Hangouts Meet Adds Nine Countries to Dial-in Meeting Support

Hangouts Meet, the Google G Suite enterprise video conference solution, has added nine new countries to the dial-in support list.  With dial-in support, Hangouts Meet will generate a phone number for members to dial in to the meeting if they are not able to join via video.  The new countries are:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Czech Republic
  • Finland
  • Ireland
  • Norway
  • Romania
  • Switzerland
  • Turkey

With these additions, there are now 24 countries were dial-in is supported.  International dial-in support came to the conferencing solution back in October 2017 with it mostly being in Western European countries initially.

It is important to note that this change only impacts G Suite Enterprise customers only as that is the only tier where Meet’s dial-in support is offered.  If you are such a customer, there isn’t anything you need to do to add the new countries.  It is a cloud-side change although it is recommended to let your users know the option is now available.

If you are a non-Enterprise G Suite customer and want to move up to Enterprise, it can be done through your G Suite reseller or through Google directly (depending on how you signed up initially).  Your reseller can also give you the pricing changes involved for the number of users you have in your organization.
