Make your meetings even more engaging and interactive with Miro in Google Meet. View and open any of your Miro boards or even start a new one, and collaborate with anyone - even without a Miro profile. Save your work for later and access it at any time.
Google Meet integrations are now a part of the Google Workspace add-on; this means that users who already have the Miro add-on installed will continue to have access to Google Meet. Users who do not have the Miro add-on installed will need it in order to access the Google Meet add-on.

The board picker in Miro for Google Meet
Select the right level of board access for everyone in the meeting and click Embed board. You can choose between four options: allow view/comment/edit access, or leave the board private and available for signed-in Miro users who have access to the board on the Miro side.
⚠️ Anyone can comment option is not supported if you embed a board located in a free team.
✏️ If you select Private in this flow but the board is set to public availability on the Miro side, it will default to public availability in Google Meet as well. However, the access level that you set for the embedded board on the Google Meet side does not affect the board sharing settings set on the Miro side. Learn more.
✏️ For Enterprise plan Miro users, your access settings will follow organization-wide access controls which might imply that some sharing options may be restricted. Learn more: Managing Enterprise sharing policy for embed integrations.Board access settings inside Google Meet
