Non-account users are unable to be a part of Google Meet that was created by a Google Meet created by a G Suite user
Google Meet can be described as the video-conferencing application by Google that was available only for G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Education users. Then , the pandemic hit and Google offered the service for free to everyone, so anyone with an Google account was able to join a meeting using Google Meet.
They’ve now stepped up the free service to allow you to host or start meetings without having the need for a G Suite account. Anyone who has an Google account is now able to use Google Meet to create meetings. Although the features available are less robust from what premium users can enjoy however that’s not an issue, as everybody uses it.
Every sentence above refers to either G Suite or a Google account. You must be thinking right the moment, “what about people without either?” Users who do not have an account with a Google account are able to use Google Meet but there are certain conditions to be met.

The second reason is that you can’t join an Google Meet meeting without an account using the mobile application. You must use the web application.
- If you are a G Suite user creates a Google Meet, anyone is able to join the meeting regardless of whether they have having a Google account.
- You are able to use the meet.google.com website on a PC for joining a meeting without having a Google account. It is not possible to join meetings using the mobile application.
