How do I log in to Google Meet, schedule a Google Meeting, and start a new Google Meeting?

Log in to Google Meet

If you can access your Benilde Gmail then you should be able to access, log into, and use Google Meet.

Open your browser, ideally Google Chrome, and log in to your Benilde Gmail account.  The credentials for your Benilde Google account are different from your Infonet account.  For Google, your username is your full name (with your first and second name together and your last name separated by a dot) followed by @benilde.edu.ph.  See attached image as a guide.

Logging in to your Benilde Gmail account

Click on NEXT, that will bring you to the next screen which will ask for your password.  This will be the password you nominated.

Input your Infonet password

After clicking on NEXT again, you will be brought to your Benilde Gmail immediately.  At the upper right of your screen, you will see waffle navigation. (See object circled in green.)  This is where you will find the icons of the Gsuite that you have access to including Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Hangouts, Google Drive, Google Docs, and Google Meet, among others.

So that your guests have a clearer understanding of what the meeting is all about, make sure to add a description or attachments.
