Google Meet is a great program for meeting with friends and colleagues over the internet. However, unlike some Google products, you need to pay for a G Suite subscription to use most of its features.

If someone has invited you to a Google Meet appointment, though, you don’t need to pay anything to join it. All you need is an invitation code or link.

If someone has sent you an invitation link, all you need to do is click on it, and you’ll be brought to the appointment. But if someone has sent you a code, there are a few more steps.

Here’s how to use an invitation code to join a Google Meet appointment.
