you know that it’s difficult to find SIP join information on Google Meet meeting invitations as the join information was hidden away under “More joining options.”

Google has made it simpler to join Google Meet calls from third-party conferencing systems by giving admins the option to automatically add SIP join information to new meetings in a more visible location. Now, users can find join information directly under the “Join by phone” option, instead of hidden behind a “More joining options” button.

How does this work for Pexip customers?

For new Pexip customers:

  • This new higher visibility of SIP joining information will be the default recommendation for all new Pexip customers.
  • If you’re using Pexip with a third-party calendar service, you will be able to join Google Meet video calls with just one click from the device.
  • If you’re using Pexip with Google Calendar, SIP meeting codes will automatically be added to new Calendar events.

For existing Pexip customers:

  • These features will be turned off by default. To activate, reach out to your Pexip partner to make the necessary changes.
  • It is important to note that you must be using your own calling domain e.g. addresses in the style @example.com or your own subdomain on onpexip.com e.g. addresses in the style @mydomain.onpexip.com.
