How to Record Google Meet on iPhone 

Google Meet isn't just limited to using the cameras on your iPhone to replay video. If you want to give live presentations, showcase ideas, train employees, or do just about anything that involves screen broadcasting, Google Meet makes that more than possible. But how do you record and share your screen in Google Meet on the iPhone and iPad?

Before you start screen recording in Google Meet, it's always a good idea to take potential privacy-related issues into account. Since Google Meet will broadcast everything on your screen with no exceptions, plan your screen-sharing sessions well in advance so that you don't share personal data accidentally with other participants.

To avoid disturbance, you need to turn on the "Do Not Disturb" option. You can use the Control Center to turn on/off the "Do Not Disturb" option, but it's also best to verify that the feature is set to work even with the screen unlocked. Once you've started or joined a Google Meet meeting, screen sharing on the iPhone is quite easy as long as you know what to do. Let's check out both methods below.
