Outlook pings you about the upcoming meeting in the calendar and you can use the notes to join the Google Meet meeting. The same functionality is also available in Outlook web. Let’s explore this.

About Outlook Mobile Apps

Unfortunately, you cannot create Google Meet meetings using the Outlook iOS and Android apps. The addon repository differs from platform to platform. That is, you won’t be able to take advantage of the same amount of add-ins as the Outlook mobile apps.

Outlook mobile apps support Zoom as an add-in. You can easily enable the Zoom plug-in from the Outlook Settings menu and create Zoom calls from the Outlook Calendar.

Understandably, Google Meet is also available in Google Calendar. If you prefer Google’s calendar service, you can easily create Google Meet meetings without installing add-ons. It’s a simple affair and offers the same integration with Microsoft’s Teams on Outlook Calendar.
