Daily use of services like Google Meet is more prevalent than ever. According to Google, there are 100 million Google Meet participants per day. Social distancing has led to the rise as people use video conferencing in a multitude of ways. These new use cases include everything from business conversations to school announcements. Our discussions have value irrespective of type, whether a sales call, internal check-ins, all-hands, or one-ones. The status quo has been to take handwritten notes or use our memory to recall critical information; the result is that these conversations are ephemeral. Since communication has shifted to video conferencing, it's easy for people to record a copy of the conversation.

How To Record With Google Meet

Any G Suite account can record any call on Google Meet natively with a single click. You can find the option under the "More options" (three-dot) icon. When you click "Record meeting," you will be asked to confirm to ask for other participants' consent, and the recording will start once they opt-in.

When a meeting ends (after some processing), Google will place a video file of the meeting in your Drive in a folder called "Meet Recordings," this folder is created automatically if it is your first recording. Additionally, if you are the meeting host, you will receive an e-mail with the video file as an attachment.

Benefits Of An AI Meeting Assistant

Recording our meetings is the first step to helping us remember the critical moments of the event. Unfortunately, a call recording doesn't provide the effortless recall that we call hoped for; instead, it creates additional work of searching a recording. Transcribing, summarizing, and generating insights using an AI meeting assistant can help build a searchable knowledge base for you or your company.

 An AI meeting assistant transcribes your recordings, making the content searchable. It can also summarize the call making it quick and easy to consume. Lastly, it can abstract important topics, action items, and other key events that occurred on the call. Capturing these insights and categorizing your meetings will generate a knowledge base of important information that can optimize your workflow and track action items over time.

Automatically Capture Knowledge From Your Meetings

If you intend to capture video recordings into a searchable knowledge base, it's essential to make the saving and processing as automated as possible. Hyperia makes ingesting your Google Meet recordings from your Drive easy with a Zapier integration. All you need to do is select your Google account and the "Meet Recordings" folder as a source in the trigger, and sign in to your Hyperia account and choose "Ingest a Recording" as an action.

With this setup, you can use conversational intelligence to generate meeting insights and search for your call recordings to track topics, decisions, and features in your knowledge base.

Final Thoughts

With people using video conferencing services more frequently, it has opened up the opportunity to automatically capture, store and create a searchable index of voice communications.
